FILEMAKER DEVELOPER CONFERENCE - Phoenix, Ariz. - OmniPilot Software, Inc., a provider of cross platform business opportunity management software, announces Lasso Professional 7.1, a new version compatible with FileMaker Pro 7.
Lasso's compatibility with FileMaker renews the long-standing relationship between FileMaker's developers and the Lasso community. Lasso allows users to tie FileMaker data to the Web because it works interchangeably with FileMaker Pro 4, 5, or 6 and now with FileMaker Server Advanced 7.
Lasso allows complete control over the look and feel of your Web site and Lasso's powerful, flexible programming language allows data in FileMaker databases to be manipulated as an alternative to using the built-in script functionality. Lasso's built-in session handling and caching offset some of the work from FileMaker allowing the greatest Web site performance possible.
Lasso Professional 7.1 also works with MySQL and JDBC data sources allowing data from FileMaker and other back-end data sources to be combined in a single Web site or for data to be moved from data source to data source. Lasso also provides enhanced security through its built-in security system, protecting all access to FileMaker via the Web because FileMaker can be configured so only your Lasso server can access it. Chad Roll, Chief Operating Officer, OmniPilot Software, stated,
"The FileMaker development community has historically been big supporters of Lasso technology, this release symbolizes our renewed commitment to FileMaker." Commenting on OmniPilot's latest release, Dominique Goupil, President, FileMaker Inc., stated, "We are happy to be working with Lasso's new owners, OmniPilot Software, and are very pleased with their commitment to revive the relationship with the FileMaker development community. The Lasso product line has been used by thousands of users to bring FileMaker data to the Web and we believe this new version will continue that tradition."
