There’s a new Release Candidate out for Microsoft Windows Powershell.  RC2 seems very close to shipping, it runs faster, and has some nice features baked in (WMI and ADSI are now included).  As with each release, there have been numerous changes.  One change that is rather important, but somehow missed in the notes is the change to the profiles directory.  The profiles directory used to be Documents and SettingsusernameDocumentsPSConfiguration.  That has changed to Documents and SettingsusernameDocumentsWindowPowerShell.  It’s a good change, I totally agree with it, but *please* document it!
 
BTW, if you are wondering how I found the new profile location, at a PowerShell prompt, I typed $profile.  This gives you the location of the profile used in starting the session.
