FileMaker Pro now Leopard-compatible (with caveat)

IWP still doesn't work; neither do Server editions.

FileMaker has released a downloadable update to make FileMaker Pro 9 and FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced compatible with Mac OS X Leopard. The new releases (both number 9.0v2) also address other issues, and the company recommends that all users of FileMaker Pro 9 and FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced download it. There's one caveat, however:

"Please note that this update does not fix issues with the FileMaker Pro 9 Instant Web Publishing (IWP) feature running on Leopard. We intend to make IWP compatible with Leopard in an update expected in December 2007."

FileMaker says it expects to deliver a Leopard compatibility update for our Server products in early 2008. FileMaker Server 9 and FileMaker Server 9 Advanced currently do not deploy properly on Leopard. The company suggests that FileMaker Pro 9 and FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced clients running on Leopard do work with FileMaker Server and Server Advanced running on Tiger or earlier versions of Mac OS X.
