Release Notes

This is a substantial upgrade to the program containing important new features, many bug fixes and some visual improvements.

Developer Mode.
This upgrade relaxes some previous self-imposed restrictions that kept the app safe for browsing non-development databases. Now by explicitly setting a "Development database" flag on a connection a user can activate all the unsafe schema changing options and a smoother data-edit functionality on a carefully selected subset of connections. In developer mode it is possible to add or remove tables, columns and schemas. Data in tables is editable by default instead of requiring a keypress or menu function to activate editing.

Also worth noting in the upgrade
Issue 63: Extend the table report to be more like explorer
The table list has additional fields showing table creation and last update dates. Furthermore the number of rows in a table is now displayed when connected to databases with read-only permission.

Issue 43 Ad-hoc window move to the application main window
The adhoc query window has been moved into the application from being free-floating window. This improves the management of the display. The adhoc window can now be opened from a toolbar icon and possesses its own toolbar. The keyboard interface also has been improved. Right-click copying has been implemented for the result grid.

Issue 40 Add support for ORM use
There is now a facility for generating C# code for Entity Framework and LINQ2SQL from a table definition.

Issue 65 Documentation upgraded.
Before this upgrade the documentation was patchy and extremely out of date. This upgrade includes a new DbViewSharp User guide that covers general operation in depth, all toolbar and main menu options and nearly all of the context menu items. In preparing the guide a dozen or so minor problems or inconsistencies were logged and these are fixed in the upgrade. Access documentation from the Windows program menu.
