The --chef-service-interval option has been renamed to --chef-daemon-interval.

Now supports the latest azure-sdk gem, version 0.9.0.

New options introduced:

--azure_availability_set, which allows the user to create virtual machines in specified availability set.

--daemon, which allows the user to configure the chef-client to run as a daemon by specifying none, service, or task. This option is only supported on Windows and requires the --bootstrap-protocol option to be set to ‘cloud-api’.
