PowerShell Core 6.0: Generally Available (GA) and Supported (microsoft.com)

Way, way faster. Opening a new tab in ConEmu (with default terminal set to 'pwsh' instead of the old 'powershell') is almost instant and my giant profile load time is halved (1.5s to 726ms).

Also: your $profile dir has changed, so move/copy it to the new place.

However, there are currently no plans to introduce new functionality to Windows PowerShell.

Yes, but that's because it's Powershell Core now. Powershell Core 6 + upcoming Windows specific plugins will replace the old Powershell 5.
