[01] FileMaker’s Brave New World
You have probably heard the incredible news by now. FileMaker Inc. recently announced FileMaker Pro 7. This new version will set the entire community ablaze with opportunity. Needless to say, we will have some interesting announcements to make in the near future. Soon, you will see some new and updated products and services from us.
In our opinion, while FileMaker Pro has always been a good tool for building database systems, this new version is 1000 times better.

Welcome to the brave new world!

[03] Analyzer 4.0 beta – Speed and precision like no other
Analyzer 4.0 coupled with FileMaker Pro 7 will keep your solutions on the fast track.

Analyzer 4.0 will make life easier during all stages of migration and development. FileMaker Pro 7 is a monumental upgrade. Analyzer 4.0 is the perfect FileMaker Pro assistant. It saves you time by finding scripts that use one field, layouts on which the field resides, and much more!

It alerts you to common problems, and tells you what has changed from one version of your solution to the next. Don’t spend hours wading through scripts and calculations, when Analyzer can search them for you.

FileMaker Pro 7 provides many new exciting possibilities. We improved Analyzer 4.0 to help you achieve results faster.
We will be announcing a beta soon. Sign up today, and we will notify you as soon as the beta is available.

[04] Events 4.0 – The next powerful wave!
Events 4.0 integrated with FileMaker Pro 7 will put time on your side.

FileMaker Pro 7 is a monumental upgrade. Our new Events 4.0 plug-in has many impressive improvements that take advantage of all the benefits of FileMaker Pro 7. Together, so much more is possible.

In addition to new features, Events 4.0 does everything it did before, only it’s faster and much easier to implement.
Creating triggers to perform automatic tasks in the background is a snap. Imagine a trigger that automatically logs record edits, views, adds, and deletes. Add drag and drop functionality to your interfaces. Set and pass an unlimited number of tokens with each triggered event.

Now, Events 4.0 can also send emails at any scheduled time or when a trigger is activated. This is just the beginning of what can be done.
