PowerShell in 2017

As 2016 winds down what do we have to look forward to from PowerShell?

In January WMF 5.1 should become available for down level clients. This brings PowerShell 5.1 to Windows 7 SP1, 8.1, 2008 R2 SP1, 2012, 2012 R2

Notice that Windows 8 and 2008 aren’t on that list

If you’re using DSC I’d recommend bringing all your DSC servers and target machines up to 5.1

April brings the PowerShell Summit in Bellevue Washington USA and the PowerShell conference in Hannover Germany

Hopefully, Bruce Payette and I will get PowerShell in Action third edition  finished and published

PowerShell 6.0 will continue to be developed and the current alpha builds may turn into betas

Beyond that – who knows – watch this space…

    Let’s skip that hopefully part on the book and “get’er done”. I for one have been looking forward to the new release and have been awaiting each new chapter release. Are you and Bruce revising it for the 5.1 release?

    • It covers version 5.1 – that’s been part of the delay.

      I said hopefully because its been a long and sometimes painful path to get to nearly finished. A number of things have happened over the last 12 months that have seriously cut my writing time. Hopefully these are going to be resolved soon and we can get it finished
