FileMaker EasySync: Beta 8 Now Available – Tim Dietrich
Tim has more FileMaker pans in the oven than a chef on Super Bowl Sunday! I’m pleased to announce that EasySync “Beta 8” is now available for download. You can grab a copy from the EasySync Web site. This is an important release for many reasons. One, there are a lot of significant changes in it, which we’ll get to in just a moment. But perhaps most importantly, this is the last “beta” release of EasySync. The plan is to fix any bugs that are reported, and then in a week or so, officially release EasySync Version 1. So it was important that I get this release as close to perfect as possible
Stay tuned I have more on the way… SideShow Don
