PowerShell v6

Tried PowerShell v6 yet?

Its the open sourced latest version of PowerShell – runs on Windows, Linux (various flavours) and MacOS

Its available from – https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell

Before you get too excited there’s a few things you need to remember:

– its ALPHA code. That means its still under development and subject to change

– its not production ready

– it only provides the core parts of PowerShell – for instance all the CDXML modules aren’t available

– it uses .NET Core rather than  full .NET  – it doesn’t have the GUI libraries for instance

– it does install side by side with out of the box PowerShell (on later versions of Windows only)

– it does enable remoting between Windows and Linux using SSH

Its worth testing for 2 reasons. First you can see what’s happening with PowerShell and the changes that are coming. Secondly, you can feed back directly to the project and directly influence the future of PowerShell
