We badly need this GA, as we need to give users ability to show last six months data dynamically in power bi report server, for that dataset import is very important. Hope we get it soon.

The fall (october) release is available now https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/new-version-of-power-bi-report-server-now-available/

 

Regards

@jtarquino Do we get Power BI desktop August GA with this download link? It says Report server will have capabilities from Preview version. Any idea on when GA for desktop will be available?

Latest desktop version is also available at the same download link. Basically go https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/report-server/ and then click on Advanced download options. 

@vickyd: ya i saw that,but it doesn't say whether its GA or preview version. There is no official word that GA is available. Are you sure the Desktop version provided with report server is GA version?

The ocotber release is indeed GA

@vickyd so should we uninstall the previous version and install these? or the installation itself will detect previous versions of desktop & report server and we can update it?

yes you can just upgrade (if you were using the august preview you will need to republish your PBI reports)

Last information I received on a similar question is that it will be released in the middle of this quarter so somewhere around 15th Nov. No specific dates have been provided. 

 

Note: There will most likely be more features included than what's in the August Preview version. 

Do you know other's feature icluded in this GA?

 

Actually were looking for  DIRECT QUERY and SCHEDULE REFRESH.

Scheduled Refresh, Direct Query, Unlimited PBIX file sizes, a Fix for the ability to download CSV directly from the browser, a Fix for the Treemap Visual not loading in the 64-bit version of PBIRS Desktop and a Fix for compatibility with the OKViz Smart Filter custom visual should be included as a minimum as far as we are concerned.
