Power BI Desktop May 2016 Update is out now, and there is still no official announcement in Power BI blog for it, however Koen already posted a blog post about it. Just to name a few major updates; Conditional Formatting, Quick Calc, and Three new standard measures. Here are my first glance view of these features;

Conditional Formatting

you can now click on a column added to a table’s field, and choose Conditional Formatting

then you can format it as you want.

Quick Calc

This allows you to create quick measures

2016-06-01_00h35_30

and you can show it in a percentage of total if you want

2016-06-01_00h35_01

This helps you to create charts with percentage as an extra axis

Three New Measures; Standard Deviation, Median, and Variance
