FileMaker Inc., a provider of database solutions, discussed the latest release of FileMaker Pro 8.5. The company says new features like its web viewer places the database in a browser format, making it easier to assemble needed information on demand and to users, thus enabling them to link data records to web pages. A “link once and forget it” feature makes it easy for users to keep web records on students and personnel up to date for administrators and emergency personnel. The latest version of the software is Mac-compatible, making the database universally available for the first time, according to the company. Another product, called the FileMaker Learning Center, is a professional development tool that allows users to learn the database’s functionality at their own pace. FileMaker is now available in nine languages.
