Although there haven't been a new release in quite some time I thought I'd
write to let you know I haven't been lazy. The 1.1.5 release is looking really
good, and I'm only waiting for the transfer of the copyright to be completed
to release it. I'm pretty confident it will be the last release candidate
before a 1.2.0 release.
I've also got going on the 1.3.0 release which will probably be released
at around the same time as 1.2.0, alpha though as usual. New features are
in no particular order:
Well, thats about it. Unfortunately it doesn't look like 1.1.5 will happen
this week either, hopefully sometime next week.
- Session handling, this means you can save the current state of the
application, including all tools and all open connections and restore them
at any other time. You can also configure TOra to always remember the state
you left it in when you closed it and restore it when you start it up again.
- Improved worksheet tuning where you can save the statistics from a
query and compare them against each other.
- Finally the tuning should now be more DBA friendly by asking if you
are sure you want to enable it, also enabling individual tabs.
- A new tab in the tuning to investigate system events more thoroughly,
this should hopefully satisfy Frits who have been asking for this feature.
If you are using TOra on a unix platform feel free to grab the latest head
CVS and give it a spin.
- Also a friend of mine Stefan Rindeskär is working on a PostgreSQL plugin
which many people have asked for which I personally don't have much use for
(Oracle and MySQL are enough for a laptop, I don't need a third DB:). Hopefully
this will be ready for some initial testing soon.
- I've also started working on the migrate functionality of toExtract
which is what I'm waiting for to start doing some really nifty object editing
in the database browser. Don't know if it will be done for 1.3.0, but it
will definately be in before 1.4.
