Microsoft Microsoft has announced that it will not be releasing any new versions of its Visual FoxPro development software past Version 9.0, but the company will continue to support the technology through 2015. Instead of releasing new versions of FoxPro, Microsoft will release core portions of the FoxPro software to its CodePlex community development site, said Alan Griver, a group manager within the Microsoft Visual Studio team, which leads the FoxPro team.

Unless my english fails me

will release core portions != And now, they release it to the community

"We believe that by working with the community to continue to allow the FoxPro technology to be enhanced, that will help" developers who currently have projects written in FoxPro, Griver said.

Glad you feel the love, the only support besides their tech support I read about in that article is in migration to .NET by releasing, "core portions", that will interface to it.
