What is the current status for this project? I noticed the last update was done last year (2010). Is there a roadmap for additional changes?

thanks for such great framework.

Haven't you heard? Microsoft killed off WPF and Silverlight quite a while ago. While still supported as a legacy, no enhancements or new development is planned. Using it on a new project would be risky for anything other than short term, something no hospital would dare consider (seeing how most are still running XP).

http://www.riagenic.com/  Was one of the original designers at Microsoft. He doesn't have anything good to say about the current state of this technology.
