With some very nice new features!
Instead of deleting and reconfiguring a whole new instance when you upload a new version of your service, now it is upgraded in place!
Even better, the deployment ID of the app (which is used in the DNS entry) doesn’t change, so no more having to update our DNS records every time I deploy a new version.
And best of all, if you have more than 1 instance of a role running, it takes turn upgrading them so your service is never down!
There are some nice new additions to the Visual Studio deployment ...
