    • Configuration item cmdlets (such as Set-CMConfigurationItem) now ensure that they are always using the latest revision of a configuration item.
    • Network Access Protection and out of band management (AMT) cmdlets are deprecated on Configuration Manager (version 1511) and higher.
    • The Query Result Maximum has been disabled by default.
