Windows Azure SDK and Windows Azure Tools Updated - Jan 2009 CTP

We've just released the latest version of the Windows Azure SDK and the Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio. For the most part, we've concentrated on making things more robust, improving performance, and fixed plenty of bugs.

The areas you should mostly see improvements on are:

  • Code/Build/Run/Debug cycle
  • Support for Silverlight debugging on Web Roles
  • Improved Development Storage Service integration
  • Service definition and configuration file errors are now detailed in VS
  • Bug where publishing a package that was above a certain size would fail has been fixed as well

As always, the best place to post questions is on the Windows Azure Forum on MSDN as members from both the SDK and Tools teams monitor it.

Jim, has also posted about the release with some more details as well.
