Bruce,

Have there been any releases to powershell 1.0 which contain actual providers for AD without having to brute force using [ADSI]. A large amount of my work is in using AD and I see this as a huge hole in the current implementation.

Re: AD provider for powershell
There's nothing with PSH for AD providers, but you can get "PSCX" (www.codeplex.com/powershellcx) which gives you a good open source AD provider *today*.

Re: AD provider for powershell
Unfortunately we had to cut the AD provider from V1. For the time being you could look at using the PSCX provider as Marco suggests or try the Active Directory cmdlets from Quest:
