Join the Visual DataFlex 2012 / 17.0 Alpha Testing Program

The Alpha test 17.0 software is feature complete in one area only: the new data dictionary improvements. Therefore, the purpose of releasing the Alpha release now, is to get user testing on the new data dictionary features underway while continuing with work on other enhancements in the release.

There are lots of new DD features that need testing and Data Access are keen to hear whether the new additions have altered the behavior of any current data dictionary feature or functionality.

This Alpha testing phase is your opportunity to see the direction in which Visual DataFlex is going and to provide your input. Your efforts and feedback will be greatly appreciated.

To find out more details about the Alpha testing and download information, join the Alpha testing program.
