MBS FileMaker Plug-in 6.1 for OS X/Windows

Nickenich, Germany - (March 8th, 2016) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 6.1 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 6.1 has been updated and now includes over 3700 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

New in this version is audio/video recording. You can start a recording session and enumerate devices. Select an audio and/or video device and start preview. For preview you can add a live picture to the FileMaker layout. Recording goes to a AVI file (Windows) or M4V file (Mac OS X).

For exporting videos and transcoding them, we have new functions. The AVExport functions allows to export videos in new format on Mac OS X, e.g to create smaller clips for mobile devices. Our QTExport functions are 32-bit only and uses QuickTime, but it can use special codecs which are not available for 64-bit.

The addressbook functions got support to query external ID for a person and find it later. The multi value functions got new convenience functions to query all identifiers, labels or values as lists.

For some things it is better to just evaluate a calculation now instead of waiting till a script executes. We now support evaluate for CURL progress and finish events, hotkey and menu actions. The trace feature has been updated to log evaluate calls with results.

Syntax Coloring for Mac has been updated to better verify whether variables are declared. We can now highlight If and Loop blocks on FileMaker 14 and newer. Of course you can choose your preferred colors. A bug is fixed for our asian users for the case you miss brackets.

We got new functions for our dictionary (assoziative array) and lists. You can now add/remove prefix/postfix for lists, create cross product or create a copy of a quick list. The dictionaries can now be exported as JSON, Text or XML. Our JSON handling got new functions to get values easier and set/query values based on a path in the object/array hierarchy.

For our SQL fans we now have InsertOrUpdateRecord variants which take one, two or three keys to identify the records to insert or update. For SQL connections we now propagate options better from connection to command level. This way you can set one option for all commands in a connection.

To get attention you can now flash the window in the Windows task bar or have the Dock icon jump on Mac. You can now easier calculate the distance between two coordinates you got from CLGeocoder to calculate distance between two points on earth. You can clear window focus or clear headers for a new email to send it again.

Finally we updated DynaPDF to version, openssl to version 1.0.2f and SQLite to version 3.11.0.
