In addition, the new model-driven calculation engine that’s part of dataflows makes the process of data preparation more manageable, more deterministic, and less cumbersome for data analysts and report creators alike.

The first release of Power BI Report Builder, which is free, standalone Windows Desktop application that allows you to author Paginated Reports in Power BI Service and Mobile Features.

This new experience replaces the four of the following tiles that you saw previously with wide range of metrics measuring the usage in the last 7 days to better portray the health of your capacity. It helps capacity admins to make data driven decision without having to leave the portal.

  • Query Caching in Power BI Premium

To help with the perceived performance of reports, the query caching in Power BI Premium is added in Power BI Service and Mobile Features. This feature instructs the Premium capacity to use its local caching service to maintain query results, avoiding having the underlying data source compute those results on demand.

Cached query results are specific to the user and the report context and always follow security rules. You can control query caching behavior on the dataset settings page in the Power BI service.
