The Power Query update for August is late ? #powerbi

The updates to Power Query has a monthly update cycle and I decided to see if I could use Power Query and Power View to analyze when to be ready at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/powerbi/ to be the first to tweet the news.

So by using the RSS feed as an XML table in Power Query – I was able to create a power pivot model and visualize it with Power View in Excel.

Here is what I discovered about the latest 25 blog posts from the Power BI team.

  • Expect the blog post to turn up at 16:00 GMT
  • Don’t expect a blog post on a Friday – there is a much better change on a Tuesday or Wednesday
  • Expect the update to Power Query to be at the end of the month J

You can download the model here – and make let’s keep our fingers crossed for yet an update to Power Query – hopefully arriving at 16:00 GMT today – J

    Patience. All good things come to those who wait! I wonder what is install for us? The release of the DMG could be classified as an update? That was quite a step forward with that release!

      :-) – totally agree – but after 3 month of consecutive update we have been totally spoiled ..

      And the DMG update is really a huge step forward but not in the core Power Query tool.
