FmPro Migrator 4.38
.com Solutions has upgraded FmPro Migrator to version 4.38, and describes the patch primarily as a "maintenance update" which includes Bento-to-FileMaker Pro enhancements. FmPro Migrator converts FileMaker Pro databases to MySQL, Oracle, Access, SQL Server, Sybase, DB2, OpenBase, PostgreSQL and FrontBase formats. Some changes include new Check for Updates and Online Web Help menus, the latter of which point to "How To..." documents on the FmPro website, said to be more frequently updated; the maintenance otherwise consists mostly of performance and functional improvements to gathering tables and relationships, as well as creating FileMaker Layouts based on Bento forms.
The software now also includes a new Bento CSV/TAB delimited export feature for Unicode data, which lets users with localized versions of Bento export non-ASCII characters to FileMaker Pro and other programs.
The update is available free to existing customers, while a fresh single-user license costs $100. A developer edition is also available for $200.
