FileMaker Pro improves Leopard compatibility

FileMaker Pro 9.0v2

FileMaker today released FileMaker Pro 9.0v2 and FileMaker Pro 9.0v2 Advanced, enhancing its database software with improved support for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. The update no longer crashes when creating files if hte file system language and region do not match, and returns the correct version on Mac OS X operating systems ending with double digit revision numbers like 10.4.10. The database consistency check initiated on launch will no longer incorrectly report that a database is damaged for some databases that users can open and use without any problems, and the update addresses issues that caused the application to crash when a page range was specified when printing. FileMaker Pro 9.0v2 and FileMaker Pro 9.0v2 Advanced are available as downloadable updates to registered users of version 9.0.

The latest revision of FileMaker Pro no longer causes records to disappear from a portal related to another portal after adding approximately 400 records, and the application no longer crashes when a page range is specified. A relationship with a global field now returns all related records if the value of the other key is empty, the application no longer freezes when displaying a layout that opens an external file via a relationship, and searching for decimal values with non-period decimal operators in a file with non-U.S. file locale will no longer fail.

An exhaustive list of changes is available from via an update support page.
