Released: Windows PowerShell 2.0 CTP

Posted by Bharat Suneja at 10:00 AM
For all those eagerly awaiting developments on the shell front, Microsoft has released a Community Technology Preview (CTP) of Windows PowerShell 2.0.

PowerShell 2.0 boasts some interesting (many frequently requested) features, including:
- remoting (ability to execute commands on remote computers)
- "a very early alpha version" of the Graphical PowerShell utility
- background PowerShell jobs that run without interaction with the console (including ability to trigger/run these on remote computers)
- ability to write your own commandlets in PowerShell rather than having to use compiled VB.NET or C# code
- 24 new commandlets, improved WMI and ADSI support, and quite a few other features listed in "What's New in CTP of PowerShell 2.0" on the PowerShell team blog.

The Graphical PowerShell requires .Net Framework v3.0.

Download the Windows PowerShell 2.0 CTP from here, and don't rush to install it on your production Exchange Server 2007 servers just yet - it's still a beta product.

The PowerShell V2 CTP is great but it 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.
