Mi­crosoft adds Pow­erShell Core to its own repos­i­tory

OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

Mi­crosoft has just launched Pow­erShell Core 6.0 al­pha on its own Pack­ages repos­i­tory. All the Pow­erShell Core re­leases were pre­vi­ously pub­lished on the GitHub repos­i­tory, but the new change has made its in­stal­la­tion much eas­ier. How­ever, the com­pany will con­tinue to sup­port both GitHub and its own repos­i­tory in the fu­ture.

To in­stall the lat­est Pow­erShell

Core al­pha ver­sion, you need to regis­ter on Mi­crosoft’s repos­i­tory as a su­pe­ruser. You can up­date and in­stall the frame­work us­ing a ter­mi­nal com­mand af­ter gain­ing su­per-user ac­cess.

Depend­ing upon the Linux dis­tri­bu­tion, you need to run the ‘sudo apt-get in­stall pow­ershell’ or ‘sudo yum up­date pow­ershell’ com­mand to up­date the Pow­erShell Core pack­age on your sys­tem.

It seems that Mi­crosoft is tak­ing ex­tra ef­forts to im­prove the ex­pe­ri­ence of Pow­erShell on Linux. The Red­mond com­pany wants to work closely with the com­mu­nity to en­hance the ex­pe­ri­ence. Ad­di­tion­ally, it is seek­ing feed­back and sugges­tions from the open source com­mu­nity to im­prove its ap­proach for Pow­erShell Core.

Years af­ter its ex­clu­sive avail­abil­ity on the Win­dows plat­form, Mi­crosoft brought Pow­erShell to the Linux world last Au­gust. The task au­to­ma­tion and con­fig­u­ra­tion man­age­ment frame­work has been made avail­able as an open source project by the soft­ware giant and is com­pat­i­ble with a wide range of Linux dis­tri­bu­tions such as Cen­tOS, Red Hat En­ter­prise Linux and Ubuntu.
