New version of PowerShell Help files

If you start Windows PowerShell with the Run as Administrator option and then type Update-Help -Force -Verbose you should get the new version of some PowerShell Help XML-based files and About topics. Updatable Help contains a huge number of About topics:

– 103 About topics for the Microsoft.PowerShell.Core module (actually, it’s a snap-in)
– 1 About topic for the Microsoft.WSMan.Management module
– 9 About topics for the PSWorkflow module
– 4 About topics for the PSScheduledJob module

The new version is 3.1.0.0.  Only the documentation for the en-US culture will be updated.
