Even while we are here at BUILD we are working hard to make deploying and managing your Windows Azure applications simpler. We have made some significant improvements to the Windows Azure Platform PowerShell Cmdlets and we are proud to announce we are releasing them today on CodePlex: http://wappowershell.codeplex.com/releases/view/73463.

As part of making the cmdlets more consistent and easier to deploy we have renamed a few cmdlets and enhanced others with the intent of following PowerShell cmdlet design guidelines much closer. From a deployment perspective we have merged the Access Control Service PowerShell Cmdlets with the existing Windows Azure PowerShell Cmdlets to have both in a single installation.
In addition to those changes we have added quite a few new and powerful cmdlets in this release:
Breaking Changes From 1.0 to 2.0
Updated Namespaces in the Cmdlets Solution
