FileMaker Pro 8.5v2 offers Leopard fixes

updated 01:55 am EST, Wed December 19, 2007

FileMaker Pro 8.5v2 ships

FileMaker on Tuesday released a downloadable update to fix important compatibility issues in FileMaker Pro 8.5 and FileMaker Pro 8.5 Advanced running on Mac OS X Leopard, but stopped short of offering complete compatibility with the new operating system. The v2 update fixes issues that caused FileMaker Pro 8.5 to hang when the system language and region did not match, and when saving to or exporting to Microsoft Excel format. The Apple subsidiary, however, noted that the Instant Web Publishing (IWP) feature does not work in FileMaker Pro 8.5v2 or FileMaker Pro 8.5v2 Advanced running on Mac OS X Leopard: "The IWP feature in FileMaker Pro 8.5 was designed and implemented long before Leopard, and it is not feasible to update it for Leopard," the company said in its documentation. Earlier this month, the company released a second Leopard update for its latest FileMaker 9.0 software.

"We hope the v2 update helps customers make a smoother transition to FileMaker Pro 9. Please note there may be other issues with FileMaker Pro 8.5 and FileMaker Pro 8.5 Advanced running on Leopard," the company said. "We urge our customers to use the current versions of all FileMaker software."
