PowerShell in 2017

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…
