The beta release features External FileMaker 7 API plug-in support and expanded parameter sizes. According to Troi Automatisering:
Troi Automatisering today announced the availability of the second public beta version of Troi File Plug-in 3.0, for FileMaker Pro 7.
Troi File Plug-in is a very powerful tool for getting access to information outside the FileMaker Pro database. Any files or folders stored on the computer can be accessed through the functions of the plug-in.

- The plug-in uses the native External Function API of FileMaker Pro 7
- The plug-in functions now have a size limit of 1 Gb per parameter (up from the total of 64000 character limit for all parameters in FileMaker 6!)
- Each function now supports Unicode characters
