(sort of) Updating the Powershell ISE

The Powershell ISE is now being developed independently of the Windows Management Framework. What does this mean?

1. Install Windows Management Framework 5.

2. Run Install-Module PowerShellISE-preview.

3. Run it with isep

4. For start menu shortcuts run Install-ISEPreviewShortcuts
