ScriptMaster 3 update
360Works has released ScriptMaster 3, an update to its FileMaker plug-in that handles file manipulation, web services and shell scripting. The latest version contains a redesigned user interface, and new modules such as Crop Image, QuickTime frame capture and URLDecode. New functions let users retrieve size information, create a ZIP archive or run syntax checks on XML tests.
Additional components include a pop-up menu, options to list all files in a set of directories, and the EncryptAES/DecryptAES function. The QuickTime frame capture makes it possible to capture a snapshot from an iSight camera, or any other QuickTime-compatible video input. ScriptMaster 3 also provides a "better random" module to handle difficulties with FileMaker's built-in random number generator.
Users can download a free copy of the software from the 360Works website. Mac OS X 10.4 or higher is required.
