Hi,
A few weeks ago I downloaded a CTP version of the Microsoft Blueprint Manager from http://www.codeplex.com/blueprints. But right now, this link is not available anymore. MSDN articles are still referring to it.. Has Microsoft discontinued developemnt of MS Blueprints?

Thanks,

Hi,

in short - I have no idea. I was really surprised to hear that the codeplex project has been pulled - it was news to me! I've send a couple of emails to Michael Leyman - the guy in charge of the project - asking what the roadmap is and when we could expect the next release (as I had raised a large number of bugs) - but have had no replies at all. I'll see if I can get any more info.

Regards,

Howard

Any word on this?  I heard there was a reorg and the people on this project were pulled into patterns & practices (a good thing!), but I can't find out what happened to Blueprints.

I heard the same. I've asked a few people and none have come back with a comment. I'm waiting for people to catch up on mail after TechEd - and will post anything as soon as I hear. I really hope it isn't dead in the water.
