We’ve improved the PowerShell language for defining classes and other user-defined types by using formal syntax and semantics that are similar to other object-oriented programming languages. The goal is to enable developers and IT professionals to embrace PowerShell for a wider range of use cases, simplify development of PowerShell artifacts (such as DSC resources), and accelerate coverage of management surfaces.
Supported scenarios in this release
- Define DSC resources and their associated types by using the PowerShell language
- Define custom types in PowerShell by using familiar object-oriented programming constructs, such as classes, properties, methods, etc.
- Inheritance support with class in PowerShell and class base DSC resource
- Debug types by using the PowerShell language
- Generate and handle exceptions by using formal mechanisms, and at the right level
