Testimonials
Neil McPherson: "Thanks very much for your advice. I would just like to add that SQL Maestro makes life so much easier to work with Firebird, I have tried some of the other management tools but Maestro is such a nicely organized product and it has never let me down".
Ingo Bindbeutel: "I did buy Firebird Maestro before, because it is an excellent application and does a very very good work for me! I tried AnySQL and I did buy it, because it's a wonderful application too! Both are similar to use and easy to work with it! I am impressed by the quality and stability of the product! To all members of the SQL Maestro - Team: "keep going this way and make many people happy in using your software!" Thank you for making my life easier and my work productive".

SQLite Maestro

SQL Maestro Group is happy to announce the release of SQLite Maestro 12.11, a powerful Windows GUI solution for SQLite server administration and database development.

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

Server management extensions:

  • SQLite Maestro has been successfully tested with the recent SQLite versions. The latest available library (3.7.14.1) is now included into the installation package (special thanks to the wxSQLite3 team).
  • Support for some advanced FTS4 options has been added. Also all full-text search tables are now marked with a special image in the Explorer tree to improve the usability.

  • Support for the XML data type has been implemented. The values of this data type now can be inserted/updated in a modal editor with the XML syntax highlighting.
  • Support for binary stored GUIDs has been added. To instruct SQLite Maestro how to interpret values of the GUID data type, select the appropriate option in the Edit Database Profile dialog.

  • Starting from this version the Get SQL Dump tool by default generates multi-insert statements for SQLite 3.7.11 and higher.
  • All the missing SQLite functions and pragmas have been added to the Code Completion list that can be invoked by pressing Ctrl+Space in any editor.
  • The .sqlite file extension has been added to the Select Database dialog.

Interface improvements:

  • This version comes with Report Designer, a simple-to-use and elegant tool to prepare data for reading, viewing, and printing in a polished look.

    Use this tool to create database reports using drag-and-drop functionality and rich formatting options. To invoke the window, use the Main Menu | Tools | Report Designer menu item.
  • The Start Page has been redesigned in order to provide quick access to recently connected database profiles and display the latest company news.
  • SQL Editor features:
    • Now on executing several statements from a single editor tab (did you know about such a possibility?), the corresponding result tab is marked with an appropriate image.

    • Starting from this version you can copy the selected text from any editor to Clipboard as a ready-to-use string written in one of the following programming languages: C#, C++, Delphi (Object Pascal), and Java. This feature is accessible in the Export section of the editor area popup menu.

  • Database Explorer: now it is possible to assign a custom color to a certain database profile. For example, you can mark development and production databases in different colors in order to prevent casual metadata or data changes in the production. The desired color can be selected at the Options tab in the Edit Database Profile dialog.

  • Check editor: an ability of editing check condition in a separate window has been added.
  • Hints for foreign key columns now include the name of the parent table.

  • Drag-n-drop from Windows Explorer to SQL Editor and SQL Script Editor has been added. Now to open a file in one of these editors, just drag it at Windows Explorer and drop at the editor area.
  • The performance of SQL Script Editor has been significantly increased especially on large script editing. In addition to this the name of the file loaded to the editor area is now displayed at the right bottom corner of the window.
  • Script Runner has been slightly changed in appearance and performance:
    • Now the name of the database the script to be run on is displayed at the top of the window, the name of the script file may be quoted, and the script files in the UTF-8 encoding may optionally start with a byte order mark.
    • Starting with this version it's possible to execute archived scripts directly from .zip files. The tool unpacks zip archives to temporary files by itself for further executing.
  • Data Grid features:
    • Now it is possible to display images directly in the grid. To enable/disable this view mode or change the image fitting, use the Manage inline images item of the column popup menu.

    • Multi-column lookup editors become available. Such editors modify values of several columns in the record simultaneously in order to guarantee referential integrity.

    • Data Input Form has been significantly improved. Now it simplifies the input of data with lookup menus for columns linked with foreign keys and a calculator for DECIMAL columns.
    • Now the headers of primary and foreign key columns are marked with the 'gold key' and 'silver key' images accordingly. The existence of any column marked with a gold key in the dataset means that you can modify/delete the records of this dataset without risk of updating/deleting several records at a time.

  • Data Import features:
    • From now on it is possible to import data from CSV files that contain multi-line strings.
    • A possibility of setting the correspondence between source and target columns by column name has been implemented (previous versions allow you to set such a correspondence only by column index).

  • Data Export: now it is possible to specify decimal and thousand separators for the generated files (when applicable).
  • The progress windows are redesigned in the modern style and become more informative.
