I just got an email from the Windows Azure team that there are new SDK versions for the Windows Azure offerings. Unfortunately, SQL express is still listed as the database version for the fabric storage client. One cool improvement is the addition of a role in the platform for Silverlight.
Here are links to the updated (January 2009 CTP) SDKs:

- Windows Azure Tools for Visual Studio: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=128752
There is a rainbow in the cloud! 🙂
