June 2018 Release of Power BI Report Server?

Our team's migration project to PBIRS has been delayed a few months, but I'm crossing my fingers that we'll be able to move forward in June. Now that we're closing in on June, and I believe the original idea was quarterly releases for Report Server...does anyone know if we can plan on seeing a new release in the next few weeks? Thanks!

Hi @chrisfin,


Any update on when we can expect the new release and what will be included in it? I am particularly keen to get the Tooltip Report functionality into our on-prem PBI solutions, is that to be included in the up coming release?


Where will the new release availability be announched? I'm a little confused about which PBI news source I should be monitoring, is there a single news source to rule them all?





Chris has announced a provisional date of the 15th August for the release. This was last updated during the bizApp session last week.


Announced for the next release is


> Rollup of new PBI Features

> Improved Custom Visuals

> SAP HANA DQ (Kerberos)


I suggest you watch the video linked in an earlier thread. Answers a lot of our questions and outlines the plan for the report server.


Best place for roadmap is





I'm just seeing this now, thank you.  Are you still planning on three releases a year, or even this year?  Knowing the 8/15 date helps immensely with our immediate planning, but knowing whether you're still committed to three releases, either by October (probably unlikely) or by end or year will help even more.


The plan is do three releases a year, yes, and we plan on having another release prior to the end of the year.   


It's highly unlikely that tooltip report feature will be included as it's still in  preview and preview stuff is not included in report server.



That's so very unfortunate, it's something our users are pushing hard for Smiley Sad


Any feedback on the aug 15? And do we have a speculative date for the 3rd release?


Any update on the release date given that the 15th is today Smiley Happy
