MBS FileMaker Plugin 4.2 for OS X/Windows - More than 2500 Functions In One Plugin

Nickenich, Germany - (June 24th, 2014) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 4.2 for Mac OS X or Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for FileMaker Pro. As the leading database management solution for Windows, Mac, and the web, the FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 4.2 has been updated and now includes over 2500 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

For the FileMaker script editor the plugin now provides on Mac OS X a new button to copy scripts as formatted text. This allows you to easily copy and paste a script in the FileMaker forums or an email. If you have a text editor to compare text like TextWrangler, you can now use it to compare two versions of a script. Or even put your scripts as text into a version control system to track changes.

Our new Midi functions can find Midi devices on both Mac OS X and Windows. You can connect to a devices including virtual sources or destinations. Over the connection you can send Midi notes or receive Midi events.

If you need to have an user pick an item from a list, you can now use our new ListDialog functions. Fill the list with some values, show the dialog and query what the user chose. Multiple selection and preselection is possible. Currently Mac OS X only.

For the case you work often with lists of elements, we now have a couple of list related functions. You can compare lists, remove duplicates, sort lists or remove empty items.

As part of this update, we also updated a couple of libraries including DynaPDF, GraphicsMagick, OpenSSL and CURL. We also got a few more DynaPDF functions, improvements for AppleScript, Audit, GraphicsMagick and JSON.
