The most popular free PowerShell tool has just got even better! 🙂 We have released version 1.9.6 of PowerGUI, and both the script IDE and the admin console got nice additions.
The script editor and debugger now has automated recovery. Basically we automatically save your work in our temporary files like Microsoft Office does (the frequency can by set in Options) and if for some reason you experience a crash or accidentally pull the plug from the wall or your kid presses that shutdown button – next time you start the editor your scripts will all be there!
In administrative console, we have improved custom deployment scenario – in which you want to deploy to your end users PowerGUI with specific set of PowerPacks and custom rebranded welcome screen. Now in addition to the silent install options, PowerGUI’s
redirections.xml file (located for each user in
%appdata%\Quest Software\PowerGUI) can contain paths (including UNC) to the welcome page (in MHT format) and any number of PowerPacks.
And obviously there is a significant number of smaller improvements and fixes for the issues reported by you on the community forums.
Download the new release now from the web site or wait for about a week till we push it through autoupdate.
