February update for Azure IoT Edge
The February update for Azure IoT Edge includes improvements to the runtime:

- Edge CLI: The Azure IoT extension for Azure CLI now allows programmatic management of IoT Edge solutions in addition to the existing Azure portal experience.
- Protocol choice: Users can now configure the runtime to use AMQP or AMQP over WebSockets for communication with Azure IoT Hub.
- Bug fixes: Multiple issues have been resolved, including fixes for the "could not find file 'C:\app\backup.json' exception" error and the bug that caused edge devices to appear as disconnected in the Azure portal.
