I am very interested in using WPD in my .NET application, but I see that this code has not been updated since 2010.  I would love to see something that works, but this doesn't look complete.

You're right the library isn't complete due to a rewrite to make the library "full objects".

But same time I rewrite this lib, Ms has realased the Silverlight Native Extension which include the WPD API and I have never taken time to finish.

If you want/need I could add you to contributor on the project.

You are the first person to confirm my suspicions that Microsoft had something available for WPD.  I heard a rumor about Silverlight and WPD, but I couldn't find anything, so thank you for sharing that information with me.  I can agree that this changes my landscape, but my efforts were certainly not wasted time.  I am not sure how Silverlight would fit into my plans, as I am not working on a web site.
