New Office Add-in in 10.1.3.3

I don't think I can quite yet start talking, showing, and in general get excited about the new BI Office Add-in the upcoming BI 10.1.3.3 release quite yet, at least on the blog, but Mark Rittman (Rittman Mead Consulting) has a post (Collaborate’07 Day 2 - BI Roadmap Update) where he mentions Matt Elumba talking about the upcoming BI 10.1.3.3 release that has a new Office Add-in. Yes - a brand new Excel and PowerPoint Add-in with some really, really nice functionality that I am confident shall make every single BI customer to use this add-in. I have confidence in confidence. Or... to use this spiffy new feature of Blogger (How do I use the transliteration feature?) - मन में है विशवास। हम होंगे कामयाब एक दिन.
And of course, there is the integration of Discoverer with BI Publisher - pixel perfect reporting, here I come!
