Nickenich, Germany - (February 24th, 2015) -- MonkeyBread Software today is
pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 5.0 for Mac OS X or Windows, the
latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin
currently available for FileMaker Pro. As the leading database management
solution for Windows, Mac, and the web, the FileMaker Pro Integrated
Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily
extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 5.0 has
been updated and now includes over 3000 different functions, and the
versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

For our Mac users we have now hot keys. You can define a key combination to
launch a FileMaker script, even if FileMaker is not the active application.
Our MountNotification functions allow you to run a script when a drive
mounts or unmounts.

The MBS Plugin now helps finding errors in scripts. If you call the MBS
function with an unknown function name, the error message now includes a
suggestion for the right function name. We hope this helps finding typos.
If a script runs and a function returns an error, the plugin will show a
notification. This way you don't miss an error in your scripts. Please
enable this feature for development using Trace.EnableErrorNotifications.

For DynaPDF we have new functions to create, modify and delete annotations.
You can now create much easier preview images for pages and render whole
PDF files to a folder of images. New functions allow to place text as
watermark across a page.

Our functions for menus allow you to query the current FileMaker menu.
Using our plugin you can execute menu commands from a script, hide or
change the shortcut. For the menu command to create a database design
report, we got a function to create a report automatically from a script.

The barcode functions can now calculate checksums for EAN and ISBN. The
function Files.DiskInfo queries the size of a drive and the free space. We
improved the TAPI functions for Windows to make and receive phone calls.

For webviewer we got a few new functions to query selected text, formatted
text and the favorite icon. You can control the scrollbars and manage
cookies. Finally we got a new example showing how to use a SVG drawing tool
in FileMaker.

We updated a couple of libraries: DynaPDF updated to version,
LibXL to 3.6.1, CURL to 7.39.0, GraphicsMagick to 1.3.20, libJPEG to 9.1,
libPNG to 1.6.14, OpenSSL to 1.0.1j and PCRE to 8.36.

example databases and check where you can use our plugin features in your
