Will Vista support be upgraded to use the native Windows Filtering Platform or do you have a timetable when that might be rolled in?

WPF is relatively new and I would refrain from using it until Vista finally released along with final new WDK. The only WPF sample from beta WDK I seen so far was not able to send requests (NdisRequest) to the underlying NDIS miniports. May be it will be fixed (or even already fixed) but in the meantime it is a serious limitation.

So, now that Vista was released as well as it’s WDK, is the released WDK able to send requests (NdisRequest) to the underlying NDIS miniports? Reason I ask is that it would be possible then to not have to have a signed driver on x64 Vista, correct?

Please let me know the status of this.

Thanks.
