    Problem Description:
    I would like that Get-Member cmdlet supports Online parameter in V3 (similar to Get-Help in V2):

    Get-Process | Get-Member -Online

    That command would open the .NET Framework page in MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.diagnostics.process.aspx).

    dir | Get-Member -Online

    That command would open the .NET Framework pages in MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.io.fileinfo.aspx and http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.io.directoryinfo.aspx).

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

      Problem Description:
      Start-Transcript logs input and output. This creates huge log files.
      There should be a switch that enables Start-Transcript to only log the inputs and omit the outputs. Optionally, there could be an indicator whether a command completed successfully, was aborted or raised an exception.

      • Support text-oriented configuration management

        ... in a folder at C:\config containing text files (and perhaps a similar folder in the user's home directory). Changing those text files would directly apply changes to Windows settings. Services could read those files directly or use a Windows text-based configuration management API.

        Text-oriented configuration has many advantages: it makes devops-style workflows much more simple, entire server configurations could be versioned in git or svn along with the apps they host, spinning up new servers would be much simpler, and tools like Chef and Puppet would integrate far more smoothly and simply with Windows.

        I suggest this as a…

        • PowerShell Remoting using private key authentication

          Enable PowerShell Remoting login using private key authentication similar to the SSH protocol. Entering passwords all the time the log into remote PowerShell is tedious. Being able to use local secure private key to log into many cloud server instances would ease the process of creating new remote sessions.

          • Enable Kerberos pass-trough for nested WinRM sessions

            A second or third hop WinRM session should support the usage of the primary session's ticket if Kerberos delegation is enabled for WinRM. CredSSP is not always wanted or might be limited due to security policies

            • Backwards Compatibility for cmdlets

              All new cmdlets only seem to support 2012+ however for those of us with a mixed estate means we have to use other methods for migrations than we do for live servers and would be really good if tools were backwards compatible.. rather than having to develop our own or rely on 3rd party alternatives.

                • Migrate Sconfig.vbs to PowerShell

                  With all Microsoft Tools going to PowerShell, I think it would be better for this config tool to be a PowerShell rather than VB Script.

                    • Powershell Core should have a nuget package for release

                      It would be awesome if powershell core was released as a package on nuget.org as well as the regular means.

                      The reason for this is build systems like cake build can have tools referenced via nuget packages and will pull them down as part of the build.

                      • Bug: Installing WMF4.0 then WMF5.0 on Win7 SP1

                        Hello,
                        I understand that on Windows 7 SP1-Machines we have to install WMF 4.0 before upgrading to WMF 5.0.
                        On all our Windows 7 machines, before installing WMF 4.0 KB2819745, a sample output for Path Environmental Variable, getting with [Environment]::GetEnvironmentVariable(“Path”), looks like this:
                        C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\
                        After installing WMF 4.0 KB2819745, it looks like this:
                        C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;
                        There is a multiple path to the Powershell.exe.
                        After installing KB3134760 to upgrade to WMF 5.0, it’s getting even worse as path-variable looks like this:
                        C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;
                        Is this a known issue?
                        Thanks in advance
                        Norbert

                        • Make Cmdlets pick up app.config, especially binding redirects

                          I can't believe this hasn't been resolved already.

                          Surely adding assemblies to the GAC and mofiying machine.config is not a great solution.
