Make AppFabric Caching Support Notifications
AppFabric caching has quotas which cap the amount of traffic and number of transactions allowed. Without notification support Azure applications must poll to detect changes. This is veru undesirable.
Azure Managed Cache now supports notifications.
I would also like to see the number of allowed concurrent connections raised. I am currently using two instances of a web roles and I'm using up 4 out of 5 of my allowed connections just for the basics (session and caching). So even if I use just 2 MB of cache, I have to buy larger cache just to support one more instance...

I agree, especially on the concurrent connections front. I'd like to see the maximum number of concurrent connections increased for each respective cache size. If I want to increase the number of web roles I'm running, to meet peak periods of traffic, I now have to purchase larger cache sizes only for their larger maximum concurrent connection limit. Based on the feedback I've seen it is better to use one DataCacheFactory per role rather than disposing and creating it per request.
Actually, regions and get by tag is also needed -- otherwise, there is no way to enumerate through a collection of things. API is not useful in its current form for programmatic use.
