FileMaker Pro 8.5 launches

Can now integrate live web data

FileMaker has announced the latest version of its database application, FileMaker Pro.

FileMaker Pro 8.5 for Windows and Mac OS X now carries support for integrating live web data – meaning a web page can be added to a record in a database.

"Delivering web data on demand continues our tradition of setting new standards in the database market," said FileMaker president Dominique Goupil. "We expect to reignite the workgroup database category with this breakthrough benefit."

The revamped product range includes FileMaker Pro 8.5, FileMaker Pro 8.5 Advanced, FileMaker Server 8.0v4 and FileMaker Server 8.0v4 Advanced.

A Learning Center feature appears in this iteration of the databasing product. Learning Center includes free video tutorials, how-to guides and other resources to help users learn the application.

The software has also seen a series of smaller enhancements, including new object and scripting capabilities: Layout Object Names, Go to Object script steps, Layout Object calculations, Set Web Viewer script step and List function all feature.

Existing users of FileMaker Pro 8.0 and FileMaker Pro 8.0 Advanced may upgrade to FileMaker Pro 8.5 for £69 including VAT. New users can purchase FileMaker Pro 8.5 for £219.
