What a shock this morning when I realized that Microsoft decided to discontinue the Azure Storage Emulator (read this bug report for more info).  Grrrr!  The emulator is a useful tool for doing local testing and debugging before switching to the real stuff on Azure.

When trying to create a blob container, I get this error:

System.AggregateException: 'One or more errors occurred. (The REST version of this request is not supported by this release of the Storage Emulator. Please upgrade the storage emulator to the latest version. Refer to the following URL for more information: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=392237)'

The message is kind of misleading since there are no new version of the emulator.  In fact, the emulator page must be updated to reflect this change.

So here's the state of the whole thing as I understand it today.  Feel free to comment if you have newer info or a different take on the story.

In summary, when using v11 we're screwed.
