We already were able to create Mobile applications with Windows Azure SQL Databases as backend, use push notifications and use different identity providers. But now there is also scheduler service possibility added. http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/develop/mobile/tutorials/schedule-backend-tasks/ Which can be used for other services too.

Now everything can also be configured and maintained via the Command line tools. That is really great, now our ALM ALM processes can be automated even better for every Windows Azure development. Because less manual actions, the better. http://www.thejoyofcode.com/The_twelve_days_of_ZUMO.aspx
