Release Notes for Tableau 10.2.1
Note: Tableau Desktop customers in environments with Product Updates enabled will be prompted to upgrade a few days after a maintenance release is made available. For more information, see the Tableau Knowledge Base.
In some cases, when you used a text file union data source, using a FIXED level of detail expression partitioned by the concatenation of the table name and another field would not return any data.
When connected to file-based data sources, data update time dynamic text showed the last time the data source was refreshed instead of when the file itself was updated.
Assigned color palettes would change when saving, closing, and re-opening certain workbooks.
Emoji characters were not properly displayed in Tableau Desktop for Mac.
Editing aliases for discrete fields would sometimes result in an internal error.
An internal error would sometimes occur when you tried to join an Excel data source with an SAP HANA table.
Exporting all data from the View Data dialog did not respect current selections for the Show Aliases and Show all fields check boxes. Instead, the selections from the last time the dialog was closed would be used.
Tableau Desktop would take an unreasonable amount of time to launch on some Mac systems. A workaround was to remove .local from the machine host name.
Certain custom WMS maps would be rendered with large white gaps in map tiles.
In some cases, when continuous and discrete instances of the same field were being used, attempting to add a field from a secondary data source would cause Tableau Desktop to crash.
In some authoring scenarios, involving a very large number of marks, Tableau Desktop would become unresponsive. Most of these scenarios worked fine in prior version of Tableau Desktop.
When connected to a Hive data source, converting a string field to date would return null values.
When connected to Amazon Redshift, an initial SQL error would occur if your initial SQL contained an inner select statement that returned zero rows.
Opening some workbooks would fail with an error: element 'tuple' is not allowed for content model '(value)'
When editing map layers, the washout slider would not be displayed when using Tableau Desktop on a low resolution display or if the application window was resized to a smaller size.
The Include Zero checkbox had no effect when editing an axis for an area mark chart.
Joining tables containing fields with unsupported data types would result in an internal error.
Mitigated an issue with creating extracts on the unsupported Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 (non-R2) operating systems. Beginning with Tableau 10.3, we will begin blocking installations on these operating systems.
The Tableau Online Sync Client would sometimes error or crash when signing in.
