Macworld Buying Advice
The file format change can be an issue for larger FileMaker workgroup installations. However, I feel the overall feature set of this upgrade makes this additional effort worthwhile. Tighter integration with the FileMaker Go mobile product can be another compelling reason to consider upgrading your entire FileMaker workgroup installation.
