MBS FileMaker Plugin 6.2 for OS X/Windows

Nickenich, Germany - (May 24th, 2016) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 6.2 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 6.2 has been updated and now includes over 3900 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

Our latest plugin has been tested and optimized for latest FileMaker 15 release. While we support FileMaker 15 since version 6.0 already, a few issues have been found and fixed when using FileMaker 15. Finally as FileMaker 15 now runs 64-bit on Mac, we fixed a few issues related to 64-bit, too.

We got new functions for RSA signatures and encryption. You can generate a new private key and extract the public key. Using the private key you can sign some data and later check signature with public key. For encryption you can use either private or public key to encrypt. On the other side you decrypt using the other key. This way you can encrypt on one side using private key and decrypt on other side with public key.

Our new Events functions allow you to query calendars on Mac OS X for events and reminders. You can create, modify and delete entries as needed. Those new functions are 64-bit only. For 32-bit you can use existing Calendar functions.

For SQL we got new functions to convert BLOB to container value. New XML functions allow you to format XML or create a canonical version.

Our Mac Audio and Video recording can now provide a still photo on Mac. And the video exporter can merge several videos into one file while exporting.

The webviewer may block loading websites with invalid SSL certificate. We can put some hosts in the white list to load the website anyway. As the Webviewer on Windows doesn't accept the @ key with some keyboard layouts (e.g. German), we got a new function to send key events to Webviewer. This way you can send key strokes to Webviewer and press @ for the user if needed, including with @ as hotkey.

Our DynaPDF users can now extract text of only a rectangle part of the page. Our difference showing feature for PDF pages now handles transparent areas and recognizes smaller changes. You can define replacement ICC profiles for PDF/A creation.

Our dialog functions got updated to show an icon on Windows. We added options for timeout and custom buttons. The parent window is now set for Windows, so the FileMaker window stays behind the dialog.

The print dialog modifications on Mac OS X can now set options for copies, first/last/all pages. You can query last options as XML and set/get any options by name.

When working with files and folders, we can now query the size of a folder efficiently. On Mac we can set/get the Finder comment and the label color.

We also have improved list functions, query scrolling position, more CURL options, you can automatically click buttons or press keys with delay.

Finally we updated DynaPDF to version, libJPEG auf 9b, SQLAPI++ auf 4.1.9, libSSH auf 1.7.0, CURL auf 7.47.1, OpenSSL to version 1.0.2f and SQLite to version 3.13.0.
