FileMaker Pro 10

FileMaker Pro 10 is out, which is great news for the zillions of design firms that use FileMaker to keep track of assets, as well as for billing and for hundreds of other data-tracking tasks.

The interface has changed a bit: the new Status Toolbar at the top replaces the status area (on the left) and the toolbar (at the top) of previous versions. But more importantly, you can now save and recall Find operations, send email directly from FileMaker, view summary reports in the Browse view, and include triggers in scripts so that user actions cause scripts to run.
