PowerShell RC2 is available...

Sort of.

Perhaps, within a couple of hours it will really be available, but right now, all I can point you to is a that says it is available.  It doesn't look like it has been posted (or replicated, as the case might be) as yet.

A draft of the release notes can be found on the , which shows that ADSI functionality made it into this build of PowerShell, but it looks like Remote Registry is still only available via direct .NET calls.

What I need is better options for dealing with text files so that I can easily replicate the following Windows Shell functionality that I frequently use in :

FOR /F "TOKENS=1-4" %%V IN (C:\Temp\Input.TXT) DO ECHO %%V %%W %%X %%Y

I have to play with it some more.  Perhaps I'm just missing something...



As of 11am ET on the Sep 27th, Microsoft has quite a few broken links with regards to PowerShell RC2.
