    Tableau Public is now running 9.0!

    Daniel Hom

      On behalf of the Tableau Public team, welcome to the new Tableau Public: a fully updated website, also running on Tableau 9.0! You can see the new site here, or update to the new Tableau Desktop Public Edition 9.0 here.


      Tableau Public has actually been running many 9.0 features for the past few months, such as map geographic search, a more natural map interface and smooth tooltips. The community response has been great, and we're happy to release these features early.


      The new website has also allowed us to redesign the viz toolbar and move the experience of publishing workbooks to the web. There's more to come with the website too, including tighter integration when publishing a viz or sharing it with others.


      If you haven't checked out all the 9.0 new features, you can do that here: http://www.tableau.com/new-features/9.0


      Also, check out our launch blog post from Tableau Public's Director of Product Marketing Ben Jones: https://public.tableau.com/s/blog/2015/04/announcing-launch-tableau-public-90


      Starting today, this means our Tableau Public home is permanently at http://public.tableau.com and our old website at http://public.tableausoftware.com is going away. If you're using Tableau Desktop 8.2.3 or earlier, you might encounter an error either signing in to Tableau Public or opening workbooks. If you do, updating to Tableau Desktop 9.0 will fix that.


      Tableau 9.0 and Tableau Public's new website are foundations for what we will be doing more of in the future. With the new site specifically, we wanted to lay the groundwork for building a true community of data enthusiasts and data storytellers. That's why you see revamped author profiles, an actual search engine and a bigger emphasis on authors and their amazing content. And this is just the start.


      Let us know what you think, and stay tuned!
