FileMaker Releases 9.0v2 Patch for Leopard

FileMaker announced on Thursday version 9.0v2 for FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Pro Advanced as a downloadable update. The patch fixes a minor Leopard problem with language support, has a printing fix and more.

The update, which is 349 MB, is recommended for all users. FileMaker provided an overview of the fixes:

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.

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

FileMaker noted 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."
