Versioning of this module

This first preview of PSResourceGet is a continuation of the previous 21 previews of PowerShellGet 3.0. We versioned this first preview as 0.5.22-beta22. When determing this version we took into consideration semantic versioning (semver), how PowerShell does versioning, versioning patterns we were inheriting from PowerShellGet, and how to best communicate the state of the module. We want PSResourceGet go GA with a 1.0.0 release and follow semver versioning from there. In the meantime we wanted to reflect that this release is nearing RC state and is the continuation of previous 21 previews. To accomplish both of these goals we comprimised on a version of 0.5.22-beta22.

Roadmap to GA

We expect this release to ship in the next preview of PowerShell 7.4. Given that we are shipping in PowerShell 7.4 we intend to GA before the GA of PowerShell 7.4 which is targeted for this fall. The current plan is to have one more preview release of PSResourceGet and then release a release candidate (RC). From there we will evaluate readiness for GA.

Next Steps for PowerShellGet

The module formally known as CompatPowerShellGet will now ship as PowerShellGet v3. This module serves as a compatibility layer to use v2 syntax which calls PSResourceGet as the engine. The next preview of PowerShellGet v3 will be this compatibility layer, and take a dependency on PSResourceGet.

How to give feedback and Get Support

We cannot overstate how critical user feedback is at this stage in the development of the module. Feedback from preview releases help inform design decisions without incurring a breaking change once generally available and used in production.

In order to help us to make key decisions around the behavior of the module please give us feedback by opening issues in our GitHub repository.
