Nickenich, Germany - (March 9th, 2021) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 11.1 for macOS, iOS, Linux and 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, macOS, iOS 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 11.1 has been updated and now includes over 6500 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

We have new IBAN functions to validate bank account numbers. You can format the IBANs for printing with spaces or get the in compact style. We can calculate the checksum and provide example IBANs for various countries. You can query a regular expression to find IBAN within some text with our RegEx functions.

For macOS and iOS we have new functions for data detectors. That is the feature Apple provides for applications like Safari or Mail to identify data within the text. With our RegEx.DataDetector function you can detect phone numbers, email addresses, URLs, postal addresses and dates in FileMaker.

If you use FileMaker on macOS you can enjoy new buttons for calculation dialogs to evaluate expression and check for syntax errors. In custom functions editing dialog you can check your functions and define a test case using comments to run your custom functions with a specific set of parameters. Links to MBS functions in calculations can now also be links to Dash application.

For DynaPDF we added DynaPDF.Table.SetCellStyledText function to fill tables with styled text from FileMaker easily. The styled text conversion now includes super- and subscript styles. DynaPDF can be used with ZUGFeRD in newer version 2.1.1.

We added a couple of utility functions: The Archive.CompressContainer function to quickly archive a container. Use Math.FormatNumber to format a number with desired decimal separator and number of decimals. With Math.NormInv you can calculate the NormInv function like in Excel. 

For dictionary functions we added a new Dictionary.AddDictionary function to add one dictionary to an existing one. Use Dictionary.ToJSON to convert to JSON and the new Dictionary.FromJSON function to convert back to a dictionary. In List functions you can search lists with List.Find and QuickList.Find functions.

The FileMaker Pro on Windows we implemented PKCS12.ShowDialog and X509.ShowDialog functions to show certificate in standard dialogs. We implemented WebView.StopLoading for Windows.

For iOS we improved the QLPreviewPanel functions to allow editing of documents. You can show a PDF document or image and have the user annotate documents with the built-in markup tools. Then you can save the modified PDF document back in the container. Use iOSApp.InstallOpenURLHandler and related functions to catch URL requests to your custom FileMaker iOS SDK application.

Finally we updated CURL library to version 7.75.0, DukTape to 2.6, DynaPDF to 4.0.49.139, dyncall to 1.2, LCMS to 2.12, LibXL to 3.9.4, LibXML to 2.9.10, LibXSLT to 1.1.34, openssl to 1.1.1i, SQLAPI to 5.1.4b5, Xcode to 12.4 and the plugin SDK for version 19.2.

      New Major Version Release:
      Email 4 with OAuth for Gmail and Office 365
      We are excited to announce a new major version of a popular 360Works Plugin, introducing Email 4! The 360Works Email Plugin for FileMaker can send and receive HTML or plain text email while integrating with popular services such as Gmail by Google and Office 365 by Microsoft (SMTP, POP, and IMAP) from your FileMaker solution. Additionally, you can send SMS / text messages from FileMaker using this plugin.

      We have added new support for OAuth (Open Authentication) with Google and Office 365. The 360Works Email Plugin now provides functions that will enable users to fetch OAuth tokens, and use those OAuth tokens to connect to Gmail and Office 365 Mail servers.

      OAuth provides better security by having users login using their credentials from Google or Microsoft Active Directory. This allows more control over password management by using a login that is familiar and consistent for users.
      New Improvements List
      Added the ability to initiate OAuth workflow, and fetch OAuth tokens from Google and Office 365 OAuth tokens can now be used to connect to Google and Office 365 mail servers to send and receive mail Tokens can be silently refreshed using refresh tokens that are long-lived  
      Availability
      You can upgrade, try, or buy at the Email plugin product page.

      If you currently own Email version 3, click upgrade under your license type once in the product page store area (paid upgrade, non-maintenance product). License holders with version 1 or 2 will need to purchase a new license.

      For new license purchases, we have several license types available based on number of users, client-side or server-side usage, and a solution bundle license for developers with a vertical market solution.

      A free, fully functional demo is available to test the Email plugin. While in demo mode, the Email plugin will run for 2 hours every time you launch FileMaker (or FileMaker Server, for server deployment).
       
      Try or Buy Email 4   In order to understand OAuth workflows better and how to get started, we have added documentation at the 360Works Docs Wiki.

      http://static.360works.com/eoy_blast/logo.jpg Free FileMaker Training TV Live Demo NEXT WEEK
      Featuring Jesse Barnum on 360Works SafetyNet
      Join Jesse Barnum and Richard Carlton over at FileMaker Training TV for a fun, live demonstration and chat on 360Works SafetyNet, a FileMaker Server offsite backup, at 1 p.m. Pacific Time/4 p.m. Eastern Time
      The team at Richard Carlton Consulting will be having Jesse Barnum, President of 360Works, on their FMTraining TV Twitch live stream on Thursday, March 11 at 4:00 p.m. ET to talk about 360Works SafetyNet, an add-on tool built to help FileMaker Developers rest easy, knowing that their essential FileMaker databases are backed up online with secure and easy retrieval at any time.
      During the live stream, Jesse will showcase the improved SafetyNet reliability, security, speed, and pricing as follows:
      SafetyNet now sets up new customers with a 3-day WORM lock (Write Once, Read Many), which ensures that it is impossible to delete or overwrite backups until they are at least three days old. This not only protects against accidental deletion of important backups, it also ensures that hackers or ransomware attacks cannot corrupt or destroy your backups. Many reliability improvements, incorporating many recent improvements that have been made in MirrorSync. Now automatically detects the nearest AWS region for storing backup files, so backing up and restoring will be fast from anywhere in the world. We've fixed the bug that caused problems with some newer AWS regions. Backups are faster, status updates are more responsive You can now specify one or more additional email addresses for backup notifications (in addition to your Amazon account email address) Significant price reduction for storage over 10 gigabytes, with volume pricing as low as $0.05 per gigabyte over 500 gigabytes; try the price calculator to see the new rates Installer is now more reliable and no longer requires Java

      It has never been easier to find your way among FileMaker license or to deploy a server in the cloud.
      fmcloud.fm is a unique hosting service, based on a docker/Linux architecture. According to @Nick Lightbody's benchmark on Medium, our architecture is 4 times faster (yes, 400%!) than a standard Windows/VPS service.

      Updated file management plug-in for FileMaker Pro 19 offers new functionality and is compatible with macOS 11.0.
      Lienden, the Netherlands, January 26, 2021‚ÄďTroi today announced the immediate availability of¬†Troi File Plug-in¬†12.1 for FileMaker 19. This is a maintenance update in which we tested and improved the compatibility with macOS 11.0 (Big Sur), added and improved several functions and fixed a number of issues.
      New functionality in Troi File Plug-in version 12.1
      Troi File Plug-in 12.1 has the following new functionality:
      Added new function¬†TrFile_GetFileKind, which will return a (localized) description of what kind of file this is. For example a .fmp12 file will return ‚ÄúFileMaker Document‚ÄĚ and a .zip file will return ‚ÄúZIP Archive‚ÄĚ.¬†NOTE¬†The resulting description will be returned in the current system language and can be slightly different depending on platform, installed applications and OS version. Improved the¬†TrFile_GetFileHash¬†function: you can now use a container (or a variable with container data) as the source parameter, for example a JPEG in a container field. Added switch ‚Äú-AllowNonLocalCloudItems‚ÄĚ to the¬†TrFile_SelectFileDialog¬†function. This will allow you to select files that are not downloaded to the local disk. Improved the¬†TrFile_GetMetaData¬†function: added support for FujiFilm Raw image files (.raf) when using the switches ‚Äú-GetEXIF‚ÄĚ and ‚Äú-GetXMP‚ÄĚ. Improved the¬†TrFile_CreateThumbnail¬†function for .CRW (RAW) files, when using the switch ‚Äú-GetFullSizeRawThumbnail‚ÄĚ switch, the function now returns the full size thumbnail embedded in the RAW file. Added new switch ‚Äú-DontAddDS_Store‚ÄĚ to the¬†TrFile_CreateZIP¬†function. When you add this switch hidden .DS_Store files will not be added to the ZIP file (.DS_Store files can be added to folders by the macOS Finder). Added new switch ‚Äú-AddMacOSXAttributes‚ÄĚ to the¬†TrFile_CreateZIP¬†function. When you add this switch Extended attributes and resource forks are added to the zip file. If there are extended attributes (or files with resource forks) this will be stored in a ‚Äú__MACOSX‚ÄĚ folder at the top level. Improved compatibility, bug fixes and other changes and improvements
      Troi File Plug-in 12.1 also has the following changes and improvements:
      Tested and made compatible with Claris FileMaker Pro 19, up to and including FileMaker Pro 19.2. Tested and made compatible with macOS 11.0 (Big Sur). Tested and made compatible with Windows 10 version 20H2 (October 2020 Update) and Windows 10 version 2004 (May 2020 Update). Fixed a problem while using the encoding switch -Encoding=ASCII_Windows (Windows-1252) : the plug-in no longer crashes when an incorrect or corrupt text with undefined character codes (like for example 0x81) is read. In this case the¬†Unicode replacement character¬†is returned. (macOS) Fixed a problem with the functions TrFile_Substitute, TrFile_SetMetadata and TrFile_InsertContents functions: in some cases (with the source and destination file being equal) these functions would work but incorrectly return an error code $$-47. (Windows) Fixed a problem with creating thumbnails with the¬†Create Thumbnail¬†script step or the¬†TrFile_CreateThumbnailfunction, the plug-in would not honor the EXIF orientation tag for some JPEG images. Fixed a bug in the¬†TrFile_GetMetaData¬†function: when using the switch ‚Äú-GetPDFDescription‚ÄĚ the plug-in no longer truncates text when it contains a slash. Fixed a problem in the¬†Set MetaData of Image File¬†script step and the¬†TrFile_SetMetaData¬†function. The GPS Altitude Reference can now be set correctly (0 = Above Sea Level and 1 = Below Sea Level). Renamed the¬†Delete File¬†script step to¬†Delete file¬†(note the lower case f), making its name different from the FileMaker native Delete File step. This ensures that when you copy and paste script steps the correct step is pasted. (macOS) Modernized several functions and script steps. They now use a more modern framework. (macOS) Improved compatibility when running FileMaker Pro 19 in dark mode, the flash dialog is now more visible. Improved several example files. Several other minor bug fixes. More detailed information on all changes and improvements can be found on the¬†File Plug-in¬†page.
      You can download the new version there.
      Upgrading to version 12.1 is free for all customers with a valid subscription for the Troi Developer License Bundle and for users of version 12.0. You don’t need a new registration code.
      Upgrades from older versions are available from US $ 59. You can order upgrades from our shop.
