Talking to someone at our user group this evening, I got the bad news that the Acropolis project will see no more CTP releases.  It seems that the project is now in the hands of the Patterns & Practices group.  From the Acropolis website :

"We are very excited to be entering the next phase of the project where we will begin to roll many of the Acropolis concepts into future versions of the .NET Framework for the desktop and Silverlight. Unfortunately, while we figure out exactly how to go about this, we have decided not to release any more Acropolis CTP's. We’re going to keep the current CTP bits available to allow you to continue prototyping and evaluating the Acropolis concepts. There will be no new functionality added to the Acropolis CTPs but we do hope that you will continue to provide feedback to us on what you like or don’t like."

and

"We are very excited to announce that we are going to be working closely with the Microsoft Patterns & Practices team to provide guidance (samples, applications blocks, patterns and so on) for building composite client applications for .NET Framework 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008. As part of that effort we want to engage with those that have been following the Acropolis project to ensure that this guidance meets your needs. Glenn Block, the Patterns & Practices client product manager, has much more information about the Composite Applications for Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5 project here."

They plan to release more info in the next couple months. 

I guess it would be a safe bet that I can scrap my Acropolis session at New England Code Camp 9.
