      We are changing the status here back to “Working on it”, as we are not yet done with all that we want to do here, and as many of you have pointed this out. We apologize for prematurely changing the status to done, please keep the feedback coming.

      The video on https://myignite.microsoft.com/videos/53861 (focusing on large lists at 42 minutes and 25 seconds) describes some of the changes that we delivered back in the second half of 2017:
      - Modern UI now has a lot of support for adding indexes to large lists and libraries on the fly, reducing the number of throttling errors experienced by our users, and some new UI for browsing through items in large lists with our paging model
      - SharePoint runs predictive indexing jobs to automatically add indexes as lists get larger based on your view definitions, and updates these indexes when you add/update your views…

      SharePoint is heading backwards in so many ways. As another contributor said, it's driving business away from SPO - but then, maybe that's what Microsoft want. SharePoint will become a simple (and small) file store). Lots of publicity re huge amounts of storage space, millions of items in lists etc. - except it's effectively unusable.
      What makes this limit really unusable is that you cannot create / amend indexed fields. How useless is that!

      Or am I being cynical?
