PowerGUI Visual Studio is now in beta!

Due to popular demand, Adam Driscoll has just released Beta 1 of his PowerGUI Visual Studio (aka PowerGUI VSX) project!

If you missed my blog about this last week and don’t know what this product is, it’s an extension for Visual Studio that adds PowerGUI’s editor with Intellisense, syntax highlighting and snippets for PowerShell script files to Visual Studio!  This can make it much easier to create PowerShell scripts or modules if you’re already working inside Visual Studio.

You can learn all about this great project and download the beta release by going to the PowerGUI VSX page on CodePlex now!

This project requires that the following prerequisites be installed first:

Please share any feedback you have for this release in the comments on this blog, on the CodePlex site itself, or on the PowerGUI forums.

Here’s something really cool for all the developer types out there.  Adam Driscoll, one of the developers here at Quest Software, is working on an extension for Visual Studio 2010 that integrates PowerGUI Script Editor functionality into the Visual Studio 2010 IDE!  It’s not released yet, but you can learn more about it on the PowerGUI VSX site on CodePlex.  Here’s a teaser screenshot to whet your tastebuds:

I’d love to hear your feedback on this, so please leave comments and let me know if this is of interest to you or not.
