Build #2.5.12 is now available.

This build fixes several anomalies found when running SQL Assistant on Windows Vista including issues with code snippets, "ImageList" errors, registered versions not working in MS Query Analyzer and in Notepad and several other annoyances.

If you are not using Vista you can skip this release, otherwise we highly recommend upgrading to 2.5.12 as soon as possible.

Build #2.5.14 is now available.

The main change in this build is conversion of the configuration file format from CFG to SAS. The main reason for that change is Vista poorly designed mechanism to virtualize access to all configuration files. Basically Vista is copying configuration file data to the registry without being asked for that and later substituting normal reads from config files with reads from the registry, which in turn makes Vista frequently return bad or outdated data breaking normal SQL Assistant workflow and created unneeded anomalies.

Other issues resolved in this build:
1. Invalid procedure parameters displayed in parameters popups when working with SQL Server and the user is not dbo but whose default schema is set to dbo.
2. Duplicate object names appearing in object name popups when using the forced auto-completion feature.
3. "Change All" function incorrect behavior in the code spell checker.
4. SQL Assistant stops displaying popups after working with large T-SQL files for a long time.

Build #2.5.20 released on August 26.

Builds 2.5.15, 2.5.17, 2.5.18, 2.5.19 contained mostly internal changes and were never released. Build 2.5.16 contained both bug fixes and internal changes, including changes related to dealing with Vista backward incompatible changes in registry and configuration file virtualization. Here is a cumulative list of major changes and fixes in all builds from 2.5.15 to 2.5.20:

1. Native add-in component added for SQL Server Management Studio and Management Studio Express. If the add-in is registered with the target, it is not necessary anymore to run SQL Assistant as an icon in the system tray and have it watch for new processes, because the Management Studio will load it automatically on startup.
2. Native add-in component added for Visual Studio and Management Studio Express, including full menu integration. If the add-in is registered with the target, it is not necessary anymore to run SQL Assistant as an icon in the system tray and have it watch for new processes, because the Visual Studio will load it automatically on startup.
3. Fixed issue with targets crashing after SQL Assistant Options modified several times while some targets are open.
4. For SQL Server targets, when pasting user-function name, schema name is pasted automatically as part of the name
5. Fixed behavior of assistance for TRUNCATE TABLE
6. For MySQL targets added BEGIN keyword
7. Syntax check now displays a confirmation message if no errors found during the check
8. Fixed function parameter prompts for nested functions
9. Fixed SQL Assistant crashing if spell check is invoked on a system without MS Word installed.
10. Implemented enhanced version of the automatic indent feature. Starting with build 2.5.20 auto-indent works for both opening elements of a SQL construct and closing elsements,, for example, pressing Enter key after BEGIN will cause the next line to start with additional indent, pressing Enter key after END will cause END to have the same indent as the matching BEGIN. Similar rules are created for IF..ELSE…END IF, loops, and other logical SQL statements.
