**It seems that Vision Pace is out of business.**
Latest version is VMP(2014.02.17.03) released 21 March 2014
[2007.03.31] On April 6, 2006, Art Bergquist took over maintenance of VMP and, since then, has posted numerous bug fixes and enhancements.
[2005.11.11] I have seen questions on the future of VMP. As per my experience as a very satisfied customer, I can attest that the quality of support on the VMP board is superb and continues to help daily since Drew's passing.

As per future development/enhancements, Vision Pace has not yet decided. Russ has personally met with users at the last SWFox Conference and has said he'll continue talking to the user community before deciding what to do going forward. Even without Drew and even if they ever decide to stop future development, VMP is still a great product that I would not hesitate to purchase today. It has more features than I'll ever need as it is already. -- Alex Feldstein
Visionpace is now offering online update and user group meetings for VMP users, craftily called Webinars. The presentation and audio is recorded and can be played back at a later time (obviously minus the benefit of live interaction that the original offers). Visual Maxframe Webinar Info
Max Teach was also offered after the GLGDW in October 2003.

Max Teach was also offered at the Miami DevCon in 2000.
On August 26, 1999, in conjunction with the 3rd Annual Southern California Visual FoxPro Conference, the first ever one-day conference for VMP developers was held.

Max Teach was a success. Drew Speedie was the main speaker, assisted by seasoned Visual Max Frame Professional developers Art Bergquist and Larry Miller. New features of version 4.0, plus two new developer's utilities and a host of new examples were shown.
Version 4.0 was released on 6/4/99, and contained many new features, most notably a comprehensive user security system that allows any form, control, menu item, program, etc. to be secured relative to the current user via group membership and manual override.
