Microsoft has released Windows PowerShell 7.5.0 Preview 1. PowerShell is an automation command-line tool preinstalled in Windows and is cross-platform. Since this is a preview release, we recommend not using it in production environments.

PowerShell 7.5 will likely release several preview versions, and perhaps 2 Release Candidates before finally releasing the stable version. The stable version of PowerShell 7.5 is likely to be announced somewhere in November, as history dictates.

PowerShell 7.5 Preview 1 has a long list of updates and features that you can read here.

PowerShell 7.5 is a regular release and not an LTS release. Below are the major changes that can be observed in this update:

  • Changed the New-FileCatalog -CatalogVersion default to 2.
  • Changed Test-FileCatalog to use File.OpenRead to better handle the case where the file is being used.
  • The following parameters have been improved:
    • The argument completerfor has been added-VersionSet-StrictMode
    • Fixed copy item history so that it only shows “completed” when all files have been copied
