FileMaker UK's special FileMaker Pro 7 upgrade programme ends on September 17.

The program is available for versions of FileMaker Pro dating as far back as 1993. Licensed owners of FileMaker Pro 2.1, 3.0, 4.x and 5.x can upgrade to the new version for just £119 - the same price as FileMaker 6.0 owners pay to upgrade. Usual proce is £219.

The company also announced it will no longer sell FileMaker Pro 6, FileMaker Developer 6, FileMaker Mobile 2.1, FileMaker Server 5.5 and FileMaker Pro 6 Unlimited as of September 18th, 2004.

“This is the last chance for thousands of FileMaker customers to move up to the ease-of-use and customisability of FileMaker Pro 7, the most highly-regarded version of FileMaker in its history,” said Ryan Rosenberg, vice president of marketing and services.

“It’s very unusual for software companies to offer upgrade pricing for users of versions that were originally available more than ten years ago. But, this release delivers on a decade’s worth of enhancement requests and we wanted all our users to take advantage of it.”

Licensed users of FileMaker Server 5.5, 5.0 or FileMaker Pro Server 3.0, 2.1 may upgrade to FileMaker Server 7 at the low price of £325, a 50 per cent saving off the regular suggested list price. This special pricing will remain effective until September 17th.

All prices exclude VAT.
