The folks at
demoed FileMaker Pro 5 running on the Mac OS X Public Beta at MacWorld San Francisco this week.
The Carbonized version of FileMaker is on schedule with over 90 percent of it completed. The company told MacCentral that it should be finished and ship within a “reasonable time” after Mac OS X goes on sale March 24.
“The performance and scalability of Mac OS X are going to enable phenomenal Macintosh applications,” said Dominique Goupil, FileMaker president. “FileMaker is thrilled to preview our Mac OS X work in progress and let Expo attendees share our excitement.”
FileMaker Pro is the best selling information management system from the wholly owned subsidiary of Apple. The company will bring its entire product line — FileMaker Pro 5 Unlimited, FileMaker Server, and FileMaker Developer — to OS X.
FileMaker is also demonstrating the integration between FileMaker Pro 5 and Microsoft Office 2001 for Mac at its Macworld San Francisco booth.
