At first Claris provided only trivial upgrades, limited to making the products continue to run on newer versions of the Macintosh operating system. The product, however, changed little from the last Nashoba version. Several minor versions followed; it was succeeded by FileMaker Pro 1. In the meantime, development began on major overhauls of their entire product line, including FileMaker. Each of these would be eventually released as part of the Pro series of products.
In , Apple decided that Claris should remain a wholly owned subsidiary , as opposed to being completely spun off in an initial public offering. The company president soon left, and over the next year most of the other executives followed. That same year Claris also purchased an integrated application written by two former Claris employees.
After rebranding in a style similar to FileMaker, MacDraw, and MacWrite, it was released in as ClarisWorks , and became another huge success for the company. After a lengthy series of ups and downs, this product was eventually taken back by Apple in and rebranded as AppleWorks for Macintosh. In September , Claris released a cross-platform version for both the Mac and Windows; except for a few platform-specific functions, the program's features and user interface were the same.
Up to this point FileMaker had no real relational capabilities; it was limited to automatically looking up and importing values from other files. It only had the ability to save a state—a filter and a sort, and a layout for the data.
Version 3. The main ClarisWorks development team left Claris, disillusioned with the product and the market, and founded Gobe Software , which produced a Claris-like office suite for BeOS.
