(from foxblog but I can't ref its archives so...)
December 15!!!!! That appears to be the official release date for Visual
FoxPro 9.0, barring any unforseen showstoppers. Andew Coates, a former VFP
developer and now Microsoft employee, blogs
announced the date at OzFox
should be able to download the bits a few days after release (RTM in
Microsoft speak). If you absolutely must have it in the CD case, it
generally takes 6-8 weeks after RTM.
