Version History

1. New in FileMaker Server Advanced 8.0v4

1.1. XML improvements

1.1.1. Fixed a problem with portal data in XML results. In some cases data was output in the order that the fields are drawn on the layout so that related set data is broken up by non-portal fields. All the related-set field-definition elements will now aggregate together and display correctly.

1.1.2. Fixed a problem that caused FMPXMLRESULT.xml to return invalid XML. This occurred when FMPXMLRESULT.xml referenced a layout that contained a field from an unrelated table or a field in a related table that contained no data.


1.1.3. Fixed a problem that caused invalid XML data to be returned if the data is from a related field which is outside of a portal on a layout.

1.2. Fixed a problem that caused an Apache Tomcat HTTP 500 error to be returned with a stack trace if the document() function attempts to load from an invalid URL.


1.3. Upgraded Xalan version to 2.7.0 to improve support for EXSLT functionality.

* Due to the large file size, the download may take longer than expected.
