Now that the DirectX Effects framework has been axed, are there any other similar frameworks out there ? I now there's Nvidia CGFX, but does that work with the latest DirectX versions ? I'd rather not start writing my own from scratch.

Actualy, writing your own is much more efficent in my opinion. and besides you get to chose exactly how it should be working! –  Tordin Feb 8 '13 at 15:41
Unless you don't know how to do it either because your programming skills are fairly low or you are a environment designer working with some kind of engine where you don't have to dwell deeper than 3 levels in GUI. –  joltmode Feb 8 '13 at 16:56
The latest version of Cg does say it supports Direct3D 11, including tessellation shaders. It doesn't appear to support compute shaders though. I haven't used it recently myself so I can't say how complete its support actually is. –  Nathan Reed Feb 8 '13 at 19:49
Under D3D10/11 it's actually easier and clearer to just use the raw API (not to mention less prone to perf problems from bad cbuffer usage). –  Jimmy Shelter Feb 9 '13 at 2:02
