General Instability of PBI Desktop - And when will it be fixed?

I deal with this all the time and it's frustrating. I seem unable to leave Power BI Desktop open for any extended period without it crashing. Multiple times per week I'm presented with this dialog upon reopening the app: 




This has been going on for quite some time, I've since gotten a new laptop and had to reinstall everything fresh, so I don't believe it's a PC issue. Others in our organization have the same issue. 


When's this issue going to be fixed? Thanks.

So now Desktop is doing this thing where irt it won't save my file. I click Save and it goes through the motion but doesn't save. I try to close the file, it tells me I have unsaved changes, I clikc yes to Save, and it just sits there... 


Sure. A reboot will fix it. Till it happens again. And it keeps happening.
