Actually, it's been acquired by LassoSoft Inc., a new company separate from but closely connected to Treefrog, and both 8.6 and 9 have been released with further updates to come. More info: http://www.lassosoft.com/

If you need access to FMPro through a web site check out FX.php and FMStudio. Easy to use and a fraction of the cost.

The latest version (8.1.0) is blazing fast. We develop and host solutions for some of the UK's largest blue chips. We could not get products to market as fast and as cost effectively without Lasso. With the release 8.1 it can now compete with PHP and ASP on performance grounds as well. Fantastic!!!

If you're a web developer and have never checked out Lasso, do yourself a favor and download one of their 30-day trials, or at least check out the online language reference at . It's available for Mac, Win, and Lin, and can connect to a wide variety of data sources. The core language is easy to learn yet very full featured. If I had to go back to any of the other web middleware languages I used to use, I think I'd just switch careers instead.

In my experience I've found the Fm Pro/Lasso solution an inexpensive, powerful and easy solution for those people wanting implement a database into their website. Especially for those companies who have used FM for a long time within and now wish to web enable their database.

Just-in-time native compilation for faster response times and a handy drop-down drawer for testing your code as you go.

Lasso integrates with the built-in Apache Web server in OS X or OS X Server. Lasso 9.2 and up run on 64-bit Intel based Macs. A new admin interface added since 9.1 allows developers, hosting providers, and enterprise administrators to manage multiple instances of Lasso instances with ease.The main interface for Lasso Instance Manager consists of a list of all known Lasso 9 instances on that machine. Below this list is a button allowing a new instance to be created.

Each instance in the list shows:
  • Current licensing mode, based on the instance serial number, if any (runs in Developer mode if no license applied)
  • Current run status: red is not running, yellow is running but with a provisional license, green is running and fully licensed
  • Instance version
  • Instance uptime
  • Instance status In addition, a row of buttons permit access to the following:
  • Instance details: instance name, description, url, home path, OS user, host pattern, disable instance, delete instance
  • Instance notes
  • Instance output log
  • Instance environment variables
  • Instance URL link
