  • Functions returning UTF-8 text not validate the UTF-8 in order to avoid FileMaker crashing with invalid UTF-8 characters.
  • Improved detection of undeclared variables in script editor.
  • Restored compatibility to FileMaker 10 on Windows. This was broken due to using FileMaker 12 only functions which are now loaded on demand.
  • The highlighting of variable names being undeclared is now off by default and can be enabled by SyntaxColoring.CheckVariableDeclaration.Enable command.
  • Updated SQLAPI++ 4.1.2.
