Release Status

PSCX 3.2.0 Production Released

PSCX 3.2.0 is our primary release targeting PowerShell 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0. We've made the jump to .NET 4.0 and are using PowerShell 3.0 specific features. If you need PowerShell 2.0 support use PSCX 2.1 Production. PSCX 3.2.0 is deployed via a MSI file. You can download PSCX 3.2,0 from https://pscx.codeplex.com/releases/view/133199. For more information on this release, check out my blog post on PSCX 3.2.0 http://bit.ly/pscx320.

PSCX 2.1 Production Released

PSCX 2.1 addresses a number of defects found in the 2.0.0.x releases as well as adding support for Windows PowerShell 3.0. PSCX 2.1 is xcopy deployed via a ZIP file. Do not forget to unblock the ZIP file before extracting the contents. You can download PSCX 2.1 from http://pscx.codeplex.com/releases/view/96848.

Both of these releases of PSCX support execution in an "AllSigned" execution policy environment. We were also able to obtain an extended validation code signing certificate to allow the PSCX 3.0 MSI file to play nicely with the Windows 8 SmartScreen filter. We would like to thank the folks at DigiCert for donating the required code signing certificates to this project. Not only did they donate the certs but were quite helpful in supporting me getting up and running quickly - even when that meant talking to a support person at midnight. :-)
