Apple’s FileMaker launched a major overhaul of its flagship database for Mac and Windows desktops and servers at MacWorld, a product used by 70 of the world’s Fortune 100 corporations. Big enhancements are being made to all editions of the database from Apple’s FileMaker division, including FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Pro Advanced, FileMaker Server, and FileMaker Server Advanced.
FileMaker 10 comes with 30 new starter solutions and ten new themes. In another new feature, users can create a new database just by clicking a button to start with an existing file from either FileMaker’s Bento personal database for Mac or Microsoft’s Excel spreadsheet.
Other features common across all four products include dynamic reporting, saved finds, script triggers, and faster SMTP direct e-mail, for example.
