Update CM cmdlet documentation and downloadable help file
Running update-help pulls down a help file to an older version of the cmdlets. For instance, do a clean install of the console and cmdlets.
On a machine that has not had the help file updated, you will see 6 parameter sets under Syntax. Run update-help and then try again. You will now see 2 parameter sets under Syntax. In addition, there is no detailed information for the new cmdlets added.

I just now realized we have all of these great Configuration Manager cmdelts and our documentation is getting better and better and better...
Wouldn't it be awesome if the -Online parameter worked for all of the cmdlets? Currently if you attempt to run the "Get-Help "Get-CMPackage" -online command you are informed that the help information doesn't include the online command.
How about instead each command references it's corresponding documentation page :D

The syntax to get speed improvments for the new Add-CMDeviceCollectionDirectRuleMembership cmdlet is super weird, and it's not covered in the help examples.
Speaking of which, the copy in the help examples on 1806 has some very esoteric verbiage.
I'd like to see the help updated with easier to read wordings, and an example should be added to demonstrate the quicker syntax.
On that topic, why does the cmdlet now take both a -Resource or -ResourceID paramsets? The cmdlet has become kind of weird, maybe the old operation mode should just be removed to make it easier to understand.
The speed gains ARE REAL though, and super impressive. Awesome work team!

Yes, this is not optimal
Also forgot to add that the cmdlet reference page is out of date as well.
