    As a developer I want a demonstration in a short video (<15 minutes)of some of the key architectural elements of the reference implementation so that I can quickly orient myself to these elements of the design of the reference implementation.

  4. Access to Diagnostics Agent

    The diagnostics agent is currently an distant service from which you can only retrieve data by sending it requests.
    What I would like to see is that I can subscribe to either queues and topics or directly subscribe to an event which allows me to capture the diagnostics data as it happens. I would also like to see a solid logging API which reports directly to the diagnostics agent rather that to a custom data store. This allows me to to get unified diagnostics info which covers server, service and custom code messages.
    It also allows for 3rd party service…

  7. Auto-scaling for On-Premise applications

    Is there any plan for for Auto-scaling on on-premise applications in Autoscaling Application Block instead of focusing a lot on Azure platform as we still have a lot of applications on on-premise servers hosting web applications, windows service applications and SQL Server 2005/2008?

  8. NetSqlAzman integration

    Did you remember Security AppBlock? This block remains in future versions?

    Did you remember AzMan?

    For me this is the right hand to design security requeriments for applications. It could be better for use/develop and for design security.

    Thanks

  10. Voting

    Sometimes applications need to determine wheather to take certain action or not by voting on it. All nodes involved need to be able to vote, and the master decides on the final action based on the responses.

  11. Diagnostics: runtime change API

    As a developer I want to have a change API for the Logging Application Block so that I can switch to different levels of logging verbosity (from being completely disabled, to logging every piece of debug info).

  12. Developer's Guide: Architectural Guidance

    As an architect I want a Developer's Guide that discusses different architectural approaches to use with Windows Azure applications (for example CQRS) so that I can apply architectural good and proven practices to my own Windows Azure applications. The developers guide should illustrate how Enterprise Library supports these architectural best practices.
