Dynamic IIS Compression Support
Chris is right, this is complete. Please see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff436045(v=MSDN.10).aspx
Does section 6.4 of Azure Blob Whitepaper still apply ?
"Currently Windows Azure does not automatically compress data when you send it from your application to the storage in the cloud. However, your application can compress the data first and then store it in the cloud. This can give the application performance benefits in term of network bandwidth, especially when the data is highly compressible. Furthermore, remember to set the Content-Encoding header to "gzip" when uploading the blob compressed with gzip, so that when the blob is retrieved, the web clients know that the content is in a compressed form and know how to deal with it. "
I'm still unclear... must I opt-in into encryption?
Does encryption affect what I'm billed for (reduction in network traffic)?
Does this affect all MIME types?
WCF on WebRole?
WCF on WorkerRole?
This clearly isnt completed as you cannot change the mimeTypes compressed. WCF messages aren't being compressed.
Azure 1.2 supports this but only with default mime types, and we are unable to set custom once. i.e. Can't compress WCF traffic. This is a real blocker.

Azure Guest OS v1.2 supports this.
We have a SL client connected to WCF which sends data as binary serialized XML. The file transfer size of objects w/ binary XML is approx 700KB. With IIS compression we've tested, the size is 39KB. We need this feature badly.
I would also like to have compression with table storage queries (at least GET) if Accept-Encoding: gzip is specified.
