I heard that the engine of webviewer changed to Webkit2 in ver16(Mac).
Is there an announcement or documentation from FMI about this?
How about FileMaker GO?
What is the engine of FMgo16 webviewer?
I'd like to know the details.

If it is still the case, iOS apps are not allowed to use their own web engine and must use the built in iOS which is available for 3rd party apps.
Thanks for reply.
When searching about web engine, I often found the terms 'UIWebView', 'WKWebView'.
Can I consider 'Webkit2' as equal to 'WKWebView'?
Because I'm not so familiar with Mac/iOS app programming, if you are an expert in that, could you tell me about that?
I'm not familiar with the current version of iOS, but in the past the webkit version available for 3rd party apps was (sometimes) behind the version that the main iOS Safari used. It may actually be at parity now so it would update with iOS.
You can check the webkit version by pointing the browser to here WebKit Information - BrowserSpy.dk
FileMaker 16 uses WKWebView on both iOS and Mac.
WKWebView - WebKit | Apple Developer Documentation
The older classes used in FM15 are deprecated by Apple.
Thanks for your useful information!
I have a question. In the document
In spite of above recommendation, FileMaker doesn't adopt WKWebView before ver16?
Am I missing the point?
