FileMaker 7.0v3 Update Offers Numerous Fixes -- On 05-Oct-04, FileMaker, Inc., posted free updaters that bring previous versions of FileMaker 7 (both Pro and Developer; see "FileMaker Pro 7: Can You Say Paradigm Shift?" in TidBITS-721) up to 7.0v3. The list of problems addressed by this update is quite long and includes improvements in text editing, layout editing, scripting, calculations, portals, value lists, import/export, find, spell checking, security, display of related data, and Japanese language functionality. The Developer update includes all the fixes just mentioned, plus fixes to Developer-only features such as the script debugger, Database Design Report, and Developer Utilities. For Mac OS X users, the same 26 MB download is used to update FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Developer. Windows users must download separate files for each application, and the download for the Pro updater for Windows is a whopping 107 MB. The 7.0v3 update is strongly recommended for all users of FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Developer. [WP]
