This week, dotCloud, Amazon Web Services, Google App Engine and CloudFoundry announced a variety of improvements from improved Rails support to the announcement of the stable version of Google's Go language. 

dotCloud

MongoDB 2.0 Support
dotCloud supports MongoDB 2.0 which enhances concurrency and memory capacity along with introducing geo-spacial features.  Alas, migration requires a manual upgrade (and potential downtime) for previously deployed MongoDB services.

Amazon Web Services

CloudFront Offers Improved Live Streaming
CloudFront is now compatible with Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5 on EC2, using the lower minimum content expiration period announced last week.  Live streaming tutorial here.
