Power BI Desktop gets an update – here’s all that’s new

Microsoft’s update last month for Power BI Desktop brought new default themes, performance improvements for multi-dimensional and DirectQuery models, and plenty more. Later in the same month, the tech giant released a new version for Power BI on-premises data gateway, bringing it more in line with the changes introduced to the desktop version.

Now, Microsoft has unveiled a feature summary for the October update to Power BI Desktop. The highlights this month include automatic page refreshing for DirectQuery, a complete Q&A revamp, general availability for some new connectors, and the introduction of Query Diagnostics. There are also a bunch of other updates having to do with new visuals, a new file format, and performance improvements.
