RML now supports SQL 2012 (and SQL 2014)

If you use the Replay Markup Language (RML) tool set then like me you will have been frustrated by the fact that it hadn't been updated to work with trace files captured from SQL 2012. You could probably assume that this was because the SQL Profiler Trace feature for purpose of trace capture (data engine only) is flagged for depreciation in future released (see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms181091.aspx).

Thankfully last week a new version was released which fully support SQL 2012 and even SQL 2014 CTP2 trace file definitions. I have just gone through the process of uninstalling my RML tools, installing the new version, and straight away I can process the trace files captured on a SQL 2012 instance. Hurray!

Be warned though you cannot use the new version of the Reporter tool to access any databases for previously processed trace data. I typically use this tool for performance analysis so I might keep the analysis databases around for a few weeks, so this just means I have to reprocess the trace files to generate reports compatible with the new version. Still worth it to get the benefit of the new supportability.

If you find that you cannot click on the navigational hyperlinks on the Main Performance Overview report (e.g. "Unique Batches", "Unique Statements", "Interesting Events", etc) then you will need to install the hotfix or ReportViewer.
