There's a lot to be excited about here at FarPoint. We have recently released Spread for Windows Forms version 4, and Spread for BizTalk version 2. Next up is Spread for ASP.NET version 4 (formerly known as Spread for Web Forms). Also, there has been quite a buzz around Spread for SharePoint, and it is due for release very soon.

In this issue, we will tell you how you can now get trained in Spread for Windows Forms or Spread for ASP.NET. Also, for those of you COM developers, we have heard your voices and read your emails and forums posts; you will be happy to know that a Spread 8 is indeed on the way, we will have more on this in the next issue, or you can contact us at FPSales@FarPointSpread.com if you would like to be updated or are interested in more information about any of these products.
