Nickenich, Germany - (September 12th, 2023) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 13.4 for Claris FileMaker for macOS, iOS, Linux and Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for Claris FileMaker produce line. As the leading database management solution for Windows, macOS, iOS and the web, the Claris FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 13.4 has been updated and now includes over 7100 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:
Our new Phidget functions allow you to connect to devices from Phidgets Inc. directly from FileMaker, if you like to automate something with using phidget devices. This includes: analog or digital input or outputs, servo motors, touch sensors, RFID, GPS, gyroscope, magnetometer, spatial sensor, temperature sensor, frequency counter, IR, PH sensor, LCD, distance sensor, light sensor, pressure sensor, sound sensor, humidity sensor and more. Create a device object, set properties and connect. Then get and set properties and register script triggers.
We updated our SSL support for our MongoDB functions. We switched to using OpenSSL as the transport encryption library for the MongoDB library for macOS and iOS. The MongoDB.SSLLibrary function tells you which SSL library is in use. You can use MongoDB.SetSSLOptions function to specify SSL options in addition to putting them into the connection string. To check about possible reasons for connection problems, we got a new trace logging functionality with MongoDB.IsTracing and MongoDB.Trace functions. And by regularly calling MongoDB.Ping function you can check whether the connection is alive and keep it open.
For macOS we have a couple of functions to check the state of cloud hosted files, e.g. in iCloud or Dropbox. You can query the state with Files.UbiquitousItemStatus function. Then you can request a download with Files.StartDownloadingUbiquitousItem function or free local disk space with Files.EvictUbiquitousItem function. Calendars, events and sources can now be queried as JSON objects.
DynaPDF can now delete DPart nodes and skip DPart data on importing. The DynaPDF.RenderPage function can take the ForceInterpolation flag and DynaPDF.SaveAndSignFileExt1 got updated with a new useDetached parameter.
The XML.InsertRecords function can insert records with data from XML, we got new Base32 encoding and decoding functions, the CURL.ProcessRelativeURL function can help to expand relative URLs and improved JSON.Import function to handle arrays in arrays. The SerialPort.OpenPath function can open paths to special devices like pipes.
Finally we updated curl to version 8.2.1, DynaPDF to 188.8.131.52, SQLAPI to 5.2.5 and SQLite to version 3.43.1.
