What’s new in PowerGUI 1.9.5

Yesterday we shipped the latest release of PowerGUI – the most popular PowerShell IDE and Admin console out there. 😉 Both components got improved.

Administrative console now has:

  • Ability to automatically check for PowerPack updates when it starts – so if you are a PowerGUI user you can now be sure that all your PowerPacks (PowerGUI addons from PowerGUI library or any other intranet/internet location) are up to date.
  • Improved grid performance – we are now much faster when displaying large datasets (a lot of objects with many properties.)
  • Progress bars – you can use write-progress cmdlet in your PowerPack code to display progress bar for long operations.

Script Editor and Debugger:

  • Also write-progress support – see Alan’s video on how nice it is compared to the one on native blue window. 😉
  • Customizable tab settings: You can have all tabs in the editor replaced with specified number of spaces. On the Tools menu, click Options, then on the Text Editor tab select whether you want to substitute tabs with spaces and the number of spaces.
  • Support the prompt function in the PowerShell Console window: if you have customized your PowerShell prompt – we will now use your custom prompt in our console pane.
  • Collapse regions in the Admin console or the Script Editor: all regions are collapsed when reopening a file or a script.

And we have obviously fixed a bunch of issues reported at our community forums.

Download PowerGUI 1.9.5 from the website today or wait about a week till we turn on automated updates for existing customers.
