Windows Azure SDK for PHP 


Deprecated in favor of the new SDK on GitHub

The Microsoft Windows Azure team has released a new Windows Azure SDK for PHP. This release is part of an effort to keep PHP client libraries up to date with new Windows Azure features and to make PHP a first-class citizen in Windows Azure. The latest client libraries are on GitHub. While the SDK hosted on here will continue to work for the foreseeable future, it is strongly recommended that new PHP/Windows Azure applications use the SDK hosted on GitHub.
