Changes in the June 2018 Update of Power BI Desktop
Part two of a four-part series of blogs

  3. Various small improvements to specific chart types
  4. Features still in preview in the June 2018 update

For a cumulative list of all of the updates to Power BI Desktop in the last few year or two, see this blog.  Our two-day Power BI Desktop course always uses the latest version of the software.

Sorting and filtering

You no longer have to go into Query Editor to sort or filter tables of data.

And I really can't think of anything else to add to this!
