Not an earth-shaking update, but lots of nice new features nonetheless to make your life easier, including a better DAX editor, the ability to search for text when filtering a visual and a clever new connector which guesses what you want to import from a website.

The September update of Power BI finally breathes life into report page tooltips, which have been in limbo for a while. You can also copy data from Power BI reports by right-clicking, use some keyboard short-cuts for visual design, apply built-in themes, set fixed-width padding by column example and show categories on the X axis of scatter charts.

This is a bigger update than most, largely because it includes two major new features emerging from preview (report themes and desktop Q&A), but it's the export to PDF feature which really catches the eye.
Posted by Andy Brown on 25 July 2018
This month sees features allowing you to change the appearance of the icons at the top right of each visual, and also to change the appearance of the wallpaper surrounding a report, but otherwise all of the enhancements are fairly minor.
Posted by Andy Brown on 09 June 2018
There are hardly any changes in this update - the only significant one is that you now sort and filter data within Power BI Desktop itself, rather than having to go into Query Editor.
Posted by Andy Brown on 14 May 2018
New features introduced into Power BI Desktop in this update include conditional formatting by different fields, the inclusion of filters in drill-through and minor improvements to line and funnel charts.
Posted by Andy Brown on 07 April 2018
This month's update allows users to add customisable buttons to a report, incorporates a numeric slicer and includes a few other smaller changes.
Posted by Andy Brown on 20 March 2018
By far the biggest new feature in the March 2018 update of Power BI Desktop is bookmarks (so big, in fact, that it gets a summary treatment in this blog and a separate, longer blog all to itself).
Posted by Andy Brown on 15 February 2018
You can now search for formatting properties, have slicers which work across pages and create quick measures, among other new features.
Posted by Andy Brown on 11 January 2018
This month introduces a smorgasbord of small but useful updates, including the ability to hide pages, colour data labels and to set the anchor (from) date for a relative date slicer.
Posted by Andy Brown on 04 January 2018
Field descriptions anyone? This is a fairly minor update, although we like responsive horizontal slicers, and there are some exciting things coming up in preview mode.
Posted by Andy Brown on 15 November 2017
There's not too much to whet the appetite here: most of the changes are extensions to existing features, such as conditional formatting and column-by-example.
Posted by Andy Brown on 09 October 2017
On the minus side, the changes introduced in this update (mainly a selection pane and spotlight facility) are tiny, but on the plus side there is a huge new feature (bookmarks) waiting in the wings in preview mode.
Posted by Andy Brown on 12 September 2017
The September 2017 Power BI Desktop update introduces ribbon charts, a feature to explain the increase or decrease for any chart point and a drill-through feature allowing you to temporarily switch to a summary page.
Posted by Andy Brown on 14 August 2017
A quiet month, after the frenetic activity of the July update, sees lots of small changes to matrices, tables and charts, but no single big update.
Posted by Andy Brown on 13 July 2017
This is a bigger update than usual, with the highlight undoubtedly being the official roll-out of the much-trailed new table and matrix visuals.
Posted by Andy Brown on 26 June 2017
This update includes lots of nice features, such as line markers and the ability to change font typefaces, as well as many more changes!
Posted by Andy Brown on 17 May 2017
The May 2017 Power BI Update brings in a couple of nice new query transforms and some new chart features, but the big changes are still in preview mode.
Posted by Andy Brown on 28 April 2017
This update includes some nice new features - for example, creating columns by example and changing chart axis titles. Read this blog for a full list!
Posted by Andy Brown on 24 March 2017
This is a small update, although the new matrix tool which is currently in preview mode will be a big change.
