Today at the keynote at ITForum in Barcelona, we announced the official release of Windows PowerShell 1.0!  

For those of you unfamiliar with Windows PowerShell, it is a best of breed next-generation commandline shell designed from the ground up to be flexible and powerful while still remaining easy to use. Many thanks go to our friends at for coming all the way to Barcelona to show how they're using Windows PowerShell in production today for the mission critical task of maintaining and managing the second busiest website in the world.

Finally, thanks to each and every one of you in the Windows PowerShell community! We've been extremely grateful and appreciative of the high level of community support and fantastic feedback we've received throughout the time we've been developing PowerShell. With your help, we've created the best shell experience ever for the Windows platform. We're confident you'll be very pleased with the result!

Thanks again and Enjoy!

Leonard Chung, Jeffrey Snover, and Arul Kumaravel on behalf of the PowerShell Team

Update:  PowerShell is also available for Vista-RC1 and Windows Server Code Name "Longhorn" IDS 5600. Please visit:
