Keep in mind that you can continue to host your solution for WebDirect access in a FileMaker Server 14 account at FileMaker Hosting Pros or wherever you prefer. FileMaker Server 14 still works and will work for years. Its licensing hasn't changed. Just don't upgrade to Server 15.
Know that, but is that in any way "future oriented" ? No, if ever FMI will introduce new features, they will come in 16, 17 and so on. So we have to concrete our feature set on the possibilites of 14. That way our Webdirect solution will never get proper printing or PDF export, no table view, no page preview and so forth. I can bury it. So sad.
