[] February 6th, 2007, Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands--Troi
Automatisering today announced the availability of Troi File Plug-in
3.6 for FileMaker Pro 8.5.

Troi File Plug-in 3.6 runs natively with FileMaker Pro 8.5 and
FileMaker Advanced 8.5, but also with FileMaker Pro 7 and FileMaker
Pro 8.

Maintenance release

Version 3.6 is a maintenance release, which fixes a few bugs.

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
- query detailed information of files: the size on disk, creation and modification dates and much more
- launch files with their appropriate application directly from FileMaker Pro
- read and write IPTC meta data to JPEG images!

What is changed

The improvements in version 3.6 are:
- (Windows) fixed a bug where, with both QuickTime and the Troi File Plug-in installed, copying or pasting could lead to a freeze.
- (Mac OS X) Fixed a bug with filtering in TrFile_SelectFileDialog.
- Fixed a problem with the TrFile_MetaData crashing with some images containing specific undefined EXIF data tags.
- Improved TrFile_SetMetaData: IPTC meta data can now also be added to JPEG files that did not yet have any previous IPTC or Photoshop data.
- (Mac OS X) Fixed a bug where copying a file to a remote volume could erroneously return a disk full error ($$-34).

Suggested Uses

Troi File Plug-in allows you to:
- Batch import any file, anywhere
- Let the user select a folder and process the contents of this folder
- Create a web site by exporting multiple HTML files
- Update solutions, by moving database files into place
- Read and write custom formatted files, for example from legacy systems
- Catalog complete projects, including pictures, and the meta data like EXIF and IPTC

All these features also work in a runtime solution. We invite you to test drive the new functions and see what you can do with it!
