I am a consultant with Microsoft Enterprise Services and we are doing a lot more work with customer around LINQ, XML, XSD and Java Web Services. Right about now would have been a great time to leverage LINQ to XSD so that we could have strong typing to query SOAP returned by Java Web Services. What is the status of the LINQ to XSD project. Do we need to build something ourselves for customers or is there something in the works. It does not look good to customers - it looks like a viable technology has stalled.

Thank you for your feedback. LINQ to XSD Alpha 0.2 is still the latest version. We are not doing any active development on LINQ to XSD and there are no plans for product release. If you would like to use the Alpha, please keep in mind that it is a very early preview release and may not be suitable for deployment in production applications.

Yeah - that is what I am doing now; i just needed to know how much effort to put into writing a really robust design. We have to be very agile in providing solutions to our MCS customers. Thanks for the inpput.

Dunno about LINQ-to-XSD (all we saw was a pre-alpha really, so I wouldn't expect a final anytime soon), but you can perfectly well use xsd.exe to generate classes from a schema, and walk the resulting graph using LINQ.
