A new update has been received for build 9860 Windows 10 and it includes OneGet, the Linux style package management. The new update has brought new features but this is of a good utility in the sense that every developer can use and every new install will have this feature. OneGet first made its appearance with Windows 8.1 but not in-built. It was possible to install it with Windows Management Framework 5.0 Preview. OneGet makes Software Discovery, Installation and Inventory (SDII) work via a common set of cmdlets and some APIs. Users can use these cmdlets for accomplishing various functions. A new feature added in it is the CTP. CTP is nothing but a prototype implementation of Chocolatey.


According to Microsoft,

OneGet is a new way to discover and install software packages from around the web. With OneGet, you can:

Manage a list of software repositories in which packages can be searched, acquired, and installed
Search and filter your repositories to find the packages you need
Seamlessly install and uninstall packages from one or more repositories with a single PowerShell command
