    Why isn't this supported? MySQL is a leading SQL standard - I had assumed all major SQL databases would work with direct query. My initial attempt was with postgres which supports everything standard SQL supports. So does MariaDB, and a dozen others. A SQL query is just that, isn't it? Disregarding extended features.

    BTW, would you happen to read this, support for wonderware historian other time series or key value database systems like inquest or redis would be fantastic. Our primary use for power bi is combining data from climate system and sensor logs, QC databases and verification of some sensor systems that are accessible via REST API. All of our sensor logs are stored in various flavours of time series databases and at the moment our best solution is to do a periodical export of our logs to CSV, but if we would keep all data points there would be a 15 second interval between records for all data, which is far too rich, so an intermediate script prunes the data as a stop gap measure. Supporting time series dbs could reduce a lot of overhead in some situations.

    Please give the option to change back to dark layout. The new theme is too bright and I don't like change. It's very upsetting. No self respecting IDE comes without a dark theme, it should be like that for all software.

    I know you guys can do it, look at VS Code, it looks spectacular. It's actually my go to code editor, which is high praise coming from a stubborn linux user. Please, make power bi great again. I'm stuck with the may update right now.
