FileMaker 18 Compatiblity with 360Works Plug-ins
Update available for the entire 360Works plug-in platform, providing compatibility with FileMaker 18 and several quality improvements
FileMaker 18 is an exciting update with improved data importing and file conversion, new functions and script steps, and security enhancements. One of the new security features requires that a plug-in be signed by its developer.
All 360Works plug-ins listed below have been released with a new minor version to meet these requirements, along with additional improvements to the quality of the plug-in.
Quality of life improvements made to the 360Works plug-in platform include:
Startup and shutdown procedures have been greatly improved Fixed issues that caused PSOS calls to return "Host capacity exceeded" Fixed issues that prevented plugins from autoupdating using the Install Plugin script step Fixed an issue where multiple server side scripts would cause plugin functions to time out Fixed issues related to multi user environments (Server side scripts, WebDirect, Custom Web Publishing) Fixed issues where child processes would not be terminated on shutdown Reworked GUI framework, so that plugin windows will stay in lock-step with FileMaker windows
While the new minor update for overall quality and compatibility affects the entire 360Works plug-in platform, specific plug-ins have more improvements for other specific technologies:
360Works Scribe Plug-in now compatible with Microsoft Office 2019 360Works FTPeek Plug-in supports TLS 1.2 standard encryption protocol 360Works ScriptMaster updated to use Groovy 2.4.10
*ScriptMaster users who generate their own plug-ins should check the updated ScriptMaster documentation to comply with FileMaker 18 changes.
