Recent releases

  •  04 Nov 2008 18:22

    Release Notes: This is a major release focused on updating to Qt 4, improving stability and memory usage, performance, Oracle 11g and Instant Client support, improved PostgreSQL tooling, and the first Windows build using Qt Open Source.

    •  27 Jul 2003 18:55

      Release Notes: Better handling of not having Oracle libraries in the ld.so config. Improved session view, invalid objects, SGA trace, and debugger. Also features a brand new temporary objects viewer. New support for the Oracle timestamp datatype, and hopefully better support for Windows XP themes in the Windows version. There is a new, partial, unsupported Italian translation, and the usual number of minor improvements and bugfixes.

      •  16 Feb 2003 15:40

        Release Notes: This is a bugfix-only release. It fixes uninitialized memory access when accessing a resultset, handles expired passwords, fixes the oracle extractor block size problem, displays BLOB data as hex, fixes a worksheet problem when not using Oracle, and upgrades to a new version of OTL.

        •  10 Feb 2003 15:18

          Release Notes: The session tool was improved with long ops support, an invalid object tool, a connection dialog, the ability to extract straight to disc, template help, and a schema browser that shows extents. The object cache can now be saved to disk. The ability to execute all functionality in a worksheet was improved. A huge performance improvement was made in handling large results and editors. Passwords are no longer stored in cleartext in the registry or configfile, but are obfuscated (although they are not encrypted). Large assortments of bugfixes and minor improvements were also made.

          •  06 Jul 2002 18:00

            Release Notes: An improved SGA trace, large performance enhancements when displaying large results, new template help for SQL dictionary, an improved CSV format exporter, and a large number of minor and larger bugfixes, including the non-Oracle DB and filemenu problem of 1.3.6.

            tora development version
            If you have stability problems with the stable version, try
            the development version (1.3). It works much better on
            my system (offcourse that could be due to packaging/local
            problems, don't know)

            Also it seems getting tora to work for oracle is not as
            painful as it was before: i use the mandrake packages on
            debian (converted with alien) and oracle 10 instant client
            (free download from otn). Works fine..

            that reply from the author pretty much covers it.

            i can't use DBA studio because it is slooooow as hell... dumps everything i'm running onto the swap, and just hangs now or then... is that enough ?

            you might want to run Tora for the same reason ppl on
            NTworld run either SQLNavigator or Toad ( it is: productivity! ).
            i've been using Tora since 0.12, and it covered
            a long way i must say Tora currently can be compared to
            Toad about speed ( just looses on - some - features ).

            bottomline: Tora kicks the c**p out of DBAStudio at any day of the week... by any measurement you choose.

            you're welcome.

            Ok, as the author I'm biased about this product. But basically DBA Studio sucks big time. I don't actually know anybody who uses that professionally except consultants who work for Oracle. Also DBA studio has no real worksheet (Just a cheap frontend to SQLPlus), no PL/SQL debugger, no schema browser worth it's name and loads of other stuff (Schema extraction also comes to mind). And also it is Java bloatware so it's really slow and cumbersome to work with.
