A few announcements from the PowerShell Team that I’m catching up on.

 

The Microsoft.PowerShell.Archive module is now open source

The archive module was introduced in WMF 5.0. Its now available on the PowerShell Gallery for installation on WMF 4.0. Any future updates will be through the gallery.

 

The version in the gallery is 1.0.1.0 as opposed to 1.0.0.0 that ships with WMF 5.0

 

You can now view the contents of files directly in the PowerShell gallery

A DSC toolkit for working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) is now available
