Stealth Upgrading of support

Looks like Rick found an update that hasn’t been shared widely: Microsoft has extended the Support Lifecycle for VFP up to 2015 now.

As he notes, that’s only one year before Visual Studio 2005 apps expire. Now, FoxPro (and other) developers have been building great applications in the past without real regard to the support lifecycle. But it started becoming a talking point when Microsoft started advertising it. Since Sedna seems like it’s going to be more of a download, rather than a full separate product, it will be interesting to see if this date changes anytime soon. If ever a page needed an RSS feed, this one likely does.
