    I know that everyone is really excited about the new trigger functions in FileMaker Pro 10. However, the new sleeper feature by far has to be the redesign of sub summary reports. No longer do you have to be in Preview mode to view a sub summary report. It's about time... I really got tired of seeing the coffee cup on a found set of 100,000+ records with multiple sub summary fields. The redesign not only makes the sub summary reports blazingly fast, but it also means that you can modify the report on the fly and FileMaker will automatically update the report without needing to resort the records. That alone is worth it's weight in gold.
