This update only includes a couple of tweaks for charts, although more excitingly the paginated reports visual is now in preview.

May's update to Power BI Desktop is a big one, encompassing new ways of viewing models, tables and fields, a new text box, smart narratives (to explain data) and a new anomaly detection feature (to explain exceptions).
