HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - June 21, 2010) -  Idera, a leading provider of management and administration solutions for Microsoft PowerShell, announced the public beta of PowerShell Plus™ 3.5. PowerShell Plus is a powerful interactive development environment (IDE) for Windows PowerShell designed to help administrators and developers quickly master the PowerShell scripting language while dramatically increasing the productivity of both novice and expert users.

PowerShell Plus v3.5 beta includes these new features:
