PowerShell v7 preview 6

PowerShell v7 preview 6 has arrived – https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/releases

Its the last preview, as the Release candidate should appear next month, so this version is a good indication of what’ll be available in PowerShell v7.

Test-Connection finally works properly and is usable

Some graphical based cmdlets are now available

Out-GridView

Show-Command

Get-Help –ShowWindow

A number of other cmdlets return:

Get-Counter

Get- , Set-Clipboard  (now cross platform)

Out-Printer

Update-List

Clear-RecycleBin

Some of these are Windows only as the features don’t exist on other platforms

New experimental features include the null-conditional operators and using non-compatible Windows PowerShell modules in PowerShell core (no more WindowsCompatibility module)

I’ll look at some these in more depth in future posts.

I’ll try and put together a summary of all the major changes between PowerShell v6.2 and v7
