When is the next update scheduled? What changes or upgrades are in plans for next release?
I'm appalled we missed this forum post from you Sunil!
The answer to your question is unfortunately complicated. Our primary focuses for 6.0 are:
1. A significant improvement in performance and scalability, particularly on mobile devices (via Xamarin) and other scenarios where only a single process is accessing the database. We've been working hard on this for over a year now - exploring major changes to the lower level parts of VistaDB (We tackled optimizer changes in 5.0) to rev performance.
2. Support for some form of async requests to make UI code that calls databases simpler.
We've been mum about it because our internal goal is to get to a 40% reduction in time for several key benchmark queries we run. We haven't gotten there yet so we've been trying alternate approaches to get there. Once we have some clear winners we'll publish out a roadmap and what you can expect.
