In preview testing since September 2016, Microsoft’s Azure Command Line 2.0 version has now been made available for all.
Today’s announcement means that customers can now use these commands in production, with full support by Microsoft both through our Azure support channels or GitHub. We don’t expect breaking changes for these commands in new releases of Azure CLI 2.0.
This new version of Azure CLI should feel much more native to developers who are familiar with command line experiences in the bash enviornment for Linux and macOS with simple commands that have smart defaults for most common operations and that support tab completion and pipe-able outputs for interacting with other text-parsing tools like grep, cut, jq and the popular JMESpath query syntax . It’s easy to install on the platform of your choice and learn.
Full announcement (with information for how to get started): Azure Command Line 2.0 now generally available
