We at FileMaker-Pros have been working with pre-release versions of FileMaker 14 for several months, and, as such, are ready to hit the ground running upgrading existing solutions as well as creating new custom-built applications.
Below are a few of the enhancements that FileMaker 14 offers.
New Script Workspace
When it comes to automating your FileMaker solution, the brand new Script Workspace does more of the work for you. Create, edit, and view your scripts and calculations all in one streamlined workspace to speed development time. Some of the new features in Script Workspace include auto-complete, tabbed view of multiple scripts, support for line numbers and syntax coloring, inline editing, and more.
Enhanced Web Browser Experience
Improved Design Elements
New Launch Center
Better iOS Experience
With the FileMaker 14 Platform, it’s even easier to control how your solutions look and run on iPad and iPhone. FileMaker Go 14 has a brand new look that reflects the style of iOS 8. Easily make your solutions full screen by using scripts or swiping to hide the user interface. Play videos in a container field as well as in full screen. And interact with your layouts while videos are playing. New scripts automate the starting and stopping point of a video or audio recording — ideal for training scenarios when you want users to view certain chapters or sections at a time.
More Robust Client / Server
FileMaker Server 14 offers better security with enhanced password controls. For experienced server administrators there is a new standby server option in FileMaker Server 14 to ensure higher availability of your business data. If your primary server ever goes down, type in a set of commands via the Command Line Interface to switch over to a standby server.
