On the Windows blog Microsoft announced improvements to their app certification workflow for the Windows Phone Store which will mean app certifications will be sped up tremendously, to as short as one hour only.

Microsoft also announced other improvements, including better notification of certification results via email, and also improved reporting for in-app purchases and more details on devices and user demographics.

Lastly Microsoft is also giving developers control over publication date and time of apps, for more controlled launches, and also the ability to easily remove and restore an app from the store if bugs are detected.
