Not to my knowledge. Still works. Not sure what new developments you want.

There are still the same working solutions available. You can find them at

As described in my original post, you can use Gmail for email instead of Hotmail, but you can't use Gmail to sync your contacts & calendar with Outlook, unless you use a 3rd party program like Gsyncit. I primarily use Gmail for email, but Hotmail to sync contacts & calendar.

From what I can tell, the iPhone also doesn't play nice with Outlook. (Google & Apple want everyone to use their office software solutions instead of Microsoft Office, so they don't want to make it easy to stay synced with Outlook.) For the iPhone I think you have to plug into your PC/Mac and sync through iTunes or use 3rd party software for true cloud-based sync (like this Hotmail solution enables).
