We’ve finalised the set of features to be included in the next update to our free FileMaker plugin. This one includes :

  • Changes to the SQL library to work with the new SQL API on FileMaker Pro 11 and later. This has more options and allows for a more robust feature set from now on.
  • Changed the url functions to do HTTPS as well as HTTP.
  • Two new functions to get and set preferences inside files in the user’s folder.
  • HTTP Post on top of the HTTP Get function. Plus additional functionality with this to set and retrieve headers and other result codes.
  • An Open file function.
  • Ability to zip and unzip files from within FileMaker.
  • An optional starting folder for the select file and select folder functions.
  • An encoding function to specify the encoding type, you can select any of these : http://www.gnu.org/software/libiconv/
  • Improved error handling
  • Base64 encoding and decoding

You can download 1.3 beta 1 for Mac and Windows.
