What is the current project status

With the upcoming release of SQL Azure Federation are you continuing to develop this library or will it be discontinued.

I think this project is still useful given the multi target strategy of SQL Azure and SQL Server.

Hi Nikolai,

Yes, I will be maintaining a shard library with support for SQL Azure Federation. It may a different library however; I am not sure yet. More information will come out in the next few months. 

Also I am building a significantly superior library available here: https://scale.bluesyntax.net. It provides support for additional scalability models and an online management interface that controls behavior of the library. However that library is not open source at this time.

Any updates? And will the next version also be open source?

Federations is currently a BETA release, as open source, and can be used immediately. It will be released as a supported release shortly on codeplex.
