The card swipers are finally in production and I had an opportunity to use my MSDN Connection membership card in earnest. Caroline did a great job running the lounge (including getting it moved from the COLD tent where there was no connnectivity inside to the warm and wirelessly accessible exhibition hall). The lounge had an XBox and couches and was a great place to hang out and chat with members of the community.
Ken Levy, the VFP Product Manager, notes in his blog that there is a Visual FoxPro 9.0 Beta Component Refresh available. To quote Ken:
The Visual FoxPro 9.0 Beta Components Refresh download contains a refresh of various components and source code libraries delivered with the public Visual FoxPro 9.0 beta. It addresses issues in these components, adds refinements, and introduces some Visual FoxPro Foundation Class (FFC) classes not previously available. Updates include components and source code for some reporting system components, BROWSER.APP, BUILDER.APP, and ANCHOREDITOR.APP included in XSOURCE update. To apply the new Anchor property builder, simply run AnchorEditor.app once the files have been installed and it will register itself in FoxCode.dbf so that the new Anchor editor will be active when you are selected on the Anchor property in the Property Sheet
If you haven't had a play with the VFP 9.0 beta, it's well worth a look.
While we're on the subject of VFP 9.0, Craig Bailey got Eric Rudder to plug VFP in general and OzFox in particular while we were at dinner during Tech•Ed in Canberra last week. Check it out!
