      This SDK includes API libraries for building connected applications using Windows Azure AppFabric. It spans the entire spectrum of today’s Internet applications – from rich connected applications with advanced connectivity requirements to Web-style applications that use simple protocols such as HTTP. This enables services to communicate with the broadest possible range of clients. This page also includes samples that you can download. The version 1.5 SDK includes an updated Service Bus assembly that includes support for durable, or “brokered” messaging features, such as queues, topics, and subscriptions. These features require the .NET Framework version 4.0. If you have a dependency on the .NET Framework version 3.5, you should download or continue to use version 1.0 of the AppFabric SDK. However, the v1.0 SDK does not support the new messaging features.
