Filemaker is like one of those abusive partners you can't seem to live without but know in your heart of hearts you should have left a decade ago. It's supremely easy to rapidly develop small and medium scale database applications with a fully fledged (if rather unique) relational database back end... Problem is, presentation, logic and data pretty much all get mashed into a single monolithic block, so anything larger soon becomes an absolute nightmare to maintain. The thing is, there is nothing else quite like it on the market and Apple (Claris) know this, which is why they are basically gouging their customers for all they are worth. Great product with possibly the least attractive pricing model this side of Oracle.

Filemaker Server v17 is a good product. More importantly, Filemaker Inc., the company, is committed to moving the product forward. That includes integrating with new technologies, such as javascript, and fostering a collegial, informed developer community.

FM Server 16.0.4 doesn't support Mac OS 10.11 anymore...16.0.3 does. Come on FileMaker! A bug fix within a main version shouldn't change the supported platform. It seems you're on behalf of apple to push the users to unintended upgrades so they have to buy new hardware. For me it's time to switch to a Windows machine as server. Bye bye.
