Build .49 is available immediately. Several things have been addressed there

1. Added support for Oracle 10g Express Edition which has no standard ORACLE_HOME settings
2. Added a number of new keywords for Oracle PL/SQL
3. Fixed issue with Toad hot-keys - "Address violation error..."
4. Semicolon added as a keyword separator so now if, for example, you type "end;" it automatically turns to "END;"

Build 0.52 is now available. 3 changes have been made:
1. Modified how column names are pasted into the script. If only one table is referenced in a query and not using alias then column names are pasted as is without fully qualified name (schema, table, column), if table alias is specified then selected column is pasted as alias.column_name
2. Improved parsing of comments; now supporting nested /* -- */ comments
2. Improved parsing of strings; now supporting multi-line strings like
SELECT 'line 1
Line 2
Line 3' FROM ….

Build 0.55 is now available. Here is what's new:

1. In SQL Reference we corrected syntax for DECLARE CURSOR for both T-SQL 92 and ANSI SQL syntaxes and made them exclusive; their elements cann ot be mixed anymore.

2. Corrected bug in SQL Reference for T-SQL – when clicking and pasting syntax elements spaces are now inserted between pasted keywords and existing text entered by user.

3. Fixed bug causing crashes in SQL Server editors when typing comma in the FROM clause or after JOIN keyword caused by very long table names with foreign keys referencing the first table in the query

4. Fixed text parsing bug causing SQL Assistance to crash when entering/modifying long multi-line comments.

5. New enhancement: subqueries in the FROM clause are now parsed and treated as regular tables, their result-set columns are used in the popup along with regular columns

For example:
Code:
SELECT a.* FROM sysobjects AS a, (SELECT max(id) AS max_id FROM sysobjects) AS b WHERE a.id = b.max_id


The popup appearing after the WHERE, JOIN ON and in other parts of the SELECT will show all columns from sysobjects with alias A as well as max_id from the subquery with alias B, so that both a.id and b.max_id can be pasted using the popup. This works for both SQL Server and Oracle editors.

6. New enhancement: editor/IDE window title now can be used as an additional filter parameter for the registered target. For example, using this parameter you can separate SQL Server Enterprise Manager from other MMC applications. Note: Window title supports optional percent sign as wildcard character for dynamic text. For example, in DB Tools the title of the Editor window is "SQL Editor and Debugger - Connected to [Server Name] As [User Name]" where text after the dash is dynamic. So that the title can be entered as "SQL Editor and Debugger %" without double-quotes.

Build 0.57 is now available. Here are the changes:

1. Added Cache Refresh option - use F5 key or right-click menu while popup is visible to force the refresh

2. Improved integration with editor's right-click menus. SQL Assistant submenu now appears in all registered editors using standard Windows methods for displaying the right-click context menu. In editors like SQL*Plus that don't support right-click menus, SQL Assistant displays its own menu. Note: since SSMS doesn't implement standard menus it doesn't work in SSMS. We are searching for a work around to make it also work in SSMS.

3. Added support for using alternative item selection key. It should be now easier for people who are used to run Microsoft tools featuring Intellisense and Tab as the selection key. Which selection key to use, can be configured in SQL Assistant options.

4. Updated product documentation

Build 1.0.70 is now available for download. Please note that build 1.0.69 has been skipped.

Here is what's new in the latest build:
1. Enhancement for SQL Server development environments: SQL Assistant now supports SQL Server running databases with different collations. If you had an issue using an earlier version of SQL Assistant, please make sure to delete SqlAssist.cfg file before installing the new version to the same directory

2. Enhancement for Oracle development environments and editors: Oracle public synonyms are now hidden by default, so they don't clog the list of objects in SQL Assistant popups with hundreds of rarely used names. If you need these synonyms in the list, disable the "hide Oracle synonyms" option in SQL Assistant options (on "SQL Assistance" tab click "Oracle" target, then on the right hand side of the screen click "Options" and then click "…" button to expand that section. Change "Hide public synonyms" option value from True to False).

Build 1.0.72 is now available for download. Please note that build 1.0.71 has been skipped.

The latest build addresses "Net init" error received when using SQL Assistant with some versions of SSMS.

Additional notes. We are actively working on the new major version 2 and planning to start public beta program in April. It is still not too late to submit new feature requests. If conditions permit we can get them implemented in version 2 or in the following maintenance releases.
