Today I’m excited to announce a major update to ACS. It’s available in our labs environment: http://portal.appfabriclabs.com. Keep in mind that there is no SLA around this release, but accounts and usage of the service are free while it is in the labs environment.
This release includes many of the features I discussed late last year: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/justinjsmith/archive/2009/09/28/access-control-service-roadmap-for-pdc-and-beyond.aspx. Here’s a snapshot of what’s in this release:
There’s quite a bit more information available on our CodePlex project: http://acs.codeplex.com. There you will find documentation, screencasts, samples, readmes, an issue tracker, and discussion lists.
Also check out the Channel 9 video at http://channel9.msdn.com/shows/Identity/Introducing-the-new-features-of-the-August-Labs-release-of-the-Access-Control-Service.
Like always, I encourage you to check it out and let the team know what you think.
