What's the future of C++/CLI. From now it is a second class .NET language. It has no WPF direct support, etc...

We will continue investing in C++/CLI to enable developers to expose native C++ assets to the managed world and vice versa. We believe that pure .NET development is done best using a .NET focused language such as C# or VB. Investing in C++/CLI will be mainly in the native-managed interop areas.

Thanks,

IMO, it was second-class from the very beginning (e.g. it didn't support ASP.NET, etc). It's still a great tool to integrate native libs into managed apps, and that seems to be its primary niche.
