  • Added Path.NativePathToFilemakerPath and Path.FilemakerPathToNativePath.
  • Added Trace function.
  • Added ShowURL function.
  • Added String.ReadTextFile.
  • Added Window.Resizable and Window.SetResizable.
  • Added Window.ShowsToolbarButton and Window.SetShowsToolbarButton to hide toolbar button on Mac OS X.
  • Added String.ReplaceNewline function.
  • Added Window.HideScrollbars and Window.ShowScrollbars function.
  • Added CGPSConverter.Convert function.
  • Fixed bug with Progress Dialog on Windows (progressbar jumped).
  • Fixed a bug with dpi value not used right for PDF image creation.
  • Window functions now only work for Mac with Cocoa. So we now require Filemaker 8.5 or newer on Mac for all functions touching windows.
  • Updated Form Utility.
  • Our Drag and Drop functions can't work on Windows as Filemaker overwrites plugin there.
  • WebView.RenderImage now really has image type optional.
  • Plugin Version function returns version now in format 2.4.0.xx where xx is the build number.
  • Now includes Intel only version of plugin. You need that for a Runtime in the Apple Mac App Store.
  • Graphicsmagick image references are now validated before being used. This avoids some trouble.
  • Graphicsmagick functions WriteTo*Container now check if compression works.
  • Window.SetCloseButton can now enable close button on runtimes on Windows.
  • RTF function now handles unicode characters.
  • Runtime solutions show first License dialog on first function call. (without license)
  • Registration dialog now shows plugin version and last called function.
  • Moving error handling so we return LastError to Filemaker instead of error message. So check lasterror of all plugin calls.
