Does development continue in ATL for Visual Studio/C++ 2022? If writing a new service on native OS, is this technology a preferred recommendation?
Yes, ATL is supported in visual studio 2022. It continues to be an effective tool for working with COM in C++.
Having said that, without knowing more about what you mean by "a new service on native OS" I can't suggest whether or not ATL would be suitable in your circumstance.
In Visual Studio 2017 and later, MFC and ATL are optional sub-components under the Desktop development with C++ workload in the Visual Studio Installer program. You can install ATL support without MFC, or combined MFC and ATL support (MFC depends on ATL).
