[Personal Gateway Upgrade required] The On-premises data gateway (personal mode) is now available

ACTION REQUIRED BY 7/31/2017 to avoid interruption in your Power BI Data refresh of on-premises data

Hello gateway owners
Today we're shipped a new, enhanced version of the personal gateway - On-premises data gateway (personal mode). We’re starting the process of moving all existing personal gateways to use the new release. The new release of the gateway is built on top of the same on-premises data gateway infrastructure and will be part of the unified gateway story across the Power * suite (Power BI, PowerApps, and Microsoft Flow). New features in this release include: an improved Fast Combine experience, ability to delete the gateway from the Power BI portal, export logs functionality, and enhanced overall reliability and performance.
More features will be added in the next few months, including the ability to use the gateway in personal mode outside Power BI.
Here’s the link to install the new On-premises data gateway (personal mode).
Moving to the new personal gateway is very simple; you just need to install and configure the On-premises data gateway (personal mode) on your machine. Once it’s configured your datasets will discover the new gateway, and all refreshes will start going through the On-premises data gateway (personal mode) instead of the old personal gateway. Documentation on the new gateway, how to install it, and list of FAQs can be found here.
Refreshes through your existing personal gateway will stop working after July 31st, 2017; please ensure that you upgrade to the new gateway by July 31st, 2017 to keep your datasets up to date. If you have a technical reason preventing you from using the On-premises data gateway (personal mode) or have not been able to migrate to the new personal gateway, please use this post to give feedback or ask questions.
