PSResourceGet Release Candidate is Now Available

Sydney Smith

Microsoft.PowerShell.PSResourceGet is a continuation of the PowerShellGet 3.0 project. The release candidate of this module under the new name is now available on the PowerShell Gallery. This release contains a number of bug fixes. This release is considered “go live” meaning that it is a fully supported release and expected to be of GA quality. After this release we don’t expect to make any changes before we make the module “Generally Available (GA)”. Please test out this module and report any issues so that we can resolve any blocking scenarios before this module becomes GA. Once this module becomes GA we will continue work with both bug patches and new feature releases.
