Yesterday (3/9/11) Microsoft announced updates for the Windows Azure SDK and Tools (VSCloudService.exe). As the download page indicates, this SDK release’s primary purpose is to address stability issues. Other improvements include:
- Azure Management Portal – Improved responsiveness
- Azure Connect – Multi-admin support and installation for non-English Windows
- Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN) – Provides for delivery of secure content via HTTPS
Be aware also that the 1.4 SDK installer automatically uninstalls previous versions. So, if you need 1.3 for a while still, you’ll need to keep it safe.
