MBS Plugin 13.0 for Claris FileMaker - More than 6900 Functions In One Plugin
Nickenich, Germany - (January 17th, 2023) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS Plugin 13.0 for Claris FileMaker for macOS, iOS, Linux and Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for Claris FileMaker produce line. As the leading database management solution for Windows, macOS, iOS and the web, the Claris FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 13.0 has been updated and now includes over 6900 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

We added new MongoDB functions to provide a stream of changes in a database. This may help you to audit changes on the database and check what changes you or others do on the database, your connection or just a collection (table).

For CURL functions we added web socket support. The new CURL.WebSocketReceive and CURL.WebSocketSend functions can send and receive data using web sockets. You can set the certificate cache timeout with CURL.SetOptionCACacheTimeout function. We improved CURL.SetupAWS to do PATCH requests. In the examples we got an example database for SMTP with OAuth for Office 365 in FileMaker.

For DynaPDF, we added new functions to create ICC profile based color spaces. We can inspect the fields on a page and modify them. With DynaPDF.TestGlyphs function you can now test whether a text is okay to be written with the current font.

The preferences dialog for macOS now shows additional check boxes for code folding, export dialog tooltips, the option-click feature in Script Workspace and syntax highlighting for calculations independent of scripts.

In the Script Workspace, we added the find or go to line commands to the contextual menu to make them more visible. The search field in Script Workspace is now a real search field and remembers the history. Code folding can now be toggled with option key between folding all of an IF block or just to the first ELSE.

For Windows the preference dialog got a new check box for whether to show the relationship graph search box. We added the control-F shortcut for the relationship graph search field on Windows to move focus to the search field. Press control-G to continue the search. We got the Windows support for ProcessActivity.beginActivity function added.

The Menu.DefineQuickMenuXML function recognizes FontName und FontSize as keys to control font for a menu. You can work with RTF on the clipboard with new RichText functions for macOS and iOS. The Files.DeleteFolder function is updated for Linux to do recursive deletion.

Finally we updated the Plugin SDK to the one of FileMaker 19.6. We updated CURL library to version 7.87.0, DynaPDF to, GraphicsMagick to 1.3.38, SQLAPI to 5.2.3, SQLite to 3.40.0, Xcode to 14.2, zint to 2.11.1 and zlib to 1.2.13.
