The Technology Explorer v3.5 for IBM DB2 is available!

We've included a half dozen tutorials to help you get started with DB2 9.7 that was just released today! There are also a few new views that take advantage of the new DB2 9.7 monitoring improvements. There's a new RSS reader built into the TE that will keep you up to date as we come up with new features as well.

One of the most exciting new features in the TE is the new dynamic column type. Once you define this column, it will automatically refresh and show you how much the value has changed since the last update. You can check this out by looking at the buffer pool effectiveness view, by going into the Statistics menu, then buffer pools, then Effectiveness.

There's been a lot of work done to improve the look and feel of the Technology Explorer. The table display has been completely rewritten, now you can do things like resize your columns and add custom right click menus. This improvement is thanks to the javascript processing improvements in Firefox 3 and Chrome.

Download the new version and give it a test run. Let us know what you think in the forums.
