UPDATE: 02-16-2009 – Please see this article announcing a change in policy by Microsoft which seems to say that FRX will continue to be supported.
Sage Software has been advised that Microsoft has made a decision against further enhancement or development of their FRx reporting software beyond version 6.7. Microsoft agreed to continue supporting the current version of FRx through June 2011, thereby enabling Sage Software adequate opportunity to evaluate suitable alternatives. As a part of the evaluation process, Sage Software will also assess Microsoft’s Management Reporter; Management Reporter has been described as the next generation FRx and is equipped with full migration capability.
