From what we have been told they have no
intention of doing so in the future.
FileMaker never announces future plans for their products except to produce a "to be deprecated" list in the knowledge base. Maybe there's something there that is leading your hosting service to make this statement, but I doubt it.
It's possible that there are other causes for your lock up that could be a part of your database design. Is there any pattern to when the system "locks up"? Any specific action that always precedes the lock up?
Not that I have been able to tell. But I did have them move it to new server and it seams to be a lot better. We will have to see.
Thanks for your reply.
