Es gibt einen Windows Azure Store und eine Vielzahl von Neuerungen im SDK (bspw. in der Storage API). (Mehr Details zu den Neuerungen)

Für die Verwendung von .publishingSettings-Files gibt es eine Änderung. Das XML-Schema wurde angehoben auf die Version 2.0.

“The format of .publishsettings files have changed with this release. You can't use an earlier version of the Windows Azure Tools to open a .publishsettings file that was created with the 1.8 version. You can use the 1.8 version to open .publishsettings files that were created with earlier versions of the tools. You can determine whether a .publishsettings file uses the new format by opening it in a text editor and looking for the SchemaVersion element. If the file contains the element <SchemaVersion="2.0">, the file is in the 1.8 format. If you try to use an earlier version to open a file that's in the 1.8 format, the file fails to open, and the following error message appears: The file File.publishsettings does not contain valid publish settings for Windows Azure.”
