Troi Automatisering releases Troi File Plug-in 5.5.1 for FileMaker Pro 11

Updated File Plug-in for FileMaker Pro 11 improves support for OS X Lion.

Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, July 25th, 2011--Troi Automatisering today officially announces the immediate availability of Troi File Plug-in 5.5.1 for FileMaker Pro 11.

What is Troi File Plug-in?

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. All from within FileMaker Pro you can:

  • get data from files that are on the disk of the computer into FileMaker Pro
  • create files anywhere on the hard disk and put data from FileMaker fields into them
  • manipulate files and folders on the disk: this includes creating, deleting, copying, moving and modifying files and folders
  • get the size on disk, creation and modification dates and much more
  • launch and reveal files directly from FileMaker Pro
  • manage your images and movies, and read IPTC and Exif metadata from JPEG and RAW images

What is new in version 5.5.1?

Troi File Plug-in 5.5.1 is a maintenance update of our file manipulation plug-in. The new version 5.5.1 improves further on compatibility with Mac OS X Lion. It also improves the speed of the powerful recursive listing of files and folders with just one call to the plug-in. This update includes these improvements:

  • Fixed a bug with TrFile_ListDisks function when running on OS X Lion (10.7): the plug-in no longer returns two incorrect disk names.
  • Fixed a bug with TrFile_ListFolder function and the "-Recursive" switch: the plug-in now correctly handles folders containing an extreme large number of items (directly at that folder level), for example a folder with 100.000 individual files in that folder.
  • Significantly improved the speed of the TrFile_ListFolder function (up to 5 times faster).
  • Improved the TrFile_ListFolder function and the "-Recursive" switch: the plug-in now by default encodes filenames which contain a forward slash "/": slashes are substituted with "%2F". This is the same as how native FileMaker style paths are handled and also makes it possible to differentiate from the folder separator.

More detailed information on the changes and improvements implemented in Troi File Plug-in 5.5.1 can be found at: <http://www.troi.com/software/filehistory.html>.

All features and functions also work in a runtime solution. The plug-in adds 62 functions to FileMaker Pro, giving you limitless possibilities in managing your system outside of the database. We invite you to test drive the new functions and see what you can do with it!
