DbVisualizer 9.1 - What's New

[ Change Log | What's New | Press Release ]

This is a point release, so don't expect a ton of changes. We're smoothing out the edges and adding a few useful features.

We have worked hard on our new online documentation that is now structured around how you work, not how the product is built. 9.1 will automatically check for new releases that you are eligible to download under your contract, prompt you when your license is due for renewal and even upgrade to newer versions without needing to leave DbVisualizer.

Keep reading for some highlights in DbVisualizer 9.1!

Locate SQL script errors easier

Users have requested the ability to easily detect errors in SQL scripts for quite some time. The feature is now available for Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Informix, JavaDB/Derby and Mimer SQL.

Mac OS X and Java 7

DbVisualizer now supports Java 7 on Mac OS X. Java 7 is automatically installed if not already available.

Native explain support for PostgreSQL

The explain plan support for PostgreSQL introduced in 9.0 is extended with the option to present native explain plan information.

Auto detection of database type

The Database Type setting in the connection details is really important to set to match the database being accesessed. In 9.1, this is done automatically to eliminate a source of confusion.

Easier extensibility of database support

With DbVisualizer 9.1 it is easier to add custom database functionality for a supported database.

Redesigned Users Guide

The completely rewritten users guide now focuses on what you want to do rather than explaining feature by feature. The online search functionality and an index in the PDF version makes it easy to locate sections of interest.

Version upgrade and product support at hand

Some significant news in 9.1 is that you should not need to leave DbVisualizer to install new versions, report problems or request evaluation of the Pro edition.

DbVisualizer support team is now just a click away

Whenever you have a question, enhancement request or issue to report, just open the new integrated Contact Support feature in the Help menu.

If an unexpected error occurs, the new Report Problem option is a real time saver as you may report the problem instantly without needing to open a web browser and locate the correct web page for issue reporting.

New version notifications

The updated check for update feature automatically informs you about new versions that are available based on your current usage.

Integrated auto updating

DbVisualizer automatically notifies you when a new version is available, if it is a free upgrade or if renewal is required. The auto-updater will even install a free upgrade from within DbVisualizer itself. No more visiting the dbvis.com web site, download and manual install.
