We would like to give a huge THANK YOU to all of you who used the WMF 5.0 Production Preview and provided us with feedback.
Today, we have republished the Windows Management Framework (WMF) 5.0 RTM packages for Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows 2008 R2 SP1, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7 SP1 to Microsoft Download Center. These packages replace previously released WMF 5.0 RTM packages and WMF 5.0 Production Preview packages.
We’re excited to announce Windows Management Framework 5.0 Production Preview, a new package introducing new and exciting management technologies, is now available for download on the Microsoft Download Center!
As announced earlier, WMF 5.0 Production Preview differs from older previews of WMF 5.0 in the following ways:
- It is fully supported until 90 days after WMF 5.0 RTM.
In the next few weeks (August 2015) we will be releasing a supported “Production Preview” of Windows Management Framework (WMF) 5.0. Later, in Q4 of 2015, you should be able to download the RTM version of WMF 5.0.
We’re excited to announce Windows Management Framework 5.0 Preview April 2015, a new package introducing new and
exciting management technologies, is now available for download on the Microsoft Download Center!
This Windows Management Framework (WMF) preview includes everything from WMF 5.0 Preview February 2015 plus some new features.
We are proud to announce that the entire DSC Resource Kit has been open-sourced on GitHub. This means that we will be iterating and releasing these DSC resources quicker than ever before. It also means that we will be collaborating more openly with the community by accepting GitHub pull requests into our code.
Community feedback is an integral part of any software development cycle. That’s why we continue to release new preview versions of Windows Management Framework (WMF) 5.0: so that we can hear about and fix real-world problems before they ship with the next version of Windows.
