Refactoring in dbForge Studio for MySQL, v.6.0 Beta
Just a couple days ago, Devart, software development company, has released the 6.0 Beta Version of its MySQL GUI tool – dbForge Studio for MySQL.
The latest version is jam-packed with completely new features. Let's take a look at some of the few most significant, and explore the following:
Now database objects can be renamed without thinking about consequences - the application will generate an update script and you'll only have to execute it to update links to the renamed object in the whole database.
Query builder with support of DML statements and usability improvements
Working with queries was improved.
Improved code completion
Code Completion feature now offers completely new possibilities. Devart team has done a great job to provide a stunning ease of use and effectiveness of code completion for MySQL database, as it previously did in its tools for SQL Server and Orcale.
Automated data report delivery
This improvement allows delivering generated reports to the requested destination using one of available methods - e-mail, ftp, or shared folder.
Code Snippets Manager
Code Templates feature was renamed to Code Snippets. New Snippets Manager allows adding new snippets and editing existing ones.
New window docking system
You can perform different tasks on several monitors at once using one application instance.
Application appearance improved
Devart has followed the Microsoft tendency to change application appearance. That's why they decided to add Metropolis and VS2010 skins to give application a new look.
Data export to SQL statements
Improved database object editors
New features in the data comparison tool
Support of MySQL pluggable authentication when creating a connection to MySQL server
Support of Windows authentication when creating a connection to MySQL server
