Databars are not shown in Internet Explorer

There seems to be a bug in the Microsoft library that is used to draw the legend. Bug report has been issued to MS. In the meantime, you can switch off the legend from settings > behaviour > legend, or you can use different browser.

Why can't I find the latest version from AppSource?

After release, it will take two additional weeks for the custom visual to hit the Microsoft production system. This means that you can download the latest version from the AppSource, but when you add the visual to report, Power BI will actually use the older version.

You can find the release date from release notes. Visual will be available generally two weeks after that.
