Background: PowerShell Core support policies state that after a patch release, one has to upgrade within a month to stay within support and for a minor version release, one has to update to the newer version in 6 months. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/scripting/powershell-support-lifecycle?view=powershell-6

  • The Visual Studio 2019 image uses PowerShell Core 6.2.0, which was released months ago, 6.2.2 or 6.2.3 should be used. Patches of PowerShell Core are usually only due to security and therefore non-breaking
  • This means that in 2 weeks, PowerShell 6.1 generally goes out of support in 2 weeks but what does that mean for the Visual Studio 2017 image, which uses 6.1.0 (which has received several patches already as well in the last months and therefore unsupported as well)? Whilst I understand, you do not want to disrupt people in those legacy images, using unuspported version does not seem to be the right solution either. Please come up with a plan.

Any updates @FeodorFitsner At the moment, I'd expect the new patch versions of PowerShell to be deployed.
