Hi-Voltage has released UpdateGenie, a development tool built to let FileMaker developers create and distribute update packages. Its cross-version capabilities allow any previous version to be updated with a single package.
There’s also an option to update specific files. UpdateGenie supports FileMaker Server via an AutoUpdate plug-in, works with runtime solutions, and touts a restore function that reverts the solution back to it pre-update condition. It’s compatible with Mac OS X and costs US$258 for a single-user license.
InterACTIVE-Technology has released ActiveDeveloper version 2.14 for MacOS X (10.1 and higher). The latest version of the Runtime Objective-C & C IDE, JIT compiler and debugger now has support for QuickTime.
You can develop QuickTime applications in Objective-C. There’s a new QT movie example implementing a QuickTime Movie Player to demonstrate how it works. ActiveDeveloper 2.14 also has a new release of the “ActiveDeveloper User Guide,” which covers how to use the ActiveDeveloper IDE with the pre-cooked manual demos contained in the download package.
ActiveDeveloper costs US$49 for a single-platform, single-user license, $99 for a single-platform, multi-user license, and $249 for a single-platform, five-pack user license.
