@marcster_uk When will the version be available for download?

It’s already available … perhaps the wrong link?
Download Microsoft Power BI Desktop from Official Microsoft Download Center

@Greg I got the update from here:

Power BI December 2020 Feature Summary | Microsoft Power BI Blog | Microsoft Power BI

The visual still has lots of issues to be fixed. Very hard to make it visually appealing with more than 3 or 4 categories. No sorting available based on the values. Why to release something which already has lots of issues to deal with. It’s funny how the Microsoft listed down the bugs to be fixed as Milestones to achieve.

Does anyone know if the Direct Query feature works with Dataflows or is it only with Live Datasets?

I’m curious if I’ll be able to combine dataflows with an excel file and schedule an automatic refresh of the data on the web app.

Also - will this feature allow you to create groups using a live dataset?

Does this help: Power BI Dataflows Direct Query Support | Microsoft Power BI Blog | Microsoft Power BI
