Troi Serial Plug-in 3.2 released
NOTE Although we have not released a new version of Troi Serial Plug-in, the plug-in (v3.2) has been prepared for the arrival of FileMaker Pro 12. It should work without problems with FileMaker Pro 12. We also expect to release example files using the new .fmp12 format soon. See also the FileMaker Pro 12 compatibility page with information regarding compatibility of all our plug-ins with FileMaker 12.
We have released Troi Serial Plug-in 3.2. Version 3.2 is a maintenance release, which is compatible with FileMaker 11 and also fixes some bugs.
What can Troi Serial Plug-in do for you?
With Troi Serial you can connect to multiple serial ports and read and write data to them all directly from FileMaker!
On the version history page you can find the complete list of changes of this and previous versions.
For FileMaker Pro 10 through 12
Troi Serial Plug-in 3 was completely rewritten to be FileMaker Pro 7 native, allowing it to make use of the advanced possibilities, like multiple, self-explanatory parameters and support for Unicode.
Troi Serial Plug-in runs natively with FileMaker Pro 11 and 12 and FileMaker Advanced 11 and 12, but also with FileMaker Pro 8.x through FileMaker Pro 10. The Mac OS X version is a Universal plug-in which runs natively on PowerPC and Intel Macs (it also still runs on Windows).
For those users who are still working with FileMaker 5 through 6, we offer a classic Troi Serial Plug-in version 2.6.
Troi Serial Plug-in still has a great debug function, making setup of databases a breeze for our users. You can now troubleshoot by testing the arrival of data at the serial port and you can test script triggering too.
No more quitting
Troi Serial Plug-in 3 can be reinitialized without quitting FileMaker Pro. This makes it possible to accommodate new or different serial ports dynamically, for example when you plug in a USB serial adapter.
And more ...
Another powerful feature is getting the last match string (for example the last line) that was received.
What are the costs?
Troi Serial is a very specialized plug-in, with a limited customer base. To be able to make the conversion viable we had to make the new version of Troi Serial Plug-in more expensive than our other plug-ins.
