I'm sort of routinely posting WCF status updates here. This month, the 
outcomes are not much so far, though:

     - Rework on RESTful binding (System.ServiceModel.Web). JSON-based
       Web binding stack is updated to work like .NET 3.5 SP1.

     - Lots of HTTP channel listener stabilization work.

     - svcutil -moonlight got some fixes to properly use its derived
       ChannelBase type.

There is a couple of ongoing work:

     - Right now I am in the middle of ASP.NET integration fixes.
     - WebScriptServiceHostFactory and ASP.NET AJAX integration support.
       Conceptually it can generate Javascript proxy when ASP.NET is not
       involved, but it anyways depends on ASP.NET fixes for above.

After ASP.NET AJAX support is done (I'm not sure if it will really work
soon though), the next task on the stack is WSDL support enhancement.
To get those things working, I also have to fix a couple of issues
in configuration land (I don't really love them, doh).

For WSDL stuff, there are two sides of work:

     - WsdlImporter/ServiceContractGenerator improvements. It is
       required for Moonlight (and possibly MonoTouch) development in
     - WsdlExporter improvements. It is required for hosting WCF
       services on xsp2 and get WSDL.

I'll probably work on both at a hand to ease bugfixes themselves.
