I recall when proxy functions first came out, but, I didn't have a chance to got my head around them. Does anyone know of a good article to help introduce the topic? Also, are there any major changes between v2 and v3?

Thanks,

Will

Here's a good introductory article:

No changes at all between v2 and v3 afaik.

I thought I post it but don't see my reply – so if you'll see it twice – sorry 🙂

There is an extension to proxy functions made by Kirk and Shay: http://pspx.codeplex.com If you don't want to use just basic cmdlet, this is great simplifying to proxy functions creation.
And you can also watch video from Deep Dive where both described how it works: http://dmitrysotnikov.wordpress.com/2012/03/30/video-shay-levy-and-kirk-munro-leveraging-proxy-functions-in-powershell/
