A quick note to let everyone know about a minor update to our free open source FileMaker plugin. This updates the version number to 1.2.1 and includes a fix for extra characters appearing at the end of the BE_ExecuteShellCommand function. This would have resulted in the commands not working or doing strange things.

In our case we are using this to launch AppleScripting of the FileMaker user interface in RefreshFM. So although it didn’t show on our test or development machines we quickly started to see reports of this after launch. We’ll have an updated RefreshFM version out very soon with the new plugin and some more features to boot.

As usual the downloads are available for Mac and Windows and the 1.2.1 source code is already available.
