Visual FoxPro Code Names

Namespace: WIN_COM_API
"Toledo" was selected as a NAME of the next version of VFP after VFP7, not a name for the beta. Or, did I miss something? -- Vlad Grynchyshyn

Vlad, It's the codename for the next version. Nobody knows whether the next version will be version 8 or not (there was no VFP4). Traditionally, all Microsoft development projects have codenames during their development. The final name of the released software will be determined later. An example is Whistler Advanced Server. It's being called Whistler while it's in development. At one time it was thought to release it as Windows 2002 AS but now it's going to be called Windows .Net Advanced Server. -- Cindy Winegarden

There was a VFP4 beta.

I've added the Fox Plus and FoxPro 1.x - had the pleasure of working with all of them, including Fox Plus for Unix. -- Dragan Nedeljkovich

So I keep hearing word on the street about this next great Fox thing called Sedna. What the heck is it? I thought someone had just misspelled Sedona, but I see that it’s some sort of planetoid. I guess its origin is as much a mystery as its reference to VFP. I did see some scientist mention that it is definitely not “Planet X” so I guess we can be certain that Ken Levy is not involved, or is he??? I also see some sort of reference to VB which is kinda cool I guess.
