watching a webcast on Enterprise Library on pluralsight, wakened my interesst on it. I thought it might be a good idea to make use of it in future projects.

Now as I wanted to download Enterprise Library I realized, that currently active release is still from April 2010. This brings up the question: Is Enterprise Library a good choise, or is it slowly vanishing?

Enterprise Library is alive and well.  The current release is Microsoft Enterprise Library 5.0 Optional Update 1 which was released May 12, 2011.

The next version of Enterprise Library is currently in progress.  See Enterprise Library vNext - Simplified!.  You can also request features and see what is planned at uservoice: Enterprise Library 6.0 / Unity 3.0.
