In short, these investments circle around even more security. In addition, custom remoting connections may become an interesting addition: code you write to access remote systems can then be used by other cmdlets, essentially opening up the remoting infrastructure.

Also, the team wants to make it easier for existing Windows PowerShell users to acquire PowerShell 7. We may see in 2022 actually the first update in Windows PowerShell for years: the team discusses to add a new cmdlet to Windows PowerShell that installs PowerShell 7 on the box.
