This week Microsoft released a flurry of interesting new web service APIs as part of their new Windows Live Platform beta. As a result, we've now listed four new Microsoft APIs ranging from photos, to security, to contacts, to the new Silverlight Streaming service. You can now view 18 Micrsoft APIs in our listings.
- Windows Live Data API: Windows Live Data provides a mechanism by which developers can ask Windows Live users for permission to access the user's Windows Live services and data on the user's behalf. Currently Windows Live Data exposes Windows Live Contacts which is the central address book for all Windows Live services. Access to additional Windows Live services will be added for the upcoming Beta and other future releases.
- Silverlight Streaming API: The Silverlight Streaming service REST protocol is used to upload and manage Silverlight applications on the hosted service.
