PowerShell Community Extensions 1.1 Ships

Some time  ago, a number of PowerShell fans created the PowerShell Community Extensions project up at Codeplex. This provides a number of useful features and is part of my default install!

The team have created a new version, V1.1 which is now available for download. Version 1.1 adds a  lot of new and enhanced features.

New cmdlets include:

  • Get-FileVersionInfo
  • Get-PEHeader
  • Resolve-Assembly
  • Test-Assembly
  • Ping-Host
  • Resolve-Host
  • Select-Xml
  • Write-BZip2
  • Write-GZip
  • Write-Tar
  • Write-Zip

The biggest new features are the two new providers, including an  Active Directory provider that works. COOL!!!

If you work with PowerShell, you should be running these extensions.
