Nickenich, Germany - (November 17th, 2020) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 10.5 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, macOS, 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 10.5 has been updated and now includes over 6400 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:
If you are interested in Machine Learning, please check our new WindowsML functions for Windows. Beside the CoreML function on macOS, we now can do similar things on Windows like detecting the primary object of a picture.
For macOS we added a new feature to the calculation dialog to highlight matching brackets. If you put the cursor on a square, curly or regular bracket, the plugin looks for the matching bracket and provides a blue background for both. This usually ignores quoted text, except if your selection is within quoted text. Then we look for brackets in this text to help with e.g. SQL commands. For the inspector we got a zoom button to increase control sizes to 125%. Read them easier, although you may need to scroll with the mouse.
For our XL functions we got a new XL.CopyColumn function to copy columns in a sheet. Our new XL.Sheet.CellReadValue function can read a value from a cell and return it as value depending of the cell type. Use the new XL.Sheet.AddDataValidation and XL.Sheet.RemoveDataValidations functions to configure data validation.
DynaPDF got updated and now supports more ZUGFeRD 2.1 and Factur-X variants. The new DynaPDF.InsertBarcode function helps to place vector graphics barcodes on the PDF pages. We added a lot of new JSON based functions for DynaPDF to query content of documents like information on fonts, fields, bookmarks or annotations. For DynaPDF.Print we now support collate and copies options in the print dialog.
This version embraces JSON, so check the new JSON functions like Files.ListAsJSON to list files in a directory or CUPS functions to list printers and jobs.
We got a lot of new ReleaseAll functions to help cleanup objects. Use Matrix.CSVSplit to split CSV into a matrix object, check TextView functions to handle selection, use new list functions to find duplicate entries.
On macOS you can query app memory usage with SystemInfo.AppUsageStatistics function including how much memory FileMaker uses right now. The SystemInfo.CPULoad function tells you how much CPU is used currently.
Finally we updated CURL library to version 7.73.0, DynaPDF to 220.127.116.11, freetype to 2.10.4, LibXL to 3.9.2, OpenSSL to 1.1.1h, SQLAPI to 5.1.3b3 and Xcode to version 12.1.
See release notes for a complete list of changes.
