Nice To Know–New PowerShell 4.0 CMDLets for DISM functions in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2

In Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 there are new CMDlets that expands the capability’s of the DISM module.

To Apply:

Expand-WindowsImage -ImagePath C:\MDTBuildLab\Captures\REFWS2012R2-001.wim -Index 1 -ApplyPath d:\

To Capture:

New-WindowsImage -ImagePath C:\test.wim -CapturePath d:\ -Name "test"

So far we have found no docs that describes this at all, so this just trial and error
