FileMaker 5.0v3 Update Available -- After an earlier abortive release, FileMaker, Inc. has released Macintosh updaters for FileMaker Pro 5.0v3 that can be applied to Worldwide English or Japanese versions of either FileMaker Pro 5.0v1 or 5.0v2 (See "FileMaker Pro 5 Released to Controversy" in TidBITS-499 for an overview of FileMaker Pro 5's features and functionality.) A new feature in FileMaker 5.0v3 enables a user to open the Define Fields dialog box for a database hosted on FileMaker Pro Server so long as no other guests are connected. FileMaker Pro 5.0v3 also fixes problems with JPEG images, correctly imports data with blank repetitions in repeating fields, and addresses numerous issues with the Import Update feature for synchronizing database files. FileMaker has published a list of fixes on its Web site; the update itself includes a more complete list. The updater is a 3.9 MB download. [GD]
