Power BI Weekly Issue 121: 3rd August 2021

This week, we've been given the Updated Timeline and milestones for Premium Gen2 General Availability, with the team outlining a bunch of updates coming to the metrics app, and sharing that the Gen2 GA is planned for Sept 27th. We've also been told about the new Admin APIs to Determine Access Rights (Public Preview) for various artifact types, and a notice to expect an API later in the summer to query which assets a specific user has access to.

Elsewhere this week, Andy Cutler has written about a new feature in the blog Creating a Power BI Streaming Dataflows Solution, Steve Campbell has joined Reid Havens to describe Implementing Proper Version Control in Power BI, and Allison Kennedy has written a swathe of interesting blogs under the Tokyo Olympics theme, covering Power Automate integration, alerting, small multiples and more.
