With the recent release of Visual FoxPro 9.0, the Visual FoxPro team at Microsoft is now working on a new project, code-named Sedna, that takes advantage of enhancements in Visual FoxPro 9.0. The primary goal of Sedna is to expand on the ability of Visual FoxPro-based solutions to better integrate with other Microsoft products and technologies.Features in Sedna will target Visual FoxPro interoperability with application components created by using Visual Studio 2005, the .NET Framework 2.0, and SQL Server 2005. Sedna will also help improve the ability for Visual FoxPro 9.0 solutions to be successfully deployed on the upcoming new Windows operating system Microsoft ® Windows ® Code Name "Longhorn." Sedna is currently scheduled to be released in the first half of 2007 and will require Visual FoxPro 9.0.As indicated in prior public statements, Microsoft does not plan to merge Visual FoxPro into Visual Studio .NET, nor are there plans to create a new Visual FoxPro .NET programming language. Visual FoxPro will remain stand-alone Win32 based, and will run on 64-bit Windows in 32-bit compatibility mode. For deploying Visual FoxPro solutions that use components based on Microsoft .NET, Sedna will provide improvements for those components using COM and .NET interoperability.To help developers who currently use or plan to program on the .NET platform, members of the Visual FoxPro team are also working on data programming for the Microsoft .NET platform.For more information about Visual FoxPro, including answers to Visual FoxPro FAQ, go to the Visual FoxPro Developer Center Web site at http://msdn.com/vfoxpro.
