We got to hear about the new features coming in version 10. I can't say too much about it now, but there are some pretty cool things in there.
They have had a first beta internally for a couple of months now and beta 2 was launched to partners at the conference (and downloaded by me a few minutes later!)
There should be a public beta release in and around June - but that will depend on how beta 2 goes. Release in the autumn.
This is the longest beta cycle that QlikView have ever run. In fact, they are shortly going to upgrade all their own internal systems (including demo.qlikview.com) to version 10 - really eating their own dog food. Expect version 10 to be the most stable new release ever.
