Crescendo Preview 2

For all of you who joined our May/2021 Usergroup Meeting, Crescendo can PowerShellize your shell-world by surrounding Powershell-style behavior around native commands. This makes sense in many ways and Microsoft is continuing its work on this module. Read updates on the new Preview-2 here.

DSC is shipped as a Module now

Desired State Configuration has been packaged with Powershell until now. With version 2.0.5, DSC will no longer be part or PowerShell 7. As a standalone module, module development gets easier and people can choose to install in on their machines. Read more about its future here.

Review of our Usergroup Meeting May 11

I created an article with all the demos and files here, on the Expertslive page you find a german summary with screenshots and links.

VS-Code 1.56.2

Visual Studio Code, our most-loved editor has got a bunch of new enhancements. Split Terminals, visible Breakpoints in Debugging, Math support in Markdown cells and much more made it into this release. Update and enjoy the new version, and read the releasenotes here.

I hope you found something that helps you with your PowerShell journey! ´till next week.
