Announcing the Public Preview of automatic replica synchronization for Dataset Scale-Out

We are excited to announce that we have finalized Dataset Scale-Out configuration APIs and completed the replica synchronization feature. Specifically, you no longer need to enable Scale-Out at the workspace level by using a burdensome XMLA request. The XMLA command is deprecated and will no longer work. You can now enable Scale-Out on a dataset-by-dataset basis using the Power BI REST API for datasets. You also no longer need to synchronize read-only replicas manually if you want to take advantage of automatic replica synchronization. Automatic replica synchronization is enabled by default.
