Old good Foxpro v2.0 is a text-based procedural programming language and RDBMS for MS-DOS, MS Windows, Macintosh and UNIX etc. Next version is called Visual FoxPro which is an object-oriented programming language and RDBMS for MS Windows only.
Now Microsoft has announced that it will not be releasing any new versions of its Visual FoxPro development software past Version 9.0, but the company will continue to support the technology through 2015.
Instead of releasing new versions of FoxPro, Microsoft will release core portions of the FoxPro software to its CodePlex community development site, said Alan Griver, a group manager within the Microsoft Visual Studio team, which leads the FoxPro team. You can expect to see the Sedna code on CodePlex sometime before the end of summer 2007.
