      Hi everyone,

      With PowerShell 6.0, we’ve already begun updating our versioning system to be more descriptive. Right now, PSVersion returns 6.0.0-alpha as a System.Management.Automation.SemanticVersion object (with Major, Minor, Patch, and Label properties), and we’ve also added a GitCommitId property to PSVersionTable that matches perfectly with tags on GitHub: https://github.com/powershell/powershell/tags

      Still, we can definitely continue to improve the semantic version implementation. You can track (and contribute to!) the discussion on these improvements here: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/2354

      Thanks,
      Joey

      Regression: 1. Open a script file in PowerShell ISE.
      2. Open up the same script file in another editor i.e. notepad++ or Microsoft Visual Studio
      3. Make a change to the script file in the other editor and save it.
      4. Return to PowerShell ISE, it does not warn you that the script file has been changed else where and it does not re-load the script file into the ISE window.
      5. Make a change…

        Frequency: Always Happens
        Regression: Yes, this happens in all previous versions

        [Redirected from http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverpowershell/thread/f70168bf-f575-47c7-b889-3c38dd6a776a]
        I guess the lack of out-of-the-box support for the open protocol, such as SSH and SFTP in Windows shells is one the main reason the PHP, Ruby and Python developers don't feel nativity in Windows ecosystem.

        Windows Azure supports SSH, so what's stopping Windows PowerShell and Command Prompt teams to implement these proven and massively adopted protocols in their commands…
