Azure Storage Explorer 3.0 Beta Now Available

I'm pleased to announce Azure Storage Explorer version 3.0 is now available as a beta release on CodePlex. Azure Storage Explorer is Neudesic's free tool for viewing and managing Windows Azure blobs, queues, and tables.

This third generation of Azure Storage Explorer has a fresh new user interface and many new features. Text blobs can be edited within the tool, and each of Windows Azure's storage types (blobs, queues, tables) can be imported/exported between the cloud and your local file system.

For tables, you can import or export records from spreadsheet CSV files, allowing you to conveniently use Excel to work with table data locally.

As this is a beta, users are advised to be careful in their use of it and to back up their cloud data frequently.

The formal release of Azure Storage Explorer 3.0 will come shortly after the release of Azure 1.0 in November. As always, Azure Storage Explorer is and will remain free.
