VFP: Visual FoxPro Sedna release – biggest launch ever!

V

TechCrunch went into meltdown with the news. CNN covered it live. And Super Tuesday has been rescheduled to cope with the disruption…

Amazingly though, in what I can only imagine is an embarrassing oversight, there was no press release about it.

In possibly the tiniest launch announcement I've ever seen (you'll need hours to read through this comprehensive overview – NOT), Microsoft has finally (on 25 Jan) released Sedna – the add-on to Visual FoxPro.

Better than nothing I guess :-)

Actually I'm pretty excited about having a play with this later tonight.

Craig Boyd has the details on Sedna being added to VFPx. He also reminds us about the DBi controls that can be downloaded.

Rick Schummer has a discussion of whether SP2 is required (make sure you read the comments as well).

  • OMG!

    Milind must of agonised over the various drafts before settling on the press release. Looking at the frequency of news coming out from the VFP team it would appear he had time to put together something with more substance than a link to the help file.

    I just hope he stuck to his guns on the BIG issues and didn’t sell out to Corp Marketing with the release…too much

    Well done

  • When I navigated to the announcement page an ad for Silverlight came up, obscuring the Sedna announcement.

    Pretty much sums it up!

  • Yes, ever since the Sedna launch, I’ve had customers clamoring for me to do new work for them based on Sedna.

    I asked them how they even knew about it and they said they saw it on ESPN-8 (the Ocho). Who knew?

    When the word gets out, it can’t be stopped and it’s so widespread.
