I am testing out the new version and saw some changes to the powershell commandlets. The get-vbrtapemedium returns the location of the tape in the library, but it only says "Slot" without any number now. In the gui the correct number is displayed. Documenatation says it should return the slot ID, as in V7.

You're right, the PowerShell tape mode has been restructured. We've done it mostly due to previous model missing options and having multiple design shortcomings. Like, it was not possible to change most of backup to tape job, file to tape job, media pool settings, etc.
It required major design reconsideration, indeed, but we tried to preserve compatibility and provide alternatives for replaced methods and parameters.
