    For the report development, above only Visual Studio is only mentioned.  I see articles on MSDN referencing Report Builder 3.0.  Is Microsoft still supporting this with reference to AX 2012 and will it be supported in the release after 2012?  If so is the intention to only use Cube data from the report builder?
