In addition, articles about the VFP 9.0 beta will be included in the June issue of FoxTalk 2.0 and the July issue of FoxPro Advisor, both to be mailed out in June just after the release of the public VFP 9.0 beta. I’ve already started working with Markus Egger and Rod Paddock on the special CoDe Focus issue on Visual FoxPro 9.0 which due out this fall.
