Compatibility
FileMaker Pro 10/Pro 10 Advanced databases use the same file format (.fp7) as FileMaker Pro 9/Pro 9 Advanced and FileMaker Pro 8.x/Pro 8.x Advanced therefore databases can easily be shared between these versions. While FileMaker Pro 7/Developer 7 have the same file format, they are no longer supported due to product obsolescence.
Features specific to the newer versions are only supported in the newer versions (e.g. Script Trigger and Send Mail via SMTP introduced in FileMaker Pro 10/Pro 10 Advanced, are only supported by FileMaker Pro 10/Pro 10 Advanced).

Additional requirements (all platforms)
Networking:TCP/IP: limited to nine simultaneous FileMaker client connections; each client requires a licensed copy of the software; see FileMaker Server 10 for increased capacity. FileMaker Pro 10 supports Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) addresses, as well as IPv4 addresses.
Any computer accessing FileMaker Pro files over a network will need to have a licensed installation of versions 8.x, 9 or 10 of FileMaker Pro or FileMaker Pro Advanced. FileMaker Pro 7 and FileMaker Developer 7 use the same file format as FileMaker Pro 10/Pro 10 Advanced but are no longer supported due to product obsolescence.
Instant Web Publishing:A host computer with continuous access to the Internet or intranet via TCP/IP. (FileMaker Pro 10/Pro 10 Advanced can manage up to five simultaneous Instant Web Publishing sessions. See FileMaker Server 10 Advanced for increased capacity.)
Web browser requirements:To use a database shared with Instant Web Publishing, Windows web users need Microsoft Internet Explorer version 7.0 or Firefox 3.0. On the Mac, web users need Safari 3.1.2 or Firefox 3.0. On both platforms, some earlier versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer and Safari are blocked. Other Mozilla family browsers are not blocked but are unsupported and users will receive a dialog encouraging them to upgrade to a supported browser. JavaScript must be enabled in the web browser.
