When Will PowerShell V2 Ship?

By far, the most frequently asked question at TechEd 2008 was, “When will PowerShell V2 Ship?”.  We are expressly prohibited from answering that question and I know that that can be frustrating.  I can say this:



We are now feature complete with V2.  History has shown that when we reach this stage of development, it takes us a year, plus or minus a quarter, before it is generally available.


Let me be quick to add that past performance is NOT an guarantee of future performance.  At the end of the day, we have an extensive quality process and the community lets us know when it is ready to ship.


The second most frequently asked question was, “When is the next CTP?”.  We have not booked a plan for that yet.  That said, people have observed that we have often tried to coordinate important things with IT Forum in Nov.


Cheers!
