Or you follow the Windows Azure App Fabric team blog!

I have been waiting MONTHS for this release, begging and pleading with Microsoft to get more information on when the big day would come.  Needless to say I am super excited!

This version adds:

Federation provider and Security Token Service (FINALLY!)

  • Out of box federation with Active Directory Federation Services 2.0, Windows Live ID, Google, Yahoo, Facebook

New authorization scenarios

  • Delegation using OAuth 2.0

Improved developer experience

  • New web-based management portal
  • Fully programmatic management using OData
  • Works with Windows Identity Foundation

Additional protocol support

  • WS-Federation, WS-Trust, OpenID 2.0, OAuth 2.0 (Draft 13)

Now to just migrate from Appfabric Labs…
