SQL Maestro Group is happy to announce the release of Firebird Maestro 8.7, 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:
  • Support for Windows "Trusted User" security has been implemented (Firebird 2.1 onward). The Trusted User's security context is passed to the Firebird server and, if it succeeds, it is used to determine the Firebird security user name.
Interface improvements:
  • Data grid features the following things:

    • Starting with this version it is possible to use the lookup editor for a column, which is linked by a foreign key with a (single) column from another table. The editor displays the contents of parent table’s columns within the dropdown window.

    • A possibility of displaying data in the master-detail form has been incorporated into the Table Editor (multiple detail pages can be displayed for a single master row). Use the Show/Hide details link at the editor’s navigation bar to activate/deactivate this view mode.

    • It is now possible to restrict maximum column width.

  • 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.

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

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