    The July 2018 version was released this week and has some really big features in it. Most notable is the ability to do "composite" queries when doing DirectQuery. Meaning, you can have more than one data source with DirectQuery right now.

    Currently, it's only in Preview, so be sure to enable it in the Preview Features under options. Also, while it's in preview, you can't publish these to the Power BI service. But that won't last long, so jump in and start to check it out!

    Multiple data sources will be huge. I'll tamper my expectation until I try it out, but it gets us closer.
