Microsoft releases PowerShell 3.0 CTP for Windows

Microsoft has made available for download Windows Management Framework 3.0 CTP1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

The Windows Management Framework 3.0 CTP1 includes updated versions of Windows PowerShell, WMI, WinRM and Windows PowerShell Web Service.

Features in Windows PowerShell 3.0 include:
Workflows: Workflows that run long-running activities (in sequence or in parallel) to perform complex, larger management tasks, such as multi-machine application provisioning. Using the Windows Workflow Foundation at the command line, Windows PowerShell workflows are repeatable, parallelizable, interruptible, and recoverable.

Robust Sessions: Robust sessions that automatically recover from network failures and interruptions and allow you to disconnect from the session, shut down the computer, and reconnect from a different computer without interrupting the task.

Scheduled Jobs: Scheduled jobs that run regularly or in response to an event.

Delegated Administration: Commands that can be executed with a delegated set of credentials so users with limited permissions can run critical jobs

Simplified Language Syntax: Simplified language syntax that make commands and scripts look a lot less like code and a lot more like natural language.

Cmdlet Discovery: Improved cmdlet discovery and automatic module loading that make it easier to find and run any of the cmdlets installed on your computer.

Show-Command: Show-Command, a cmdlet and ISE Add-On that helps users find the right cmdlet, view its parameters in a dialog box, and run it.
