Nickenich, Germany - (October 1st, 2015) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 5.3 for Mac OS X or 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, Mac, 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 5.3 has been updated and now includes over 3300 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:
Does your application need email receiving? In our new plugin version we got a set of Mime parser functions. Our examples show you how to parse an email and show subject, plain and html text, receivers and sender, inline graphics and attachments. Using our CURL functions you can download emails via IMAP or POP3 and our example project shows you how this works. Combined with FileMaker database you can have your emails automatically get downloaded, parsed and stored in your database in several related tables. Our plugin can send emails via SMTP, too.
When you need to import Tab-separated values from a text file, you can use our new FM.InsertRecordTSV function. You provide the text with tab/return delimiters, table name and field names. The plugin will read through the values and create records for you automatically.
If you need to import XML files, check our new XML.Import function. It's written in a way that it should import any XML file without the need of a XLST or similar format description. Our plugin processes the xml and creates tables for the fields and attributes found in records. Next it imports all data found in the XML into new records. Finally you can process those new records and pick the values you need form the XML.
Our plugin now handles compressed container values better. We now have functions to compress and uncompress container values. The Files.ReadFile function can also read files and return them as compressed containers.
For DynaPDF we got new functions for color management. Now you can use color profiles to render pages. This even allows to render images with CMYK color space. And we got a new function to show differences between two PDF pages.
For our SQL functions, you can now use an internal SQLite library within the plugin. This copy of the SQLite library includes the encryption extension, so you can use encrypted databases. We support AES 128, AES 256 and RC4 encryption.
We got a new audit example for you, new socket and serial functions. You can hide the bottom bar in FileMaker and use Social Requests on OS X.
We updated CURL to version 7.44.0, DynaPDF to 220.127.116.11, libXL to 3.6.4 and OpenSSL to 1.0.2d.
