Mar 22, 2017  Plug-in Updates Released for FileMaker 16
Windows FileMaker 16 has removed the main window that used to contain all database layouts. This takes up less room on your screen and improves script editing, but it required fixes to many of our plug-ins that used the main window as a starting point for things like positioning menus and dialogs.

All 2empowerFM plug-ins have been updated for FileMaker 16 compatibility and all but Developer Assistant are free updates. DA required a lot of internal changes to interact correctly with FileMaker 16 so a discounted license upgrade will be required for licenses purchased before Feb 9th, 2016.

Script Scheduler has been updated to take a Timestamp parameter that makes scheduling scripts easier in non-US regions. SQL Runner now supports named result sets so you can iterate multiple results at the same time in nested loops.   Learn more...
