Troi File Plug-in 8.6.1 for FileMaker Pro 12 to 15

Troi Plug-ins for FileMaker Pro 15new 23 January, 2017 Troi File Plug-in 8.6.1 is the new version of our file manipulation plug-in for FileMaker Pro 12 to 15. This is a maintenance release which has the following fixes and enhancements:

  • (Windows) Better handling of zip files with the UnZIP function, when items are in a subfolder, but the subfolder itself is not present
  • Better parsing of the metadata of newer PDF versions, like PDF 1.7
  • (macOS X) Added timecode info to the result of the TrFile_MetaData( "-GetMovieDescription") function
  • Improved the multi-threading behavior of several functions when running multiple scripts at the same time on FileMaker Server
  • Fixed a bug in the TrFile_SetContents and TrFile_AppendContents functions where extra spurious characters could be written to a file using encoding: -Encoding=ASCII_Windows, when the text contained combining unicode characters
  • (macOS X) Improved the DragAndDrop function to prevent a potential memory leak (when drag and drop handling was not correctly stopped) and a potential crash (when restarting drag and drop multiple times)

Please see the version history page for a complete list of changes in this and earlier versions.
