SQL Maestro Group is happy to announce the release of Firebird Maestro 12.10, 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:

New features:

  • 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: 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.

  • 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.
