Windows Azure SDK 2.0 Released

Go get it now!

So what’s new?

Web Sites – VS Tooling for diagnostics, management, and simplified publishing

Cloud Services Diagnostics – VS Tooling for configuring and viewing diagnostics data on a live service without redeployment

Cloud Services – Support for newly available high memory VM sizes

Storage – Storage client 2.0 in new projects + VS Server Explorer Tooling for working with Service Bus – Updated client library with support for browsing messages, the message pump programming model, and auto-deleting idle messaging entities .

In 2.0, you can now create and delete Windows Azure tables, add/edit/delete table entities from Visual Studio server explorer itself. This saves you time and allows you to use Visual Studio as the single tool you need to build apps using tables.

Get Thee the Bits!

You can download the new SDK from WindowsAzure.com or the Web Platform Installer.

In addition, Windows Azure PowerShell (separate download) has moved to PowerShell 3.0 while adding numerous commands for Web Sites, Cloud Services, VMs, and more.  You can find the full change log here.
