A multi user version of FoxBASE was shipped in 1985 and later that year the company shipped FoxBASE+ that added a number of new features and dBase III compatibility. However the original FoxBASE continued to be sold side by side with the plus version at the least until 1988. Note that the FoxBASE versions required a paid runtime if you wanted to distribute applications developed using the system.
