XI 3.x - Universe Connection Manager?

In the What's New document for XI 3.0, the following is listed as an enhancement to Designer:

The Universe Connection Manager is a new wizard that simplifies the way you manage the connections between your Business Objects universes and data sources. Use the Universe Connection Manager to create new connections, and to modify your existing connections. You can also use the Universe Connection Manager to check the integrity of available universes. For example, you can use the Universe Connection Manager to check the structure and joins of a universe to verify that it returns the data that you expect.

Anyone have any idea what this is, and where to find it? I know how to set up connections in Designer, but that functionality hasn't changed much since v5 at least, and I just don't see the additional functionality described there. What am I missing?
