SQL Maestro Group is happy to announce the release of Firebird Maestro 10.3, 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:

  • This version has been successfully tested with Firebird 2.5 RC2 (the latest Firebird version available at the moment). Also we have added support for some Firebird 2.5 new features:
    • Binary BLOBs are now extracted into output scripts as hexadecimal literals (Get SQL Dump and Extract Database wizards).
    • Field Editor: starting with this version it is possible to change the expression for the computed columns.
    • Multiple database connections become available for the embedded server i.e. the Do not open separated connection option now works as expected in this case.
  • SQL Editor: now our software displays the results for the INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE statements containing the RETURNING clause (Firebird 2.1+).
  • The Update Existing Records option has been added to the Data Import wizard. If this option is turned ON, the records will be either updated or inserted (Firebird 2.1+).

  • Create Database Wizard and all the wizards available in the Maintenance menu (Backup Database, Restore Database, etc.) now work fine with Firebird servers installed on non-standard ports.

Interface improvements:

  • Database profile management improvements:
    • Starting with this version it is possible to reorder servers in the Explorer Tree as well as reorder databases from the same server. You can also sort servers and databases in an alphabetical order.
    • Now all the database profiles related to the same server may be deleted at once.
    • The Rename Database Profile command has been added to the popup menu. Use this command to rename a profile without opening its editor.
  • Data Grid features the following things:
    • Multi-column sorting has been implemented. To sort data on multiple columns, use the Advanced sort command from the grid's header popup menu.

  • Database Designer: a possibility to select objects with Ctrl has been implemented.

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