The 2011-08-18 version of Azure Storage includes these changes:
The Get Blob operation returns an
Accept-Ranges:bytesheader in the response to indicate that the service supports range requests.
The Get Blob operation supports a new range header format that reads from the specified offset to the end of the blob. For more information, see Specify the range header for Azure Blob Storage operations.
ETags that are returned by Blob Storage are enclosed in quotation marks. In addition, Blob Storage accepts quoted and unquoted ETags.
The Set Blob Storage Properties operation can specify a default version to use when an unversioned request is received.
If-Match GET and PUT operations against Blob Storage now return HTTP 404 (Not Found) and HTTP 412 (Precondition Failed) if the blob doesn’t exist. This change applies to version 2009-09-19 and later.
Azure Table Storage supports projections of selected properties by using the $select query option. For more information, see the Query Entities operation and Write LINQ queries against Azure Table Storage.
Azure Queue Storage adds the Update Message operation, which can extend the invisibility time of a message or update the contents of the message.
The Put Message operation adds the optional
visibilitytimeoutparameter, which can extend the invisibility time of a new message.
You can now set the
visibilitytimeoutparameter to a maximum of 7 days, up from the previous maximum of 2 hours.
Queue messages can now be 64 kilobytes (KB) in size, up from the previous maximum of 8 KB.
