I just got a message: “No updates in more than 10 weeks – what’s going on?”
Given the frequency of past updates, this is indeed unusual. It shows, however, that the dust settles, and all major features and the new PSSharper functionality are working well – no immediate pressure to rush out updates.
So what are we doing, and what can you expect?
What we are working on…
Thank you for your many feature requests! Lots of them are implemented already, and some are being implemented right now.
For example, due to popular request, we are adding version numbers for the EXEs you can create from your PowerShell code, are working on a project explorer and more PSSharper magic. Yet we decided to not rush out frequent updates at this time. Instead, we are taking extra time for testing and ground works. Ultimately, we are reseaerching to find the best way to enable ISESteroids inside of VSCode.
What we currently do: PowerShell Conference EU
Plus we currently invest a lot of time and resources into planning the one and only PowerShell Conference EU (www.psconf.eu) which is just a couple months away, making sure that this event will be a great experience for everyone attending.
Psconf.eu is a truely unique PowerShell extravaganza, with 45 speakers including PowerShell inventor Jeffrey Snover and six of his team, and 19 Microsoft MVPs. Take a look at the 3-day agenda with its 90 sessions! If you’d like to learn more, click here: http://www.powershellmagazine.com/2017/02/02/powershell-conference-eu-2017-speakers-and-sessions/. And if you can’t come, do us a favor and let others know.
18-Months Guarantee: Free Updates and Upgrades
So there are no updates planned for the coming weeks, but there will be, and you’re always safe: all updates are always free, no maintenance or extra cost. And even though all new features and investments continue to go into version 2.0, should there be a version 3.0 anytime soon, it’s most likely free for you as well. ISESteroids comes with its 18-months-guarantee, so any new major version released within 18 months of your license purchase is also guaranteed to be free.
Are you coming, too?
I am now returning to organizing the psconf.eu event. We just ordered 5000 stickers for the delegates, picked a great food buffet for the free evening event, and got the new “Ask the Experts” designated areas organized. It’s going to be a great three days of quality time among fellow PowerShell passionates – are you coming, too?
See you in May in Hannover!
