Is there an update this month? Today's the last day of January.

There will be no January update. Normal service will resume in February.

Any idea when?

@Nexter normally it's the 2nd or 3rd week of the month. Anywhere between the 15-23rd on average.

This week..??

Hopefully! I have a feeling that due to the holiday at the end of the year may have put them slightly behind. Their team has been doing a fantastic job over the last year, so they more than deserved some time off. I have seen a few comments on other blog posts about the Report Server update being pushed to February.

Can you link the blog(s)?


Edit: I see what you're reading.


To paraphrase: Microsoft just released upcoming notes on the "Power" platforms for April-September 2019. The PDF they release states that expected January 2019 features will be released in September. It also shows an update for May, but keep in mind this document WILL NOT say anything involving January, as it's outside the date scope(April-September).


Don't jump too fast to conclusions. The PDF's are huge and contain errors. I've seen an official Microsoft PDF state 2 different release dates of Power BI Report the same document.


Not jumping to any conclusions, I am just reporting what I've seen... the update will come sooner or later regardless

Thanks. The black icon was unexpected but it's a great idea.

Was there a published PowerBI Report Server update (not Desktop) yet?


When will we see an upgrade for PowerBI Report Server (on prem)?

@seschu0123 Nothing this month yet, the last one was in August 2018. Report Server updates are supposed to occur Every 4 month's, so I think its safe to assume it could occur this month. If you keep an eye on the Power BI Blog, there will be a separate post regarding Report Server updates.

They've committed to a fixed upgrade cycle.

"Starting in 2019, we will be shipping a new release of Power BI Report Server in January, May and September each year."
