Highlights of version 4:

Better Code. Versions 1-3 of Azure Storage Explorer pre-dated the commercial Azure launch and there was no formal Storage Client library. Code from the SDK samples was used, which caused the source code base to be huge and complex. In version 4 we are using the .NET StorageClient library and the code is compact and well-organized. The source code is open and is part of this CodePlex project.
Newer storage feature support. Support has been added for newer features such as blob root containers.
Direct data entry and editing of blobs, messages, and entities.
Improved UI. The new WPF-based UI is cleaner, and supports opening multiple storage acounts at the same in tab views. The Mode-View-ViewModel pattern is used.
Free. Azure Storage Explorer remains a free community donation.
