A new service update (SU4) for SQL Azure Data Sync service is now live! The most noteworthy new feature in SU4 is to allow users to edit existing sync groups to cater for schema changes. For step-by-step guidance on how to edit sync group for different kinds of schema changes, please refer to this post on Windows Azure blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/windowsazure/archive/2012/04/03/announcing-sql-azure-data-sync-preview-update.aspx

Is data encrypted/decrypted during syn?
My vote for "SQL Azure Data Sync Service Update 4 Now Live":
The SQL Server databases to be synchronized are registered with the Agent; it then securely transfers data changes between the SQL Server databases and the SQL Azure Data Sync service.
Do you know if this update includes support for spatial type with sync framework for sql azure?
@Khaled - No, this release doesnt include spatial support. it's planned for service update 5 already, see: www.mygreatwindowsazureidea.com/.../44459-sql-azure-data-sync-feature-voting
