In case you didn't see this on Ryan Dunn's blog, we just released some neat Powershell cmdlets that wrap the Service Management API and allow you to script your deployments, upgrades and most of what you can do today in the Developer Portal.

They are available here:http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/azurecmdlets

The csmanage tool that utilizes the Service Management API may also be of interest to you: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsazuresamples

I generally don’t like to just make announcements like this on my blog but since it is very Windows Azure developer tool related, I wanted to include it.
