Windows Live Custom Domains has released a v2.0 Beta SDK (download here). There are 24 methods, 12 of them new to this beta.

The following features have been added for all domain owners:

  • Create member now includes new properties: first name, last name, and market preference
  • Rename member
  • Admins can now use a certificate as well as Windows Live ID for authentication

And we’ve added features for pre-approved customers to

  • Create members with additional Window Live ID properties
  • Apply/remove a Hotmail subscription offer for a member
  • Reset member Windows Live ID password
  • Suspend member email login privilege

The sample applications have been improved, and we added a csvsync application that allows customers to synchronize their live WLCD members with a csv file (add new accounts and delete missing accounts).

We are looking for a select group of customers to join a Beta program to test these methods in a production environment. Please contact us at dsupport@microsoft.com if you want to be considered for Beta program.
