Some random Azure news…

Some of the updates in this version include:

Azure Storage Explorer 5 Preview 1

I also noticed that a new version of the Azure Storage Explorer is available. Azure Storage Explorer is a useful GUI tool for inspecting and altering the data in your Windows Azure Storage storage projects including the logs of your cloud-hosted applications. A must have for every Azure developer!
