[prMac.com] Oakland, California - Beezwax Datatools and FM::Nexus today are pleased to announce the release of Inspector Pro 3.0v2, an update to the leading tool for analyzing and debugging FileMaker database systems. Inspector Pro 3.0v2 now supports FileMaker Server, allowing a team of developers to easily collaborate on database optimization. In addition, Inspector Pro 3.0v2 files can be opened on iPad using FileMaker Go. Inspector Pro 3.0v2 also gathers a summary of unreferenced objects in a FileMaker database solution, and the update includes various fixes to address known issues.
"Inspector Pro 3.0v2 supports the many ways that developers work on optimizing their FileMaker database solutions" explained Vincenzo Menanno, founder of FM:Nexus and Director of FileMaker Development for Beezwax Datatools. "FileMaker developers naturally want to collaborate via FileMaker Server and view files with FileMaker Go on iPad. For database analysis and debugging, now they can do this using Inspector 3.0v2."
Inspector Pro 3.0v2's new support for FileMaker Server allows multiple developers to collaborate more easily on database optimization. This is useful for multiple developers working together on a project. They can take advantage of the the rich cross-referencing available with Inspector Pro, sharing a centrally generated list of problems, warnings and suggestions.
Any Inspector Pro 3.0v2 file can now be opened on iPad using FileMaker Go, providing another convenient view of database issues for developers. In addition, Inspector Pro 3.0v2 itself can check other FileMaker Pro databases for compatibility when deployed on iPad or iPhone with FileMaker Go.
In addition to showing references for Field, Script and Layout items, Inspector Pro 3.0v2's report on unreferenced items enables developers to remove unused database elements.
About Inspector Pro 3:
Inspector Pro 3 is the leading tool for diagnosing, debugging and documenting FileMaker databases. Inspector Pro works quickly to identify hard-to-find issues, compare database versions for changes, and identify all dependencies and uses of any element in a solution. Inspector Pro 3 works by using a FileMaker Database Design Report (DDR) to generate a list of database problems that need addressing. Inspector Pro proactively provides suggestions for developers to fix the generated list of database issues.
