New Build of Monad Available

We posted a new build of Monad today. It's available through the Microsoft Download Center. This means no NDA (which betaplace had) and no need to download the whole WinFX SDK. And, it's Beta 2, a newer build than both of those. Improvements include COM support, which was in a long time ago but was out of Beta 1.

You can download x86 and x64 versions (at some point I'll update the "Get Monad!" info over there to point to these).

Ok, so why is it not also available on betaplace? Seems like things are pretty stale there right now. I guess I'll take beta 2 for a spin and kick the tires.

Is there grep?

We're moving away from betaplace (which is NDA) to Download Center (which is public).

There is no grep per se, but you can do a lot with:

get-content filename | where-object { $_ -match "[regex]" }

where [regex] is a regular expression. Or you can use -eq or -like for equality or wildcard matches.
