This is an email I sent tonight to several friends who use Filemaker, with links to some good resources.

I stumbled across this video and have just watched the whole thing, I hadn’t sought a lot of into about FMP 7 (esp FMP 7 Server Advanced) but this gave me a lot of info and really piqued my interest:

The most impressive thing was probably the demo of instant web publishing at the end, which previously had been basically useless (as the presenter concedes) in earlier versions. Wow is it ever powerful now. May almost invalidate the need for actual client licenses for many users in an organization, from what they show and describe.

CDML is gone in version 7, web publishing is via XML. Lots of new learning curves, but substantial performance increases. I am esp wanting to deploy some SSL web interfaces soon so doing that with 7 Server Advanced is a top interest of mine. If any of you have thoughts or insights into that please let me know.

I incidentally found this on a Univ of Utah Mac OS documentation page, which has a ton of other good links and resources:

This is the homepage for the Univ of Utah’s Mac support group, what a robust set of resources:

I had initially done a google search for info about optimal quicktime export settings, and found this page which gives some good guidelines for keyframes, data rates, etc when exporting with expert settings from iMovie or QT Pro:

I am posting this on my blog as an entry more for myself in case I lose these bookmarks and want to go back to this…..

I really am interested in any feedback / ideas about migrating to FMP 7, esp for web applications using SSL. At our college we presently have Lasso 3 which is used for some solutions, and most use FMP 5.5 Server and FMP 5 Unlimited. I have Dragon Web Surveys running on FMP 6.
