Cleanup #if CORECLR code

PowerShell 6.0 will be exclusively built on top of CoreCLR, so we are removing a large amount of code that's built only for FullCLR. To read more about this, check out this blog post.

6.0.0-beta.4 - 2017-07-12

Windows PowerShell backwards compatibility

In the beta.4 release, we've introduced a change to add the Windows PowerShell PSModulePath to the default PSModulePath in PowerShell Core on Windows. (#4132)

Along with the introduction of .NET Standard 2.0 in 6.0.0-beta.1 and a GAC probing fix in 6.0.0-beta.3, this change will enable a large number of your existing Windows PowerShell modules/scripts to "just work" inside of PowerShell Core on Windows. (Note: We have also fixed the CDXML modules on Windows that were regressed in 6.0.0-beta.2 as part of #4144).

So that we can further enable this backwards compatibility, we ask that you tell us more about what modules or scripts do and don't work in Issue #4062. This feedback will also help us determine if PSModulePath should include the Windows PowerShell values by default in the long run.

For more information on this, we invite you to read this blog post explaining PowerShell Core and .NET Standard in more detail.

Move to .NET Core 2.0 (.NET Standard 2.0 support)

PowerShell Core has moved to using .NET Core 2.0 so that we can leverage all the benefits of .NET Standard 2.0. (#3556) To learn more about .NET Standard 2.0, there's some great starter content on Youtube, on the .NET blog, and on GitHub. We'll also have more content soon in our repository documentation (which will eventually make its way to official documentation). In a nutshell, .NET Standard 2.0 allows us to have universal, portable modules between Windows PowerShell (which uses the full .NET Framework) and PowerShell Core (which uses .NET Core). Many modules and cmdlets that didn't work in the past may now work on .NET Core, so import your favorite modules and tell us what does and doesn't work in our GitHub Issues!

Telemetry

If you want to opt-out of this telemetry, simply delete $PSHome\DELETE_ME_TO_DISABLE_CONSOLEHOST_TELEMETRY. Even before the first run of Powershell, deleting this file will bypass all telemetry. In the future, we plan on also enabling a configuration value for whatever is approved as part of RFC0015. We also plan on exposing this telemetry data (as well as whatever insights we leverage from the telemetry) in our community dashboard.

If you have any questions or comments about our telemetry, please file an issue.
