Filemaker 9 Adds a Few Things – Mostly Ho's and Hums

Filemaker Filemaker calls their new version 9 software “the most dramatic new product line in years“.  Reading down the list of 30 ease-of-use breakthroughs it’s hard to imagine how any of these breakthroughs will help me.

Don’t get me wrong, Filemaker is a great program that keeps getting better.  Much better than 4D or MS Access on the PC side.  IT is just that it seems like it may be attempting to make a mountain out of this molehill of a release.

Instead of trumpeting what amounts to some template and script updates, a “start screen”and and the ability to access external MySQL data, how about more on PHP integration, bringing the cost down or having a VMware image – just for starters.
