has received an incremental upgrade, bringing the database application to version 6.0v3.
In FileMaker Pro 6.0v1 and 6.0v2, 4-digit year dates in imported or converted files could be displayed using the incorrect century — this has been fixed in the update. As a result, dates with two-digit years are processed as they were in FileMaker Pro 3.0 through 5.5, rather than as described in the FileMaker Pro 6 Getting Started Guide. This includes two-digit year dates that are input or modified via Web Companion. To improve the accuracy of date input, FileMaker recommends that you always enter dates in four-digit year form, and use the validation option that displays an error message when a date entry contains a two-digit year.
FileMaker Pro 6 was announced in July. FileMaker Pro 6 is available now for a suggested list price of US $299; upgrades are $149. It shares the same file format as FileMaker Pro 5 and 5.5, so FileMaker Pro 6 solutions work with FileMaker Server 5 and 5.5. The current FileMaker Server software supports FileMaker Pro 5, 5.5 and 6.
The 6.0v3 update can be downloaded from the FileMaker Inc. Web site.
