Nickenich, Germany - (November 24th, 2015) -- MonkeyBread Software today is
pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 5.4 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 5.4 has
been updated and now includes over 3400 different functions, and the
versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

Do you use a Mac? We have a few additions for FileMaker. For the script
editor we have a search field to find text in the current script. The
matching lines will be highlighted in yellow. For the relationship graph
our plugin adds a new search field. Enter some text, press return and
FileMaker navigates to the next matching table occurence. Using a popup
menu you can jump directly to a table occurence or reduce the list by
entering some text.

For OS X we have a few new functions including File system events to
monitor directories for changes. The plugin triggers a script if something
changes in a folder. You can monitor subfolders and even get file change

Our new JavaScript functions for Mac allow to run JavaScript without
webviewer. You can get/set properties, evaluate JavaScript expression or
execute JavaScript functions. From JavaScript you can trigger FileMaker
scripts, evaluate expressions and run SQL queries on the FileMaker

For users of Microsoft Word we have a few functions for Mac and Windows to
edit Word files (docx and xml Format) and replace placeholder texts with
text. You can use this to personalize word files with texts from your

If you need to sign text or data and later verify whether the signature is
valid, you can now use our elliptic curve signature functions. You generate
a private and public key. With the private key you can sign a piece of
data. Someone else can now verify the data integrity by checking the
signature with the public key.

As you may know we have a XML import feature to import XML files. The
plugin creates required tables, fields and imports the data. We added new
functions to do the same with JSON data. And our new work functions would
allow the importing part to even run on a FileMaker server.

With new search functions for the Mac Addressbook you can easier find
people or companies. Auditing can now ignore summary fields and the
PrivilegeSetName field works better. Hotkeys got improved so you can limit
them to FileMaker instead of system wide. With DynaPDF Pro you can now
print a PDF on Windows directly. Our email parser got a few new functions,
e.g. to save an imported email without attachments. Finally we have
improvements for CURL, AVAsset, PDFKit, Menubar, SerialPort, Text and
Window functions.
