MDX Keyword Colors In SSDT

Shabnam Watson notes that MDX keyword coloring is available in SQL Server Data Tools for Visual Studio 2015:

The MDX keywords in a cube script were not properly changing colors in the SQL Serve Data Tools (SSDT) Preview version for Visual Studio 2015. (14.0.60316.0). (See my previous post on this problem here.)

The different keyword colors make it easier to write, organize and read an MDX script inside a cube.

Looks like they squashed that bug.
