Power BI Embedded GA

Microsoft Power BI Embedded is an Azure service allowing developers to embed fully interactive reports and visualizations in customer-facing apps without writing any code. It allows users to visualize large data sets directly from a wide variety of cloud sources like Azure SQL Database and Azure SQL Data Warehouse using DirectQuery to ensure data is always up to date without having to move it to Power BI. Microsoft also announced it will be releasing SDKs for .NET and JavaScript to simplify development and providing versioned APIs to ensure users are building against stable APIs as new features are released.

Power BI publish to web GA

Power Bi publish to web, now generally available at no additional cost to existing Power BI Free and Pro users, allows users to embed interactive Power BI visualizations directly in blogs and websites.
