Apple releases OS X 10.8.2 & 10.7.5

OS X catsApple has been busy with a slew of upgrades all timed to come out in sync with iPhone 5 and iOS 6. Apple released OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 and OS X Lion 10.7.5. Precursor reminds our customers not to apply this update themselves as we will be updating their systems after testing has completed in our lab environment (nicknamed "muppet labs" - Precursor trivia department).

FileMaker Business AlliancePrecursor is a member of the FileMaker Business Alliance and we have completed our transition to FileMaker Server 12 to make our hardware, software and trouble report web pages FileMaker-licious. In fact, at Precursor, we use FileMaker for practically everything even including this here newletter. Its also been running parts of our website since FileMaker 6. And so we have gone through many conversions, including Palm OS/ FM Sync / CDML / FMTouch / XSLT / FileMaker Go / and now, PHP. We now have secure and live access to critical company data wherever we are using Mac, PC, iPhone or iPad. It all makes a fascinating story which warm the cockles of your FileMaker heart.
