Power BI Desktop Update September 2018

As part of  the September update, there is a preview of aggregations, which allows you to seamlessly store only summarized values in memory without having to load your entire dataset into Power BI, greatly improving the performance of your reports. This month also includes a preview of a PDF file connector, which is the most requested connector on UserVoice; and one of the biggest updates is the advanced query editor in quite a while, M intellisense.
