Power BI – Power BI Preview Features in Action
In this blog post by Chuck (Charles) Sterling he goes into details on all the preview features that are going to be shown at the last 3 stops of the Power BI World Tour.
I went to the Sydney event and I thoroughly enjoyed it, I met some new friends, networked and learned a lot.

Power BI – Developer Update for September
As you can see above there were 3 updates this month.
The first being an update to the Capacity Metrics App for Power BI Premium workspaces where you can now not only monitor capacity, refreshes and data loads, but now there is also query metrics which is great to see if there is a long running query or a query that consumes a lot of memory and CPU.
There are now also advanced URL filtering capabilities, which often can be used to either compliment or to extend access to data for specific users or groups of people.
There is a new API where you can update the connection between cloud and on-premise data sources via the API. This is really a great improvement, as often data sources move around and with this API it makes it a lot easier to get this done programmatically.
And finally, Row Level Security now supports ASCII characters in the Username property.
