I am running FME 2023.2 and have a dynamic workspace that is creating a File Geodatabase (FGDB) with a FeatureWriter, and I am running against ArcGIS Pro 3.2. Recently, I have wanted to access some annotation class properties in that GDB, but I find that I cannot access them. ArcGIS Pro says that the FGDB is version 10.0 and that I need to upgrade the FGDB to the latest version to activate those properties. I looked at the log for the last run that built the FGDB, and I see "Created and connected to the ArcGIS 10.0 File Geodatabase at '[Location]\\template_General_Prod.gdb'" I checked the FeatureReader geodatabase version parameter, and it is set to "Current." So, ArcGIS Pro is telling me that there is a later FGDB version than 10.0, while FME, though set to "Current," is creating a 10.0 version FGDB.
I am confused. Can FME only create a maximum 10.0 FGDB version, or is there actually no later FGDB version ... or is something else going on?
