Apple's wholly-owned cross-platform database software provider FileMaker has released an update for its bespoke business application for FileMaker 6.0, FileMaker Recruiter.

The FileMaker Recruiter 1.1 update provides a built-in template for importing Excel-based data.

The company is also demonstrating a selection of databasing solutions running on Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther), with a focus on small business and education. Third-party FileMaker developers with solutions on show include appointment- and project-management software from Beeswax, a fund-raising solution from InResonance, and a selection of database front-ends for use in education.
