APIs, technologies, or features to be deprecated
As FileMaker Pro evolves, the list of supported technologies, APIs, and features will change. As part of this evolution, certain operating systems versions, hardware, and features may be deprecated in favor of newer ones. While deprecation does not mean the immediate deletion of an item, FileMaker recommends that you migrate your solution away from deprecated technologies, as these technologies may be removed in a future version of the product.
