A few announcements from the PowerShell Team that I’m catching up on.
The Microsoft.PowerShell.Archive module is now open source
The archive module was introduced in WMF 5.0. Its now available on the PowerShell Gallery for installation on WMF 4.0. Any future updates will be through the gallery. The version in the gallery is 18.104.22.168 as opposed to 22.214.171.124 that ships with WMF 5.0
You can now view the contents of files directly in the PowerShell gallery
A DSC toolkit for working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) is now available
WMF 5.1 will become available when Windows Server 2016 ships
WMF 5.1 will contain the changes and bug fixes introduced since WMF 5.0 shipped. Many of these have been available on Windows Insider preview builds
