This morning, in the OzFox keynote, Ken Levy stated that the release date for VFP 9.0 is scheduled for December 15. I'm not sure if this is new news (it didn't sound like it when Ken announced it), but it's the first time I've heard a public release date.
If you want to be able to get your hands on VFP as soon as it's released, you'll need to be an MSDN subscriber. It usually takes about 6 weeks after RTM for the full packaged product to hit the shelves.
I'm very excited. OzFox, organised by Craig Bailey, starts in Coogee tomorrow. There's a stellar line-up of speakers, some sensational sessions and even an X-Box room to help folks unwind.
I'm really looking forward to the keynote and hearing Ken Levy talk about VFP 9.0.
