Re: August 2017 Update?

Hey,

 

on this blog post

https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/here-s-how-microsoft-executives-are-using-power-bi/

, down in the comments it is stated, that the August update will be released any time soon, personally I guess today or tomorrow at the latest.

Re: August 2017 Update?

The reason I asked is because a couple of months ago (I think it was the June update) - the program was updated, but the desktop version did not let you know. So I just wanted to be sure I didn't miss it.

I think it was in July when the program did not notify about the update. I only found out about it from Power BI blog.

Re: August 2017 Update?

If you turn on Updates under File|Options, the PowerBI Desktop should automatically inform you that an update is available when a new one has been released.  It's been working ok for me since they introduced the feature:updates.png

There's an "yet to be announced" August 2017 version: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=45331

 

Downloading now. :-)

Too excited man? So am I.
I wish they'd release at least the bookmark feature.

Just downloaded it.  Great features, but I am missing the marker option for line graphs.
