It seems unfair that Power BI desktop is updated each month with new and improved visuals but we will have to wait several months longer to have these improvements in Power BI Report Server. For example the new matrix visual is big improvement but those with Report Server will have to wait about 6 months before it is available to them. I'd like Report Server updates in parallel to Desktop updates.

As stated late last year, we're now committed to shipping regular updates every 4 months in January, May and September. This frequency is the best balance we've found for Enterprise customers between too rapid a cadence and too slow.

This update is really critical for enterprise level user adoption.

For now the Power Bi Server Desktop will be released 3 / 4 times a year. It is frustrated to see every month a new version for the cloud solution and for the on premise version we have to wait a while.

I heard that only every quarter there will be a new release for Power Bi Desktop for PowerBI server. I want a new version every month like the normal version. So if you release only one version this will be solved also. I need the new Visuals and other new functions very bad on premise and don't want to wait every quarter.
