In today’s edition of the Daily Update, we’ve got two items: one for gamers and one for developers.

Check ‘em out:

· Anyone who reads Next at Microsoft knows that blog editor Steve Clayton is a HUGE fan of Forza Motorsport. Head on over to Next to see a slick new video that takes you behind the scenes of Forza Horizon, which is due to be released on Oct. 23 for the Xbox 360. You can also see the first video in the series in this Sept. 14 post on Next. That's a screenshot from Forza Horizon below.

· As part of our continuing commitment to open source, we are happy to announce that the Windows Azure Mobile Services SDK will be available on GitHub, and as always we are welcoming community contributions. You can read more about it over on the Windows Azure Team Blog.
