When the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer was first released, it did seem a little odd that Microsoft would neglect supporting Linux. However, they did support both Windows and Mac OSX initially. In good news, there have been a number of updates to the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer announced with a short roadmap of what’s to come in the future.

New Azure Storage Explorer features in the January update (version 0.7.20160107) are:

  • Linux Support
  • Attach storage accounts with custom endpoints
  • Attach blob containers with a SAS Key
  • View and edit blob metadata

Here’s some of the future features coming as mentioned in the roadmap:

  • Support for Queues
  • Support for Files
  • Visual Studio Cloud Explorer Integration
