ESB.NET is definitely active. Last release was on 9 November 2009 (see downloads).
For the ESB.Net Getting Started Guide, see the
Keystroke ESB.NET Services - ESB Overview and Getting Started Guide link in the downloads section.
We are working on the VS.NET 2010 version of the framework (Version 7 of ESB.NET), hence the quiet spell.
One of the first features to be released with it is the ability to load services inproc (similar to what you could do with COM+). This allows an improved development experience for those using ESB.NET as a general app server, as well as those
looking at embedding ESB.NET into their app servers or applications.
Other than that, the ESB.NET 7 framework has plans for basic diagramming (simulation, execution & configuration), as well as plans to deliver a Windows Azure transport to allow for cloud-hosted ESB.NET services. The aim is to support ESB.NET
clients to transparently switch between local & cloud hosted ESB.NET services, as well as the general ability to route requests to the cloud using the existing routing capabilities.
These features will be rolled out during the version 7 timeframes.
