PowerShell SDK Reference Assemblies Available via NuGet.org

 

The PowerShell team is pleased to announce that the references assemblies for PowerShell versions 3, 4, and 5 are now available as packages on NuGet.org. Previously, PowerShell SDK reference assemblies were part of the Microsoft Windows Platform SDK for the specific release of Windows. Placing these assemblies on NuGet.org as packages associated with the version of PowerShell will greatly ease the process for finding the appropriate assemblies. By making packages available from PowerShell version 3, those that create applications spanning multiple versions of PowerShell will be much easier. 

The available packages are:
