FileMaker II is the first version of FileMaker released by Claris, in July 1989.
Sometime between 1983 and 1985, the original FileMaker was developed by Nashoba Systems. Forethought, which had sold the IBM PC database Nutshell, acquired FileMaker and sold a version called FileMaker Plus, around 1986 or 87. Not to be outdone, Nashoba took it back and offered FileMaker 4 in 1988. Within a couple months, an 800 pound gorilla named Claris stepped in and changed the name to FileMaker II.

After Claris released FileMaker II, next came the first FileMaker Pro, currently on version 11. For those that still use FileMaker Pro this still looks remarkably like the current version (OK, I'm still on FMP9).
