PowerShell 2.0 CTP


The PowerShell V2 CTP is not for everyone. You should read this PowerShell Team blog entry ( http://blogs.msdn.com/powershell/archive/2007/11/02/ctp-watch-this-space.aspx ) to find out what it is and what it isn't and then make an informed decision before installing the CTP.


Windows PowerShell 2.0 CTP is out.  View the PowerShell team blog entry here.

As a Microsoft MVP, I had the chance to try out earlier CTP bits, and I like what I saw, in particular:

  • PowerShell Remoting
  • Background Jobs

For those also wanting to write scripts, yet use something other than Notepad, you may be pleased that there is a script editor bundled now.  It is still a very early release though.  For other free options, check out PowerGUI, which has a script editor as well.
