We have a new release of PSAppDeployToolkit, bringing us up to 3.10.0 and, we've added a slew of great new features and fixes.

  • Configure-EdgeExtensions - Can be installed and managed like applications, enabling extensions to be pushed to specific devices or users alongside existing GPO/Intune extension policies

  • Copy-File now uses Robocopy by default - Overcomes 260 char limit
  • Added Log File Rotation - logs will rotate automatically at 10mb size
  • User Interface supports High DPI mode - Updates to icons and images to support High DPI and better brand consistency
  • Improvements to overall codebase health, performance and compliance with Strict Mode
  • Remediation of a number of long-standing issues (such as Execute-ProcessAsUser)
  • Added VSCode workspace with default settings for PowerShell code formatting, default version (Windows PowerShell) and PSScriptAnalyzer linting.
  • Added ability to position progress dialogs to 'TopLeft', 'Top', 'TopRight', 'TopCenter', 'BottomLeft', 'Bottom', 'BottomRight'
  • Added -Wow6432Node switches for 32-bit registry support to all registry functions.

PSADT 101 Webinarโ€‹

The new release coincides with an episode of Patch My PC's monthly webinar series, focused entirely on PSAppDeployToolkit. This webinar goes over the latest release, gives an overview, explains the benefits, and gets you set up to use PSAppDeployToolkit. We'll go over the basics of setting up your environment and creating your first custom application deployment - and we'll show you how to take it into SCCM or Intune.

3.x entering maintenance modeโ€‹

Our plan is to switch the 3.x branch into maintenance mode going forward, with the only updates going forward being substantial break / fix or security updates. We are planning a 3.10.1 release to follow the current release within the next 3 weeks.

With our shift in focus to 4.0, we are aiming to have no breaking changes for existing scripts. We will have minimum supported versions for operating systems, .NET, and PowerShell versions - however, provided you meet these minimum supported version requirements, existing scripts should just work.

New Websiteโ€‹

Oh wow, this has been a long time coming! Oh ... I'm not talking about the long overdue v4. I'm talking about the new website!

PSAppDeployToolkit is feeling revitalized, and kinda cute, so it was only fair that we apply a fresh coat of paint to the site. And it's not just a little bit of paint, we've been working on this for a while now.

What's New?โ€‹

We've completely re-built the site from the ground up, and we've added a bunch of new features. We've invested a lot of time in improving the flow of the documentation, so it's easier to follow and quicker to get up to speed with the toolkit.

And we've created an all-important reference guide for the toolkit's Exit Codes, Variables and Functions to the top of the page, so it's easy to find.

Stay Tunedโ€‹

This isn't the only new thing on the horizon. More news very very soon.
