Improved Windows Support
------------------------
-Support for Salt on Windows continues to get better. Software management has
-become more seamless with Linux/UNIX/BSD, with installed software now
-recognized by the short names defined in the :doc:`repository SLS
-</ref/windows-package-manager>`. This makes it possible to run ``salt '*'
-pkg.version firefox`` and get back results from Windows and non-Windows minions
-alike.

+Support for Salt on Windows continues to improve. Software management on
+Windows has become more seamless with Linux/UNIX/BSD software management.
+Installed software is now recognized by the short names defined in the
+:doc:`repository SLS </ref/windows-package-manager>`. This makes it possible to
+run ``salt '*' pkg.version firefox`` and get back results from Windows and
+non-Windows minions alike.
+
+When templating files on Windows, Salt will now correctly use Windows
+appropriate line endings. This makes it much easier to edit and consume files
+on Windows.
+
+When using the cmd state the ``shell`` option now allows for specifying
+Windows Powershell as an alternate shell to execute cmd.run and cmd.script.
+This opens up Salt to all the power of Windows Powershell and its advanced
+Windows management capabilities.
+
+Several fixes and optimizations were added for the Windows networking modules,
+especially when working with IPv6.
+
+A system module was added that makes it easy to restart and shutdown Windows
+minions.
+
+The Salt Minion will now look for its config file in ``c:\salt\conf`` by
+default. This means that it's no longer necessary to specify the ``-c`` option
+to specify the location of the config file when starting the Salt Minion on
+Windows in a terminal.
Muliple Targets for pkg.removed, pkg.purged States
