Microsoft recapped the series of updates to is Azure cloud services over the last 10 days.  These include:

Web Sites: SSL is now included at no additional charge in standard tiers. Up to 500 websites can be hosted in a single standard tier hosting plan.  Azure web-sites run in VMs isolated to host only specified web applications (for predictable performance and security isolation).  The user can scale-up/down the number of VMs either manually or using our built-in AutoScale functionality.  The pricing for standard tier web-sites is based on the number of VMs.
A Traffic Manager and Java support were added as well.
Virtual Machines: Support for Chef and Puppet extensions, Basic Pricing tier for Compute Instances
