We expect this deployment to help address performance issues we’ve been experiencing for the past week. We will continue to monitor the service and measure the results of this deployment.
As a bonus, this deployment has re-enabled Windows Azure CDN for NuGet packages. We had initially enabled the CDN last week but some users around the globe reported the DNS name of the CDN host could not be resolved. After a week, we trust that the DNS name has propagated and we can now all benefit from faster package downloads.
Thank you once again for your patience. If you encounter any issues with NuGet, feel free to report issues on CodePlex.
