Release Notes: The performance of database analysis during forward engineer script generation has been greatly improved. New table and foreign key glyph highlighting make locating and distinguishing selected glyphs in diagrams easier. Users now have the option to execute forward engineer scripts within a transaction. There have been other improvements in memory consumption, GUI performance, and HTML database documentation.
Release Notes: Users can now set the diagram font size directly. In previous versions, the font size was fixed and users had to use the zoom feature to achieve a desired font size. This indirect method of controlling font size is no longer necessary. The automatic diagram layout algorithm has been significantly improved. Another major enhancement is that when a user selects a table or foreign key tree node, the diagram will automatically scroll to bring that item into view.
Release Notes: Support was added for several more MySQL data types. Table Data Viewer's insert and update dialogs can now handle tables with large numbers of columns. Many usability enhancements were made to the graphical user interface.
Release Notes: There were two major enhancments in this release. The first was to make the XML used to store design files more efficient. This makes the loading and saving of large design files faster. The second major enhancement was the implementation of a history log to track the rename of tables and columns. This history is used to generate rename DDL in forward engineer scripts. In addition, several usability enhancements were added to the graphical user interface.
Release Notes: Foreign keys now support more cardinalities. Support has been added for MySQL ENUM and unsigned datatypes. Table options can now be specified and are then appended to CREATE TABLE forward engineer scripts. The generated HTML database documentation has been improved.
Release Notes: This release focused on improving existing functionality. Improvements were made to the forward engineering script generation. This included changing some of the script code generated and improving performance. Many enhancements have been made to the graphical user interface, diagram manipulation, and documentation generation to make them faster and easier to use.
Release Notes: Now HTML documentation for a database can be generated, making it easy to communicate database designs. A new table linking strategy to connect tables from the primary key column to the foreign key column is available. This strategy makes it easier to see which columns are involved in a foreign key relationship when viewing a diagram. Another diagram enhancement is the ability to change the color of foreign key glyphs.
Release Notes: New features include support for procedures and sequences. Support for ALTER TABLE commands in forward engineering scripts has been improved. Users can now use Preferences to specify their own naming conventions for database objects. Diagrams now show which columns are indexed, and row high lighting makes it easier to see which columns are used in either primary or foreign keys. Several key improvements were made to forward engineering script generation for all supported databases.
Release Notes: This release fully supports comments for tables and columns, including forward and reverse engineering. Foreign key information can be viewed by selecting the foreign key glyph in a diagram. Enhancements have been made to improve the generated forward engineering scripts, particularly for PostgreSQL and MySQL databases.
Release Notes: An improved diagram rendering system that renders diagrams at a higher resolution. Diagrams display column names in a tabular format, making it easier to read column names. Forward engineering and reverse engineering scripts now automatically escape table and columns names that conflict with DBMS reserved names.
