After many months of development we’re pleased to announce that fmSMS v3 has finally been released. As we mentioned in a previous blog post we decided to take the opportunity with the release of FileMaker Pro v12 to take a step back and see how we could improve fmSMS. We decided this was a great opportunity to start with afresh and see how we could simplify the development of fmSMS to make it even easier for our customers to get up and running.
fmSMS v3 is for FileMaker Pro v12 or later – we decided with the new file format introduced with v12 that we should use that as our base version going forward so we could take advantage of all the new features that v12 has to offer, such as the new layout themes, Exectute SQL and the way plug-ins can be installed. We’ve also added better support for FileMaker Go for the iPad and FileMaker Go for the iPhone and made it easier to utilise FileMaker Server to handle the sending of the SMS Messages.
We’ve also changed the plug-in that we use to the free open source BaseElements plug-in. This allows us to greatly simplify our licenses and include FileMaker Server support as standard. We also reduced the number of files from 3 to 1 and added support for more SMS Gateways around the world.
We’ve also added a new Getting Started Guide to the website and will shortly be uploading some training videos that demonstrate the various features of fmSMS v3. You can download a trial version from the download page and check out the Frequently Asked Questions.
