I ask because it says the last release was 0.9 in August 2006. Not sure I want to build a lot if no one is working on it. OTOH, does it need more development? thank you.

There is a lot of work on it - it just doesn't show up in the release tab. ;)

Since this is a library, I would expect most developers don't mind grabbing the source and building it along with their project. It's easy to do. If you look at the Source Code tab, you'll notice recent commits and even contribs as patches. If you look at the discussions, you'll observe participation by seasoned developers, GIS experts as well as the contributors - a good sign of project health.

Currently, much effort is being focused on v2.0, since it contains essential feautres like query selection, WPF support, and updatable data sources, so getting v0.9 to v1.0 has been a long road. Essentially, v0.9 is a 1.0 release. We're just not good at release managment.
