Nathan on the team has just updated the Windows Azure Toolkit for Social Games to version 1.1. This version is a significant step forward and enables developers to more easily and quickly build out their social games on the Windows Azure Platform.

The other big change he made in this release was to separate the core toolkit from the Tankster game based on your feedback and replace with 2 needed simpler samples,  Tic-Tac-Toe and Four in a Row. The Tankster game is now available separately as a sample built on top of the toolkit.
