In addition to fixes, this fixpack has a few new capabilities in the areas of integration and visualization. Relative to FP1, the overall size of the fixpack is smaller. We have delivered some nice technology previews of new capabilities in this fixpack that we invite you to try out and provide us feedback. Backward compatibility continues to be preserved. This allows customers to confidently apply the latest fixes to their deployments while at the same time deciding if they would like to try out new features.
New in this release:
Stand-alone Console Integration Support
External content can be integrated from stand-alone consoles that are supported by Dashboard Application Services Hub. For example, you can integrate SmartCloud Application Performance Management UI tasks with IBM Dashboard Application Services Hub and manage from a single pane of glass.

We have made it easier to configure the High Availability feature of DASH by removing 9 manual configuration steps.

These chart types can be rendered in the console using the new charting technology: Pie, Line, Column and clustered column, Bar and clustered bar, Area, Bubble, Scatter, and Treemap.
