As many of you know, FileMaker, Inc. recently announced deprecation of the runtime creation feature in FileMaker Pro Advanced. While this feature has been deprecated, it has not been removed from the product. At this time no specific timeframe has been scheduled for removal.
Runtimes are still supported in the FileMaker 14 Platform and we can assure you that they will also remain in the next version of the platform.
As the FileMaker Platform evolves, we continue to invest in new technologies. Less efficient features and technologies currently in the product may be deprecated in favor of these newer ones. Accordingly, we continue to explore alternatives for runtimes in future versions of the product.
