It’s time again for the release of more exciting new Windows Azure Marketplace content! Today we announce the release to the Marketplace of 46 new applications and a great new data offer from LexisNexis, Lawyers.com Consumer Legal Articles - Each article is written by lawyers in a manner that's authoritative and informative, yet easy enough for a non-lawyer to understand.

Also announced today, the release of the August 2011 update to the Windows Azure Platform Training kit includes a new Hands-on Lab (HOL), Introduction to Windows Azure Marketplace for Applications.  In this HOL you will take an existing application through the full process of prepping the application code to work with the marketplace, as well as the process of submitting the application for publication. 

You can download the updated Windows Azure Platform Training Kit – August 2011 Refresh from the Microsoft download center.
