Azure DSC Extension v2.3 released

NOTE: For information on OS support, and other features, please refer to our release history.

Today we released version 2.3 of the Azure DSC Extension, which adds support for Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview.

Running the Extension on Windows Server 2016 does not require installing WMF nor rebooting the VM, so the startup time for the Extension is significantly faster. The Extension will use the DSC version included in the OS.

This version of the Extension does not include any additional changes.

Use “Set-AzureVMDscExtension -Version 2.3” to install this version on your VM (or you can use 2.* if you wish your VM to auto-update when a new version is released.)
