[prMac.com] Oakland, California - Beezwax Datatools, Inc. released InspectorPro 4, a major new version of the leading developer tool for FileMaker 12 database analysis. Rewritten from the ground up to take advantage of FileMaker 12's new architecture, InspectorPro 4 is up to 10 times faster than previous versions at processing FileMaker Database Design Reports. New features provide deeper analysis of database elements, a central dashboard, localized UI options, and powerful data visualizations - enabling FileMaker developers to discover more about their databases than ever before.
"InspectorPro 4 is blazing fast. We took advantage of many new features in FileMaker 12, such as ExecuteSQL to rewrite the product from the ground up," said Vincenzo Menanno, creator of InspectorPro and Director of FileMaker Development for Beezwax. "A new centralized dashboard, sophisticated in-depth reports plus InspectorPro's unique data visualization capabilities, all enable deeper discovery of critical database information that FileMaker developers need to manage during the development process."
InspectorPro 4 introduces the following features for FileMaker database analysis:
* Central Dashboard - InspectorPro 4 consolidates critical information about database elements into a central UI
* Deeper Analysis - Comparison, dependency and other analysis reports offer expanded information about database elements, as well as deeper levels of information
* Localized UI - InspectorPro 4 is available with interfaces in English, French, German, Japanese and several other languages
* Data Visualization - Script Universe and Security Perspective visualizations have been updated for FileMaker 12 development
Beezwax is demonstrating the new InspectorPro 4 at the 2012 FileMaker Developers Conference in Miami, Fla, July 16-19, 2012.
InspectorPro is the leading tool for diagnosing, debugging and documenting FileMaker databases. InspectorPro works quickly to identify hard-to-find issues, compare database versions for changes, and identify all dependencies, unreferenced items and uses of any element in a solution. InspectorPro works by using a FileMaker Database Design Report (DDR) to generate a list of database problems that need addressing. InspectorPro proactively provides suggestions for developers to fix the generated list of database issues, and unique data visualizations enable developers to discover more about their FileMaker solutions.
Compatibility and System Requirements:
InspectorPro 4 works with FileMaker 12 databases and is available now for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and OS X 10.7 Lion. A version for Windows is scheduled for release in Fall 2012. FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced is required for a developer to generate the DDR (Database Design Report) to be used for analysis.
Pricing and Availability:
InspectorPro 4 is priced at $495 (USD) for new customers, and is available for purchase and immediate download. A Team License (for up to 5 users) is $1,295. A full-feature trial download is available. Upgrade pricing, and options for Educational and Non-profit pricing are available via Beezwax. The previous product version, Inspector Pro 3, is available for purchase for use with FileMaker Pro versions 8 through 11.
