FileMaker Pro 9.0v2 update delivers Leopard compatibility and more

FileMaker has released FileMaker Pro 9.0v2 and FileMaker Pro 9.0v2
Advanced, available now via a downloadable update. The 9.0v2 update
provides compatibility with Mac OS X Leopard as described below, and other
features, and is recommended for all users.

Here is a list of other fixes in the 9.0v2 update that developers will be
most interested in:

Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard):

The application no longer crashes when creating files if the system
language and region do not match.

General Fixes:

Mac OS X: Get(SystemVersion) now returns the correct version on Mac OS X
operating systems ending with double digit revision numbers, i.e. 10.4.10.

The database consistency check initiated on launch will no longer
incorrectly report that a database is damaged for some databases that can
be opened and used without any problems.

Printing Fixes:

The update addresses issues which cause the application to crash when a
page range is specified.


A relationship with a global field now returns all related records if the
value of the other key is empty.

the FileMaker Pro 9.0v2 and FileMaker Pro 9.0v2 Advanced Leopard update now.

Please note that this update does not fix issues with the FileMaker Pro 9
Instant Web Publishing (IWP) feature running on Leopard. We intend to make
IWP compatible with Leopard in an update expected in December 2007.

We expect to deliver a Leopard compatibility update for our Server products
in early 2008. FileMaker Server 9 and FileMaker Server 9 Advanced currently
do not deploy properly on Leopard. In the meantime, FileMaker Pro 9 and
FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced clients running on Leopard do work with FileMaker
Server and Server Advanced running on Tiger or earlier versions of Mac OS X.

For timely news on the availability of compatibility updates for IWP, and
for FileMaker Server 9 and FileMaker Server 9 Advanced, please subscribe to
FileMaker News.
