SQL Maestro Group is happy to announce the release of Firebird Maestro 11.11, a powerful Windows GUI solution for Firebird administration and database development.

Please consider the list of new features implemented in this version since the last official release:

Server management extensions:

  • The Split Table Wizard has been implemented. This feature allows you to refactor your database schema vertically splitting an existing table into two tables that is useful, for example, if you need to enforce referential integrity on a set of columns. Generated SQL scripts will modify the primary table, create a secondary table with a primary key from shared columns (i.e. columns that exist in both primary and secondary tables), and then transfer data from the primary table to the secondary one without duplicating of data. To invoke the wizard, use the popup menu of the corresponding node at the Explorer tree or the Main Menu | Object | Split Table menu item.
  • Transaction Browser becomes available for embedded servers ver. 2.5+.
  • DML Stored Procedure Generator: now Firebird Maestro automatically grants the corresponding permissions for generated procedures to manipulate with source tables.

Interface improvements:

  • The SQL editor component has been dramatically improved (applied to SQL Editor, SQL Script Editor, and editors of objects containing SQL bodies such as views, stored procedures, and triggers):
    • Unicode support has been implemented. Starting with this version you can view and edit queries and scripts containing string literals in almost any possible language including, for example, Russian, Chinese and Japanese.

      Also it becomes possible to load/save files in different encodings. If you try to save an SQL script containing non-locale characters to a file in an incompatible encoding, a warning about a potential loss of data will be issued.

    • Text change markers are now at your disposal. Yellow markers show changed but unsaved lines of code, and green markers show changes in this session that have been saved.

    • Now the application allows you to use Code snippets, segments of reusable code that you can copy into the editor. To insert a snippet into the edited text, use the corresponding item of the popup menu or Ctrl+J shortcut.

    • The code folding appearance has been updated. In particular, the new version introduces support for fold signs as well as improved look and feel of the folding margin and hints.

  • Table Editor features:
    • Another way of index creating has been implemented. Now you can create a new index directly from the Fields tab of the table editor. To add an index, select column(s) the new index to consist of and use the Create index on columns... command.

    • Foreign key references i.e. foreign keys created in other tables and referencing for columns of the current one, are now displayed well.
  • The Execute at cursor command has been added to SQL Editor (available in the Navigation bar or with Ctrl+F9 shortcut). Use this command to execute statements the cursor is over without selecting them.
  • Database Designer features:
    • Now you can view all columns included in a foreign key by selecting the relation based on the foreign key.

    • All print options are now preserved between sessions.
  • Visual Query Builder: the Create view from SQL link has been added to the Navigation panel. This feature allows you to create a view based on a SELECT query prepared within the builder as quickly as possible.
  • BLOB Viewer: starting with this version it's possible to view or edit BLOB data as PDF document.

  • Prepared database reports now run fine on UNIX systems.
  • Table Editor Options: starting with this version it's possible to allow the application to open details at the Data tab automatically.
  • A Spanish translation is now included into the installation package. Other available languages are English, German, French and Italian.
  • Data Import: now each time you start the wizard to import data to a table it stores all the options as them were set on the previous session of working with this table.

In addition to this, several bugs have been fixed and some other minor improvements and corrections have been made.
