There's not much new in this month's update. The Performance Analyzer is a great idea, for working out which bits of your report are running slowly, but all of the other changes are minor (as you'll see if you read this blog!).

- Analysing the speed of Power BI reports

Changes to Power BI in the May 2019 Update
After a bumper update last month, there's understandably not much to shout about this time round (although if you're struggling with reports running slowly, you'll welcome the new Performance Analyzer tab):
|New performance analyzer||If a report is running slowly, you can now see which visuals or queries are the culprits.|
|Speeding up reports||Microsoft have introduced a couple of behind-the-scenes changes to speed up report execution.|
|Minor visual improvements||You can now position line chart labels better, and change the text size of KPI labels.|
|ArcGIS geolocation errors||If you have geo-location errors in an ArcGIS map, you can now copy these to the clipboard.|
I did say there wasn't much new this month!
