  • Well it's still on the list of available exams:-

     - so the answer to your question appears to be yes.

  • It depends on what you mean by "valid". This certification doesn't expire, so if you have passed the exam it is still "valid" for you. But it was retired some time ago, so it is not "valid" in the sense that you can no longer take the 70-505 exam.

    If you wish to get certified on desktop applications, you can still take 70-511 (based on framework 4.0 instead of 3.5 and with a greater emphasis on WPF instead of Winforms). But you need to hurry up, because this one is also going to be retired shortly.
