Windows PowerShell CTP   
Windows PowerShell 2.0 CTP v2
Try Out the Latest CTP Release
The latest Community Technology Preview (version 2) of Windows PowerShell 2.0 was released a few weeks ago. Find out about some of the new and updated features included in this CTP. What new and updated features, you ask? Well, how about updated remoting and Out-GridView cmdlet functionality? Or brand-new cmdlets such as ConvertTo-XML and Get-Random? Even an updated, and much-improved, Graphical PowerShell? Give it a try, we really believe it's worth your time to take a look.

Start with this Introduction to Windows PowerShell 2.0 CTP2 and go from there.

The Scripting Guys are getting ready to head to Orlando. Assuming we get our act together between now and then we'll have at least one (and hopefully two) pretty useful handouts for everyone who attends our "Introduction to Windows PowerShell for VBScripters" instructor-led lab on Tuesday June 10. (There are two sessions, the second one is a repeat of the first.) This is a 3-hour lab we're trying to cram into one hour, so be ready for it to move along. Also, keep in mind that if you already know Windows PowerShell, you might want to skip this one, this really is an introduction. But even if you skip out on the lab, you can still stop by and say hi to the Scripting Guys at the TechNet Magazine booth on Wednesday.

We're looking forward to seeing everyone there!

The Scripting Guys have been pretty busy (as usual), but we haven't been busy building tools. We've left that to Michael Murgolo and Ed Wilson:

Elevation Power Toys. Michael has released this updated version, which makes it simple to run scripts as an administrator in Windows Vista.

PowerShell Scriptomatic. Ed has created a version of the infamous Scriptomatic that allows you to create Windows PowerShell scripts.
