[ANN] MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.2 - More than 4600 Functions In One Plugin

Christian Schmitz-2

Nickenich, Germany - (May 15th, 2017) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased
to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.2 for macOS, iOS, Linux and 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, iOS 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 7.2 has been updated
and now includes over 4600 different functions, and the versatile plugin has
gained more new functions:

Our new plugin is optimized for FileMaker 16 and provides all the usual
features in the latest version of FileMaker. The script workspace again shows
the syntax highlighting and allows to search scripts. We added a new MBS
script step, so you can easily use plugin functions in your scripts. Of course
you can continue with using Set Variable as before and keep compatible to
FileMaker 15. You can even yourself define custom script steps in FileMaker
using expressions to evaluate with our plugin.

Included with the new plugin version is a plugin for iOS. This is a brand new
plugin and allows you to try over 2000 of our functions already for your own
solutions built using the FileMaker iOS SDK. We will need to check in the next
months how iOS performs and which functions can help you the most. Most of the
Webviewer functions already work on iOS, including the preferences functions
to enable the developer extras.

For macOS we added a new preferences dialog. There you can toggle all the
enhancements we offer for the FileMaker script workspace. And you can enter
your license key for storing it in the preferences file with FileMaker. In the
script workspace we added new zoom controls, so you can increase font size for
your scripts. For popupmenu controls in FileMaker, you can now copy the values
via our contextual menus. For calculation dialogs, you can now define a
minimum font size, so you easier read them when presenting.

For Windows you can now send emails via the local email client application.
This includes sending emails with attachments via Outlook or Thunderbird.
Using our new Registry functions you can add, edit and delete registry entries
directly from FileMaker.

For CURL we have new methods to setup queries to Amazon Webservices and we
provide an example for AWS S3 download and upload. Our plugin provides the
authentication based on AWS4-HMAC-SHA256 for the queries, so you can easily
integrate several amazon services. With new socket type functions, you can now
let CURL connect to an IP and use the connection like any other socket with
reading and writing data. CURL encapsulates all the IP protocols (IPv4 and
IPv6), proxies and SSL options for you. Finally we allow you to use the system
root certificates on macOS and Windows for SSL verification.

For our Windows users we added new WindowsUserNotification functions to show
user notifications on Windows 8 and newer. A notification can show a picture
and several text lines to notify user about an event when your app runs in
For macOS we provide similar features using UserNotification functions.

You can now show the character palette to enter emojis, set/get valuelists as
xml from/to clipboard (see CTs FileMakerSnippetStorage.fmp12), new iOSDevice
functions, better barcode creation, better Speak command and more.

Finally we updated LibXL to version 3.8.0, OpenSSL to 1.1.0e and 1.0.2k, SQLAPI
to 4.1.11, SQLite to 3.18.0, DynaPDF to and Xcode to 8.3.2.
