Last week there was already the news that .NET 4.5, the latest version of the framework at this moment, was deployed on Windows Azure Web Sites. However what confused a lot of people was that it didn’t show up in the portal. As of now it does.

So instead of seeing this under the Configure tab:

windowsazurewebsites_frameworkversion_01

You’ll now see:

windowsazurewebsites_frameworkversion_02

Now only the current version of node.js needs to be added to the portal. Btw, that’s 0.6.20.

Also be sure to check out this screencast at Channel 9 about the upgrade to .NET 4.5.

I just opened the Preview portal and was welcomed by a small guidance wizard with a quick tour. After that I noticed that there were some new icons and that the +NEW menu got an upgrade as well.

So in the main menu there’s a new add-ons item:

portal_addons

And in the +NEW button on the lower left there’s also the new feature “Store”:

portal_new

However when clicking it I got the message:

portal_addon_message

That’s a bit of a bummer so I guess I’ll have to wait before I can make use off the new things being provided here. I have a good feeling that next week Microsoft will reveal a lot more about this during the BUILD conference.

Grz, Kris.
