Yesterday FileMaker announced the release of FileMaker 14. We, at myFMbutler, are really excited with this new release.

The new version of WebDirect is a real game changer. Not only does it bring FileMaker to other mobile platforms, such as the Android platform, but with the speed improvements it brings the experience of the desktop to the browser. The new Script Workspace and calculation window are one of the most striking changes in the FileMaker Pro client. However, the client has tons of small improvements and changes, which we will discover and enjoy the next few weeks.

64-bit: Help, the plug-ins don't load!

FileMaker Pro 14 is now a 64-bit application. This means that the plug-ins you use need to be 64-bit as wel. Most of our plug-ins are already 64-bit, but some are not ready yet and it takes more time to do the transition.

Does it mean you can't upgrade to FileMaker Pro 14 because one of your plug-ins is not 64-bit ready?
No, FileMaker has planned for this, and you can run or install your FileMaker Pro client in 32-bit mode too.

Check out our list of compatible plug-ins:

Plug-in 64-bit mode 32-bit mode
DoScript 4
DoSQL 2
Clip Manager Helper Plug-in
PrinterSwitch 2*
eID**
Clip Manager Bridge plug-in (Clip Manager 4)

* We expect an update of PrinterSwitch this summer.
** eID will be updated when there is better 64-bit support of the eID Middleware.

    PrinterSwitch 2.0.1 Update released

    Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

    We just released PrinterSwitch 2.0.1. This is mainly a bug fix update.

    What's new ?

    • Solves an issue where the "Print Setup" script step was not working properly
    • Fixed bug with FileMaker 11 record selection dialog - when using capture and restore, you can now determine whether to print the "Current record" or "all "Records being browsed"" by using "Specify print options" in the "Print" script step. When using a restore, PrinterSwitch will only use the FileMaker record selection data defined in the "Specify print options" - all other (FileMaker 11) printer information will be ignored
    • [Mac OS X] Fixed bug with manual printing and "Save as PDF". You can now create PDFs manually, even when PrinterSwitch has selected a printer. You can now even capture and restore "Save as PDF…", although the PDF name is not variable.
    • [Windows] Solved privilege related issues on Windows 7, Vista and Server 2008.
    • [Windows] Should no longer require changes to DEP settings
