The devlabs version of the project appears be coming to an end with plans to roll the functionality into VS vNext.

Thanks for the hint, Stuart!

But there have been some activities on this site here (see Source Code page) even in 2011.

Plus I would appreciate it to get some statements on my posts about possible bugs I found in Alpaca / CHESS.

Thanks Matthias, I've downloaded the latest changeset and it appears they have added VS2010 support as well as an updated version of Alpaca.  I agree it would be good to have an official update.

Is there any official updates for o VS2010 .

Staurt -  we are getting some build error in VS2010. Can you point, how did you make CHESS to  work with VS2010 / .net 4.0 framework developed components.
