So it looks like the High King of PowerShell has spoken over at TechED Europe today and answered the question that sits on every child’s lips in the back of a moving car: “Are we there yet?”
“Nope. Not Yet.”
“So when, dad?”
Dmitry Sotnikov (who’s not my dad, btw) of PowerGUI fame broke the news to the web at large, and I’m just shamelessly grabbing the HTML directly from his post:
- December 2008 - CTP 3 (Community Technology Preview) or Beta 1 if it meets the internal criteria and all names/features are finalized.
- RTM - end of 2009/early 2010 as part of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
- RTM for XP, 2003, Vista, and 2008 - as a downloadable package (with new WinRM bundled in there) only a few months later.
