Nickenich, Germany - MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 3.3 for Mac OS X or Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for FileMaker Pro. As the leading database management solution for Windows, Mac, and the web, the FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 3.3 has been updated and now includes over 1600 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

Our new plugin has a lot of new function for DynaPDF. Especially for handling huge PDF files like producing a 1000 page document. Also we now allow loading PDF pages as template and placing them several times on a new PDF. Finally we have methods to save your PDF and sign it with a digital signature.

For our encryption methods we have a new hash function called Hash.PBKDF2.HMAC to create encryption keys based on a password. And you can choose between MD5, SHA1, SHA256 or SHA512 as hashing algorithm.

Our ServerSocket functionality is improved to allow queries from Filemaker Go and from Javascript. This way we can for example trigger scripts in Filemaker Pro from a database on an iPad running Filemaker Go. Or even from a webviewer running inside Filemaker Pro on Windows using Internet Explorer 10.

A new function helps to verify if email addresses are right. We check the syntax of the email address and optionally also verify that a mail server exists for the domain.

And we have improvements for Addressbook, SerialPort, Container, Drag & Drop, Window, Twain, Container and SQL access functions.

For more details, please check the release notes. Take the time to check out the plugin and try the more than 200 example databases. Maybe you get some ideas on how to use the plugin in your solutions.
