I did a search and replace through the 3.7 code for "3.7"="3.8" and "37" = "38". I manually replaced everything that needed replacing (skipped guids) and it build and installed on VS2010/VS2013 and WiX 3.8 no problem. The project templates don't show up in VS2013 though.

This is actively being developed. In the WixWPF v3.8 release I plan to support using a single installer to install for Wix version 3.6, 3.7, and 3.8, and Visual Studio 2010, 2012, and 2013.

I just published a planned release with an alpha build of the WixWPF v3.8 installer. It uses a manual registration process with VS that should enable the templates in VS2013. NOTE: The documentation is not included in that alpha build.
