It is also an lts version, which will be supported for three years.

Furthermore, Microsoft is introducing the release version of PowerShell 7.2. This version is based on .Net 6 and should include performance improvements, bug fixes and new APIs. As of version 7.2, PowerShell updates are additionally installed through Windows Update. ANSI support is also being expanded in PowerShell 7.2.
