I've got a preview of AVFP 4.0 up at:

http://70.174.154.175:443/avfpdemo4/default.aspx

The actual setup is not quite ready, though, so 4.0 is not yet downloadable. The old version is still available here in the Releases.

Key features of 4 are improved and streamlined design as well as the addition of true vfp web multi-threading using background threads. Also, things like Async processing and PDFs are far easier to use and deploy.

The addition of true multi-threading to ActiveVFP web applications for background processing is a first among web frameworks AFAIK. The ability to use threads instead of memory hogging EXE processes will allow for the best scalability and performance. Things like AJAX/Jquery applications will perform far better with a multi-threaded back end (courtesy of Calvin Hsia's mt class)

If possible, I'm shooting for after this weekend.  However the setup part may be tricky for VISTA so a safe bet would be within 2 weeks from now.
