PowerShell v6: #8 Release candidate 2

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway


Release candidate 2 for PowerShell v6 is available for download from – https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/releases

One worrying point is the the OpenSSH implementation which is required for remoting to and from Linux systems doesn’t appear to be any where near a release candidate – https://github.com/PowerShell/Win32-OpenSSH/releases. The latest release as of this writing is The steps to install OpenSSH are still too complicated and time consuming. There is an installation script but it doesn’t complete all of the manual steps!

at the moment I’d really recommend that you only install OpenSSH where you need it and don’t consider it as a replacement for WinRM based remoting apart from a few narrow scenarios:

– Windows <-> Linux remoting

– Cross domain remoting

– Remoting to or from a non-domain system

Ducks need to be lined up if PowerShell v6 is going to GA in January 2018
