Windows Management Framework 5.0 Preview May 2014 Released

It has been a great week at Microsoft TechEd North America, many sessions including PowerShell code. It is a great time to be involved with PowerShell as Microsoft definitely has a very strong focus on this product. As announced by Jeffrey Snover the new preview version has become available this week. It is available for download here:

Most notable new features in this release are the inclusion of PowerShellGet and the improvements on DSC, many of which were already showcased at TechEd this week. Two important things to note before you get started with PowerShell 5 and Windows Management Framework 5.0 are as follows:

  • First uninstall any previous versions of the WMF preview
  • Windows Management Framework 5.0 will only install on Windows 8.1 or Server 2012R2

The PowerShell Team has written excellent blog posts on the preview versions they are available here:
