It’s been a bit slow here on the releases, but things are hectic at Goya with lots of development going on all over the place. With FileMaker 19.3 out, and now with native support for the new Apple M1 processor, plus a new Ubuntu release for FileMaker Server, there’s a need for a new BE plugin. And I can deliver :

This isn’t a final 4.2 release, that will come shortly, but it passes all our tests and is just waiting on some time out in real testing to make sure there’s nothing we’ve missed. Please contact us if you notice anything.
What is a gz file?
gz is just another compression format, but it has the advantage of it being the internal compression format for FileMaker container fields. So you can insert a plugin into a container field using the insert file step, and select a .gz file and it will come in as uncompressed. So this means you can have a Mac plugin in windows, without breaking the Mac folder/bundle format.
What happened to centos?
FileMaker Server for linux was a centos version of linux, but is now ubuntu, and so we’re only building for a single platform. v4.1.4 will run on centos and 4.2 and later will be ubuntu only.
What are the changes?
There are a lot, all the details, as always are in GitHub : https://github.com/GoyaPtyLtd/BaseElements-Plugin/blob/4.2/CHANGE_LOG
Lots of minor fixes and changes, some new functions, and new additions to other functions. We also spent a lot of time looking for memory leaks with this version, to try to track down a server issue, so there’s a lot of fixes there. If you’ve ever had a previous memory/crash issue with BE, I’d recommend trying this one.
