I went ahead and updated a test machine to run FM12.2 and it is connecting to FMS12.1 without any issues.
Well, I would say that is not definitive. It would be best to hear from FMI on the issue. I'll hold until officially confirmed.
I seem to remember someone saying something about the rendering engine and problems with the then supported Unicode standard FMI was using. I might also be getting my ducks crossed.
Possibly and update with supported unicode characters could cause issue with some theme/layout/rendering stuff.
There are no known reasons why you cannot use FileMaker Pro 12.0v2 to connect to a file hosted by FileMaker Server 12.0v1.
Thanks for the update. Since it's mentioned in the Pro update notes, can you tell us when the Server update may be released?
All, there is no release date for FMS 12v2. However I can tell you it is very soon...
I have seen no conflicts between server 12 v1 and Filemaker pro 12v2
I purchased a copy online of FMS12 yesterday: can I assume that is the lastest version?
I don't think do, you will have version 1
There now appears to be at least one known reason that has surfaced regarding the use of <> and ≠.
in portal filters, basically, they do not work when running v2 client with v1 server. Reading through the posts linked below, it seems the issue is only apparent on hosted solutions where the client is on 12 v2 and the server is 12 v1.
FMI has replicated and confirmed the issue.
