Post SQL Assistant 9.0 is now available! Reply with quote
Build 9.0.162 is now available for download.

We are excited to announce v9.0 RTM version availability. That's correct, we mean version 9, not 8. This is one of the most significant releases in the entire SQL Assistant history. There are so many big changes that we've decided to skip number 8.

Here is a list of major new features:
1. Support for 32-bit and 64-bit development environments, 64-bit target editors, 32-bit and 64-bit database drivers and clients. All of that is packaged together and delivered by a single installation program.
2. Full support of Unicode in code, data, and files.
3. Support for 3 new data warehouse database systems: Teradata, IBM Netezza, and Pivotal Greenplum.
4. Database Modeling
5. Graphical Data Access and Code Dependencies, as well as Data Flows.
6. New interactive SQL Reference systems for SQL Server 2014 and 2016, SQL Azure database, Teradata 14 and 15, Oracle 12c, Netezza 7, Access 2007 and 2010, PostgreSQL 9.5, and Redshift.
7. Significant SQL Intellisense improvements including enhanced support for analytical and window functions.
8. Native PostgreSQL connectivity (libPQ).
9. Enhanced SQL code execution mode using ADO.NET and native connections supporting asynchronous printing of message sent from stored procedures and internal database commands while they run.
9. Graphical data editing plus Excel style auto-stats on multiple cell selection in result sets.
10. Many database type specific enhancements, including but not limited to support of PosgreSQL materialized views, DB2 procedures with overloaded parameters, support for new data types, including intervals, execution of anonymous PL/pgSQL blocks in PosgreSQL, processing of COPY command in PostgreSQL scripts, and so on...
11. Virtual filters in Code Structure View (filter code by schema object references), this is a life saver for anyone working with complex procedures and deployment scripts.
12. Enhancements in Task and Reminders.
13. Enhancements in Code automation Snippets with new options and extensions in macro variables.
14. Enhanced management of SQL Assistant options with across the board filters by database type.
15. Multi-database Update Statistics and table space management functions.
16. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of SQL Assistant Professional SQL Editor.
17. Compatibility changes for supporting latest releases of SQL Server Management Studio 2016, pgAdmin and Toad.
18. Compatibility changes for supporting Windows 10.
19. Enhancements in the Data Transfer tools - many new data type mappings added for enhanced cross-platform support.
20. Lots of other minor changes and enhancements.

Post [SA 9.0.176 Pro] - DB Connections Reply with quote
After upgrading to SA 9.0.176 a new setting appeared for connections in SqlAssist.sas. It's called appPlatform and its value is set to 0.

There's also another setting for targets called hotRefreshCache set to 00. Is that the hotkey for refreshing cache? Why is it set to 00? Does 00 mean that it is left at default?

Could you tell us what those are that for and what their values mean?

Can't copy/paste stuff out of it.

I can promise that will be fixed at some point, but I cannot say exactly when. It's in the queue. We are still working on some updates in the User's Guide.
