In recent months I’ve seen classes released, and as more and more features are added, PowerShell’s audience and capability is expanding. Some of the audience won’t be the people writing the tools, but those using it, and to make GUIs effective, I imagine we’ll need similar WPF & WinForm support for PowerShell as we do for C#.
A workaround for multi-threading is using PSJobs, sapien forums have some great functions built to help with this, and it does work quite well, but it’s limited. So, do you think PowerShell will have multi-threading introduced, similarly to background workers?
Speaking of GUI, do you think we’ll see Visual Studio tools released for PowerShell WPF?
I’m interested to hear if anyone else thinks this is necessary, or if it’ll happen.
