Release 126.96.36.199.900 installs Release 188.8.131.52.000 as its base and includes these new features:
A new Document Repository installed with Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting. Oracle Hyperion Reporting and Analysis Framework is no longer installed.
New Financial Reporting roles to support the new Document Repository.

Imports, saves, and modifies batches, books, reports, and documents; creates and modifies shortcuts and folders. Creates, modifies, and deletes data sources and database connections in Financial Reporting through Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Workspace.
|Report Designer Scheduler||Content Manager||Scheduler|

Note: Access to the repository does not grant access to individual files and folders, which are secured by file properties and permissions.
