Here is the quick updates on the go on Content Search WebPart (CSWP) a new types of webpart introduced in SharePoint 2013.

This WebPart can used to display the search result using the "Display Template" and can be inserted new content in to search result in JSON format in your search result Page.

Display templates are nothing but a block formatted with html and java-script to enhance the user experience on the Search Page.

Auto hosted app no longer supported in Office 365

Since early evening I was able to host my Light Switch apps in Office 365 SharePoint 2013 flavor.
But this morning I started to update the same and got this error message saying that "Auto hosted apps no longer supported in Office 365".

Earlier,I heard about lot of news and read articles that MS going to snap this feature in Office 365. But I though they could extend the auto-hosted preview for at least another couple of years (Still lot of developers need to understand the newly introduced App Models ) and time corporate strategically move from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013.

But I am not believed it in couple of month from Microsoft announcement (support ends for auto hosted app on Office 365).

Now its cent percent sure,your auto hosted app model no longer fit for Office 365.
