“Details of new features in FileMaker 9 have emerged ahead of its release, as engineers continue to polish functionality and keep the database software competitive,” Think Secret reports.
Think Secret reports, “Among the changes planned for FileMaker 9 are object scaling based on window size, scripting triggers when entering and leaving fields, and significant ODBC changes. In addition, support for reading and writing to SQL databases will be added in FileMaker 9. Object scaling is rumored to be in development but may not make it into the final release due to technological hurdles, sources say. Specifically, ensuring that scaling works at multiple levels without overlapping of objects, including white space and anchored items, may prove too cumbersome to implement.”
“FileMaker 9 is expected to be ready around the second-half of 2007 at the earliest, although its release could be pushed to later in the year,” Think Secret reports.
