Apple subsidiary Claris has announced the release of FileMaker version 19.3, which boasts several new features, including native Apple Silicon support, which provides improved performance on M1 Macs.
The dozens of updates address higher performance, stability, and security as well as introduce the latest technology across all the deployment options for the Claris platform, including:
- Apple silicon: Claris FileMaker Pro and Claris FileMaker Server are the first low-code universal macOS binaries that ensure optimized performance on Apple silicon computers while still offering amazing speed on Intel-based Mac computers.
- Microsoft Edge for Windows: The latest Microsoft Edge WebView2 control replaces Internet Explorer 11 (IE11), which eliminates potential security concerns and ensures full FileMaker extensibility on Windows.
- Significant server enhancements: Introducing Ubuntu, the most popular Linux distribution worldwide; the return of an enhanced log viewer; and many more server fixes and under-the-hood functionality that boost performance, flexibility, stability, and security.
