Microsoft Releases Visual FoxPro 8.0

February 1, 2003: The Visual FoxPro Team at Microsoft is very excited to announce that Visual FoxPro 8.0 was completed and released to manufacturing (RTM) on January 31st, 2003. The Visual FoxPro team was hoping to release Visual FoxPro 8.0 in early January, but we needed the extra time to ensure we released the most stable version of Visual FoxPro yet, even more solid than Visual FoxPro 7.0 with Service Pack 1. Visual FoxPro 8.0 is the most feature rich release of Visual FoxPro since version 3.0. I'd like to include some details about Visual FoxPro 8.0, related announcements, and upcoming activities around the release.

Visual FoxPro 8.0 is fully compatible with previous versions of Visual FoxPro and includes everything needed to write, build, and test great data-centric applications. Product highlights in Visual FoxPro 8.0 include structured error handling, Cursor Adapter class for universal data access, new auto-increment support for data tables, Windows XP Themes support, new base classes and controls, new GDI+ image support, new event binding for objects, full hierarchical support, new XML Web services features, updated OLE DB provider, improved development productivity, and new and improved compatibility with Visual Studio .NET and SQL Server 2000.
