FileMaker, Inc. has released FileMaker Pro 15.0.4 and FileMaker Pro 15.0.4 Advanced. This update addresses an issue related to the temporary cache.

 

To download this update, visit the in-product Help menu and select Check for Updates. Or visit: www.filemaker.com/support/downloads.

With the release of macOS High Sierra today, we wanted to update you on the compatibility of the FileMaker platform, and specifically the follow versions:

 

  • FileMaker Pro 16.0.2
  • FileMaker Pro 16.0.2 Advanced
  • FileMaker Pro 15.0.4
  • FileMaker Pro 15.0.4 Advanced
  • FileMaker Server 16.0.2
  • FileMaker Server 15.0.3

 

FileMaker Pro 16.0.2, FileMaker Pro 16.0.2 Advanced, FileMaker Pro 15.0.4, and FileMaker Pro 15.0.4 Advanced, have been tested and are certified to be macOS High Sierra compatible with the issues listed in the FileMaker knowledge base article listed below.

 

FileMaker Server 16.0.2 and FileMaker Server 15.0.3 have been tested and are certified to be High Sierra compatible with no known issues at this time.

 

For the most part, everything is good and no updates are needed for the FileMaker 15 and FileMaker 16 platform to be compatible with macOS High Sierra.  Other version of FileMaker products have not been tested with macOS High Sierra and are therefore not certified to be compatible.

 

For more information, see the article entitled "FileMaker platform and macOS High Sierra" in the FileMaker knowledge base.

With the release of iOS 11 today (19SEPT), we wanted to update you on the compatibility of FileMaker Go 14, 15, and 16 with the new version of iOS.  The good news is that FileMaker Go 15 and FileMaker Go 16 are compatible with no major issues reported.

 

The FileMaker knowledge base has been updated with the following articles that provide additional information about iOS 11 compatibility.

 

KB 16548 - FileMaker Go and iOS 11 compatibility

KB 16549 - Unable to import / insert content from Dropbox using FileMaker Go after updating to iOS 11

 

KB 16548 also provides information on 32-bit / 64-bit compatibility.  As many of you know, iOS 11 only supports 64-bit apps now.  FileMaker Go has been a 64-bit app since FileMaker Go 14.  If you happen to be using an older version of FileMaker Go, KB 16548 provides information on how you can transfer your data stored in your pre-14 version of FileMaker Go into a version of FileMaker Go supported by iOS 11.
