Microsoft Ships February CTP of 'Sedna'

Microsoft announced it is shipping the latest preview of its upcoming Visual FoxPro "Sedna" project.

The project, which aims to provide Visual FoxPro (VFP) 9 interoperability with application components created using Visual Studio 2005, .NET Framework 2.0 and SQL Server 2005, began its fourth community technology preview (CTP) testing last week.

The project’s codename, Sedna, is derived from a recently discovered and very distant celestial object.

Simultaneously, Microsoft is also making VFP 9 Service Pack 2 February CTP available. In addition to fixes to the core product, SP2 contains enhancements to reporting features, according to Microsoft statements.

Sedna, which is set to be released in the first half of the year, will require VFP 9.

The Sedna February CTP and the VFP 9 SP2 CTP are available here.
