PSCX 2.0

I have mentioned  PowerShell Community Extensions many times over the last few years. I have found them a very useful set of utilities to extend the basic PowerShell install. With PowerShell v2 there was an irritation that a few of the cmdlets

Get-Random
Start-Process
Select-Xml

overrode the PowerShell v2 cmdlets of the same name.

That has been fixed with the PSCX v2 beta that is available from http://pscx.codeplex.com/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=39405. It is module based so use it on PowerShell 2. It is a simple zip file, so download it, unblock it and unzip it to your module path.

It loads using import-module and looks to be full of goodies.  The PSCX guys have done a good job with this. Time to give it a whirl and see how it works.
