Advantage Database Server 9 Update
The Advantage 9 beta is underway and the release is just around the corner! We'd like to thank everyone who tested the beta and posted comments on the newsgroup. We received a lot of valuable feedback. Stay tuned for information on the release in March.

Support Status for Older Licenses and Transitioning Existing Advantage Licenses to Advantage 9
Advantage 9 will mark the End of Life for older versions of Advantage Database Server. However, for 6 months following the release of Advantage 9, customers who purchase new Advantage 9 licenses may also receive duplicate Advantage 8 licenses. This transition period is designed to allow current users the ability to fully test and integrate Advantage 9 without interrupting previously planned release cycles.
