Thanks everyone for your feedback/votes!
We’re actively working on this new connector. You can find an early demo in the recording of the Power Query session at the Microsoft Business Applications Summit: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/businessapplicationssummit/video/BAS2018-2167
Please stay tuned to the Power BI blog for further announcements.
I highly appreciate the efforts planned this time. I will make recommendations at an early stage. Please connect to PDF data which we have difficulty to capture every year. I believe that developers will be able to recognize the specific tasks to be addressed by concrete examples. Come and sample it as a target for TEST, please realize the connection that everyone praises. http://www.keinet.ne.jp/rank/18/ds04.pdf
I routinely import PDF data on Excel's PowerQuery and are working on data editing. From my work experience, the easiest way to edit data is to prepare a file converted to HTML with Adobe Acrobat DC's export function and import it via the web connection route. The problem is that it is difficult to automate editing after import. After that, it will be explained assuming editing PDF table. I do not know clearly the trigger, but because the fields are joined and split, and the data decomposition of the join columns is involved. Furthermore, the pattern of joining and splitting field columns also varies. While looking at the state, you will be disassembling. This is presumed to depend on how the table conversion function of PDF before importing is specified. We think that it is necessary to request Adobe to output table data without unintended coupling / division which is different from display.
In order to facilitate reuse of queries and custom functions, we can now utilize ODC technology in Excel. PowerBI, on the other hand, uses a mechanism to incorporate extended connectors individually, so that we can start custom functions with the same interface as standard functions. I'm worried that Excel and PowerBI are beginning to take different measures, and I would like the development team to consider synchronizing both systems. In PowerBI, it is desirable to make use of ODC and also to refer to and use extended functions in Excel.
We’re actively working on adding IntelliSense support for M authoring in the Advanced Query Editor, Formula Bar and Custom Column dialog. Expect to see these capabilities in one of our next few monthly updates, hopefully before the end of 2016. : )

Thanks for the suggestions! I’ve split out the other cloud storage options into separate ideas for people to vote on.
