What's New in PowerShell Version 3 - Module 1 Hi. This is Robert Cain. Welcome to What's new in PowerShell Version 3. This is module 1 of 2. In this module, we're going to be taking a look at the new Integrated Scripting Environment that was delivered with PowerShell Version 3. We'll then look at some of the language enhancements, things to make your life easier. We'll look at some of the major commandlet and provider changes. And then finally, we'll look at some other enhancements that were made with PowerShell, things such as online help. In the next module, we're taking an in depth look at workflow and then doing an overview on PowerShell Web Access and Management OData Web Services. We'll begin our first section by taking a look at the new integrated scripting environment. Yes, the long awaited IntelliSense is finally here. There's also been some changes to the way the command pane works. We'll then take a look at a few other new features such as snippets and collapsible regions. After we look at the Integrated Scripting Environment, we'll take a look at some of the language improvements that came with PowerShell Version 3. Some nice improvements to where-object, a new alias for select-string, two new comparison operators -in and -notin and finally, ordered hashtables.
