Other updates:

We have added Azure Databricks notebook activity in Azure Data Factory. You can now operationalize your Databricks notebooks in Data Factory.  

From <https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/support-for-operationalizing-azure-databricks-notebook/>


Azure Stream Analytics customers can now easily build solutions for scenarios such as connected cars, fleet management, and mobile asset tracking.
Developers can use built-in geospatial functions in their stream-processing logic to define geographical areas. Developers can evaluate incoming geospatial data for containment, proximity, and overlap, and then generate alerts or start necessary workflows.
These geospatial capabilities are in alignment with the GeoJSON specification.



With Azure Stream Analytics, customers can combine the power of JavaScript with the simplicity and pervasiveness of SQL.
Historically, Stream Analytics let developers express their real-time query logic by using a simple SQL-like language. To support more expressive custom code and help customers implement advanced scenarios, Stream Analytics now supports user-defined functions (UDFs) via JavaScript. With this feature, customers can write their custom code in JavaScript, and easily invoke it as part of their real-time stream processing query.


The public preview of Azure Stream Analytics tools for Visual Studio includes support for local testing on client machines.
