What FileMaker Developers Think About FileMaker 15
“FileMaker 15 definitely has some cool new features. Although the focus on mobility features are awesome, one of my favourite new features is the ability to clear truncate tables. It is a great addition that will save fellow developers and I countless hours. Another feature that will be very helpful is the highlighted script errors – well, it’ll be helpful for developers who make errors ;). As with every release of FileMaker, I am excited to really dive into the platform and try out all of the new features. One of my favourite parts of trying out new releases is finding all the small surprise updates that you didn’t know were coming. Enjoy FileMaker 15 everyone, I know I will!”
