What a fun time to be working with PowerShell!
Just this weekend I got my hands on the beta of PowerShell Plus and I started looking at the new PowerShell Community site that soft-launches tomorrow. Last Monday PowerGUI 1.0.11 was released with the fantastic PowerGUI Script Editor. On Friday version 1.0.5 of the Quest AD Cmdlets was released. The Virtual PowerShell User Group hosted their inaugural meeting earlier this month (if you missed this you can get the recorded video here). Local user groups are starting to talk about PowerShell and spread the good word. PowerShell Analyzer 1.0 is about a week away. Next month Jeffrey Snover will be presenting new features in PowerShell 2.0 at TechEd IT Forum 2007 in Barcelona (I hope there will be a webcast for that session!). VMWare is providing a technology preview of their ESX server snapin to testers soon. The library of PowerShell books that are available keeps growing. More and more Microsoft and third-party products are releasing with their own PowerShell snapins. Add to that PowerGadgets, PowerShell Community Extensions, the PowerScripting Podcast, several active community sites, a busy newsgroup, lots of webcasts, many other PowerShell projects on CodePlex and likely a bunch of things I’m not able to think of right now and you can’t help but feel that it really is a great time to be a Poshoholic! Are you on the train yet?
