The future of CachedAssemblyCatalog

I'm very interested in the CachedAssemblyCatalog introduced in the samples provided in older versions of MEF. I'd like to know what are the plans regarding this very neat and useful feature. Is it scheduled to become an integral part of MEF anytime soon, or at all?

I'd also like to know if this code is considered stable and if there's anything I should know if I'm planning to use this code in production. I also noticed that the caching sample no longer appears in the currently available samples, and I was wondering what's the reason for that.

Hi - we haven't been actively maintaining this sample, and don't consider it stable. Hopefully it is of some use to you, but we don't have any plan to update or further develop it.
