SQL Maestro Group is happy to announce the release of SQL Maestro for MySQL 8.3, a powerful Windows GUI solution for MySQL administration and database development.

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

Server management extensions:
  • The main feature of the new version is a possibility of connecting to remote MySQL servers with restricted access via HTTP tunneling. The technology works as follows:

    • Upload the connection PHP script to your website. The script is named mysql_tunnel.php and can be found under the installation folder, usually C:\Program Files\SQL Maestro Group\SQL Maestro for MySQL.

    • Test the script in your web-browser (optionally).

    • Enter the script URL in the Create Profiles Wizard, Create Database Wizard, or Edit Database Profile dialog. Of course you should select the "I have to use HTTP tunneling" option in any of these windows.

  • Starting with this version you can set up default character set and collation in Create Database Wizard.

  • Now you can specify the client encoding in the connection properties. Default value is UTF-8 (do not change it without necessity).

  • SQL Formatter now understands expressions like INTERVAL 600 MINUTES.

  • The Quick Connect mode has been implemented. Use it to skip metadata refreshing when connecting to a database (for example, to execute a query or SQL script).

Interface improvements:
  • A French localization is now included into the installation package.

  • This version of our software is fully compatible with large fonts (120 DPI).

  • Extract database wizard: common database properties and program info are now included into the result scripts.

  • SQL Editor: a popup menu has been added to each query tab. Using this menu you can create a new query, close existing one, save the query to profile, etc even if editor's navigation bar is closed.

  • Create Database Wizard, Create Profiles Wizard, and object creation wizards become resizable.

  • Data import wizard: the interface for adding and editing of replacements has been slightly improved.

  • The F11 key is now used to show/hide the Explorer tree.

  • Data grid options: it is now possible to restrict maximum column width.

  • SQL Script Editor settings: the "Use script runner for large scripts" option has been added.

Important fixes:
  • Data in UTF-8 encoding are now displayed correctly for MySQL 4.1.

  • Extract Database Wizard now works fine even if a user has no permissions to obtain view definitions.

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