Version 0.60 of bBox FileMaker ToolBox Functions Now Available

Featured Version 0.60 of bBox FileMaker ToolBox Functions Now Available

A new version of our free bBox FileMaker plug-in is now available.

Some of the changes in this release;

  • now a fat 32/64 bit binary for FileMaker 13 Server support
  • using latest version of libxml2 (version 2.9.1)
  • namespaces can now be supplied to XPath
  • several bugs fixed in handling of parameters with AppleScript
 

The bBox FileMaker external plug-in is a toolbox of functions freely available to all developers. Use it to extend the reach of your Mac OS based FileMaker solutions to programs, code libraries, or OS functions that are normally outside your reach.

With more than 20 powerful functions, it either extends the reach of FileMaker’s existing commands, or adds something completely new. This makes it easier to get your projects done, and without the need for ugly workarounds to provide functionality that should be simple.
