Can you please let us know what is going to happen to this project?


Is the intention for the work here to end up in the next version of the .NET framework (4.5?) or will this remain a standalone release?


I think Microsoft are doing great work with .NET and the added value you get from all the "extras" on CodePlex etc but the big issue I have is that it is never clear whether code is live, supported and should be used or whether it is a constant rolling beta. The REST starter kit is a classic example. As far as I know there is still no write-up of what is happening to that kit and how the work being done here fits in with it and the .NET framework. When we are writing business software we need some assurance that we are using the right pieces of the puzzle!


Many thanks

I completely agree - any ideas on

A) how this will be released (standalone, .NET update) and

B) when it will be released

would be greatly helpful.
