Release Notes

What's New in PSCX 3.2.0
October 23, 2014
  • New Edit-File cmdlet that edits a file in-place using regular expressions
and corresponding replacement strings. The cmdlet attempts to determine
the original encoding of the file and preserve that encoding.
  • Fixed issue with the nested FileSystem module. It's format data had to be
updated to handle wider column output from Get-ChildItem now that WMF 5.0
supports creating symbolic links, hard links, etc.
  • Import-VisualStudioVars has been updated to handle VS 14 CTP by allowing you
to specify version number 140. This should work with future versions of VS.
  • The hex accelerator type was added in a previous release but was not
added to PowerShell's type accelerators. The accelerator is now loaded
by the Pscx.Utility nested module. You can now convert a decimal number
to hex easily e.g. hex32 gives 0x20.
  • Read-Archive has been changed to output individual ArchiveEntry objects
instead of a single collection object. This allows you to filter which
items are extracted e.g.:

Read-Archive foo.zip | Where Name -match \.txt | Expand-Archive -Out c:\temp
  • Expand-Archive now implements the PassThru parameter allowing functionality
such as:

Expand-Archive foo.zip -Output c:\temp -PassThru | Move-Item -Dest c:\done
  • Fixed documentation bug with Set-LocationEx. CD_EchoNewLocation was
incorrectly specified as CD/EchoNewLocation.
  • Changed the default value of CD_EchoNewLocation to False as the use of
Write-Host to display the new CD location offends some folks. You can
turn it back by putting this in your profile (or set the value in your
Pscx.UserPreferences.ps1 file):

$Pscx:Preferences.CD_EchoNewLocation = $true
  • Fixed issue 35430 - Invoke-BatchFile messes up encoding on non-English
systems.
  • Fixed issue 355537 - Default format information missing for
Pscx.Commands.Modules.Utility.ExecutionTimeInfo.
  • Issues 35314 and 35256 indicate some bugs with the Get-Help proxy
command. For now, we will not automticallly load this nested module.
You can enable if you want by editing the Pscx.UserPreferences.ps1
file and setting ModulesToImport -> GetHelp to $true.
