AnySQL Maestro 16.12 released
Dec 12, 2016
SQL Maestro Group is happy to announce the release of AnySQL Maestro 13.2, a universal powerful solution for administering any database engine (SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, MS Access, etc.) that is accessible via ODBC driver or OLE DB provider.
Please consider the list of new features implemented in this version since the last official release:
- AnySQL Maestro has been optimized to work with some popular DBMS. Also we have successfully tested the software with the latest versions of database servers and OLE DB Providers / ODBC drivers.
Nullable Column Checker has been implemented. This feature allows you to refactor your database schema by enforcing omitted NOT NULL constraints. It is useful, for example, if you have got a legacy schema with a lot of columns allowing NULL values and plenty of data. To invoke the wizard, use the appropriate link in the Generate SQL section of the table popup menu at the Explorer tree.
Data Import features:
Starting with this version it's possible to import data from several files at a time. To import data from multiple files with the same structure, set the mask of the file names to the corresponding field. To see the list of matching files, use with the button on the right.
The Column Builder for text files with fixed column width has been redesigned. Now to set the correspondence between table columns and areas of a text file, you can either input offset and width for each column directly into the controls, or define these values by clicking the left mouse button in the right area of the tool.
- Now it's possible to add current timestamp to the log file name using the %ts:TIMESTAMP_FORMAT% string template. Examples of valid datetime formats are: 'YYYY-MM-DD', 'YYYY-MM-DD-HH24-MI', 'YYYY-MM-DD-HH24-MI-SS', and so on.
- 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.
- Starting from this version it is possible to import empty values as empty strings (while previous versions always imported such values as NULLs).
- Default Data Import settings can now be set up in the Program Options dialog.
- Starting with this version it's possible to import data from several files at a time. To import data from multiple files with the same structure, set the mask of the file names to the corresponding field. To see the list of matching files, use with the button on the right.
- Data Export:
Support for Json file format has been implemented.
- From now on it becomes possible to specify caption, width, and alignment for output columns (when applicable). Also it becomes possible to add current timestamp to the output file name.
- Support for Json file format has been implemented.
- From now on it becomes possible to execute custom SQL scripts in all database connections established by the software.
- Support for Adobe Reader DC has been added to BLOB Editor. Also the editor window now saves its size and position between times it is opened (for each table).
- Starting from this version it is possible to select a tab color for windows that belong to a certain database. This could help you to distinguish windows with the same caption but a different parent database (such as SQL Editor) with ease. The color can be specified at the Options tab in the Database Profile Properties dialog. For the same purpose tab hints now include the profile name.
Starting from this version a warning message appears on creating a table without a primary key constraint.
- In Data Grids and Data Input Forms computed columns are marked by a green calculator.
- Support for a number of new encryption algorithms has been added to Data Grid. Now it is possible to encrypt the value of a text column, for example, by SHA512 or Haval224 algorithm with a couple of mouse clicks.
- Data Input Form: controls containing values of primary and foreign key columns are now marked with the 'gold key' and 'silver key' images accordingly. Controls containing values of required (NOT NULL) columns are marked with a red asterisk.
- Data Grid: To reset all grid settings to defaults, open the Data tab when holding the Ctrl key.
In addition to this, several bugs have been fixed and some other minor improvements and corrections have been made.
