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…
