  • Deprecated - not really, there will always be a need for a language like C++/CLI that's good for interop things as long as .NET exists.

    Updated - unlikely, the Visual C++ team is busy these days with implementing features from the new C++ standard. Besides, there's not much to update. There are a few new native C++ features that would be nice to work in C++/CLI too (lambdas for example) but otherwise C++/CLI is pretty much "complete".

  • C++/CLI is not deprecated.

    The Visual C++ team invested in C++/CLI Intellisense in Visual Studio 2012; a feature that was cut from Visual Studio 2010.
