What’s in the box, man??? Is it a puppy, or just more socks (we’ve been getting a lot of socks lately…)

Perhaps…

From what I can tell, very little.
Not had a chance to have a deep dive though… have you found something new? (before the official blog post is released)…

@marcster_uk ,

Just two things that jump out to me:

  1. Power Platform section on the Insert Menu

  1. Mysterious Power BI Infrastructure update in Preview Options. No explanation available yet, even when you click on “Learn More”

I have high hopes for #2, since it smells a lot like the “metadata update” that preceded the introduction of the External Tools menu.

Definitely not the ability to set axis intervals. Which by the way should have been shipped with the first ever release of the product!

Not even socks…fruitcake. :stuck_out_tongue:

Indeed. We’ll just keep hoping for good stuff in next release…

And here is the official blog post…

I think the best thing is that the new model view (which I like…) is now GA, so it will stop asking me if I want to update my model view every time I open a file.

:sunglasses: Could this be upgraded to socks @BrianJ or is it still fruit cake? :birthday:

I withdraw my overly hasty fruitcake rating, and upgrade it to “box o’ socks”.
