Microsoft Releases Windows PowerShell RC2

Windows PowerShell 1.0 Release Candidate 2 is Microsoft’s Next-Generation task-based command line shell and scripting language for system administration that provides comprehensive control and automation for Windows desktops and servers.
Key PowerShell Features:
    • One hundred and twenty nine standard utilities (called "cmdlets") for completing common system administration tasks such as working with the registry, services, processes, Windows Management Instrumentation, event logs, etc..
    • Intuitive, task-based scripting language and support for existing scripts and command line tools..
    • Designed for consistency so all tools and system data stores follow a common syntax, common naming conventions and information can be easily shared/piped between tools.
    • Simplified command-based navigation of the operating system (including drives, startup files, and registry).
    • Powerful object manipulation capabilities (objects can be directly manipulated or pipelined to other tools or databases).
    • Designed for extensibility so that independent software vendors and enterprise developers can easily build custom tools and utilities to administer their software.
