Changed CURL.OpenInputFile to also set OptionInputFileSize for the file.
Removed CURL.SetOptionInFileLarge, CURL.SetOptionMaxFileSizeLarge, CURL.SetOptionPostFieldSizeLarge and CURL.SetOptionResumeFromLarge. The existing functions without large now also handle 64bit integers, so you don't need extra functions here.
Added option to ServerSocket.Start so it works with Filemaker Go.
Improved twain image acquire to work better on feeders.
Added Twain.GetAutomaticBorderDetection, Twain.GetAutomaticRotate, Twain.SetAutomaticBorderDetection and Twain.SetAutomaticRotate.
Added Hash.RandomHexString function.
Added Notification.List and Notification.Unlisten.
Added Hash.PBKDF2.HMAC function.
Fixed SerialPort.ReadByte to accept 2 instead of 3 parameters.
Added Plugin.Path function.
Changed a couple of Mac functions to return Mac error number and some error description instead of just "Invalid Path".
From 6th to 8th June 2013, you can come to Berlin for the PauseOnError conference. A meeting of Filemaker developers from all over Europe and in English.
MBS is now a sponsor and if you are not going to Salzburg or San Diego anyway, you could still join this conference in Berlin. Especially if you are from Europe and like to talk about our plugins with us.
We'll be there and make two presentations. First one about the MBS Filemaker plugin and a second one is about Mac goodies like Syntax Coloring, smaller Runtimes and Gatekeeper.
If you prefer a German conference, maybe you better go to the Filemaker Konferenz in Salzburg in October from 17th to 19th. Or come to San Diego from August 12th to 15th for the Filemaker DevCon 2013.
Nickenich, Germany - MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 3.2 for Mac OS X or 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, 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 3.2 has been updated and now includes 1640 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more than 200 new functions:
Our new socket functions allow direct network access via TCP and UDP. You can connect directly to another computer and send and receive data. For HTTP / FTP connections we have CURL functions that handle all the protocol details for you. But for other protocols such as the MLLP protocol for exchanging data with medical applications, the new socket functions are the way to go.
We also offer server socket functions. Thus, a FileMaker instance can answer as a server requests from other instances. For example you can run SQL queries, evaluate expressions and start scripts. This way you can trigger a trigger a script on another Filemaker instance.
New hash functions that allow you to generate secure hashes. You can choose between MD5, SHA1, SHA256, and SHA512. With SHA1 HMAC you can safely authenticate with various web services. Take a look on the oAuth example for posting on Twitter from FileMaker.
With the runTask functions, you can launch programs and pass parameters. You can see if the program is still running and quit it if needed. In Windows, you can also print a document this way or open a folder in Explorer.
For the other plugin parts we have a lot of little improvements. Especially for scanning via Twain, generating PDFs with DynaPDF and the IKSlideShow functions.
For more details, please check the release notes. Take the time to check out the plugin and try the more than 190 example projects. Maybe you get some ideas on how to use the plugin in your solutions.
Using MBS Plugin 3.2pr7 and newer you can access the address book on Mac OS X from Filemaker. You can query, create and edit records, both groups and people. So in this article we show you how to do certain tasks.
We'd like to explain you a few basic tasks, so you can easily get started and add addressbook features to your solution. Especially doing some level of synchronization, so users can change an address on their iPhone in the contacts app and your solution notices that change.
There is a little change coming for our plugins with DynaPDF. If you have a DynaPDF license for use with either Real Studio or Filemaker plugin, you can soon use the license key enabled for MBS Plugins with any plugin.
So if you buy a DynaPDF license for one of our plugins, you can also use this key with next release in the other plugins.
For Xojo, Real Studio and Filemaker, just one key.
