Highlights

Better table editing

  • SQLite 3.25.0 added support for renaming columns with the ALTER TABLE command (previously you had to create a new table with the renamed column, copy all data over, delete the old table, then rename the new table - even leaving out some details of the process here...). This does not only make renaming columns a lot faster, it makes it safer too because the new process is less prone to errors and also makes sure to update all references to the renamed column in your indices and triggers. Starting with this release DB4S makes as much use of this new feature as possible. This gives you the full ALTER TABLE support we offer but additionally, all the benefits just mentioned.

  • Often you do not edit just one bit of your table schema. For example, when renaming a column you might want to edit its data type or default value too. Before each of these modifications would be carried out immediately which, for large tables, makes editing them very slow and tiresome. With this release DB4S keeps track of all your modifications, only applying them in one single process when clicking the OK button. This should make editing the schema of large tables a lot faster.

  • We have also added a new constraint editor. This allows you to add and edit constraints for multiple columns but it is also useful for setting constraint names or just getting an overview of all constraints in the table.

Conditional formatting

  • We have added a new feature for configuring conditional formats in the Browse Data tab. With this, you can set colours, font, font size, text alignment, and more depending on the values of the cell. It works very similarly to what you might know from your spreadsheet application.

  • Conditional formats are set per column and multiple formats can be configured for each column. Conditional formats can select for anything that can be filtered for, e.g. equals, does not equal, less than, more than, LIKE, etc.

  • To set a conditional format you can right-click a cell or right-click a filter bar, then click 'Edit Conditional Formats...' to open the dialog. If you are currently filtering the view, you can also right-click the filter bar and click 'Use for Conditional Format' to quickly add a conditional format for the current filter condition.

  • Your configured conditional formats are saved to your project files as well.
    condformat

  • Additionally there is a new format toolbar which allows you to set formats arbitrarily without giving any condition. This allows you to format the table contents just like a table in your favourite spreadsheet application, e.g. for presentations or printing.

Better threading and cancelling support for long-running queries

  • SQL queries are now running in a separate thread. This means the UI can respond while the query is running. For long-running queries, this makes a huge difference because it allows you to cancel the query anytime.
    cancel_query

  • SQLite does not support accessing the database from multiple threads simultaneously for all database configurations. Because we want to make sure that it is impossible to corrupt a database file, DB4S does not allow two queries or one query and another long-running process to run simultaneously. In the status bar, you are now notified of any long-running processes and you can cancel them too. But no worries: Whenever you try to start a second query, a message box will inform you and let you decide whether to cancel or wait for the other process to finish.
    statusbar

Multi-column sorting

  • It is now possible to sort by multiple columns in the Browse Data tab. You can configure any number of sort keys. Their order will appear in the column headers.

  • Simply clicking a column header resets any old sort orders and sorts by just the clicked column. To add another sort key hold the Ctrl / cmd key while clicking the column header. Holding the Ctrl / cmd key and clicking a column header which is already in the list of columns for sorting changes the sort order of that column.

  • All the columns used for sorting are stored in your project files.
    sort_order

New SQL parser with Unicode support and better coverage in general

  • DB4S comes with a SQL parser which is used to analyse the tables schemas. The parser is not perfect and when failing to parse a certain table or index schema, you will not be able to use all features of DB4S on that table or index. Especially editing the schema but also to some extent modifying the contents of the table will not be possible. So even though it is not directly visible, the parser is a very important part of the application.

  • This release comes with a new parser. This allows us to fix a lot of problems, for example with complex CHECK constraints, which are now working as expected. The new parser is not only more robust, but it also extracts more information out of the SQL statements which makes editing these tables a smoother experience.

  • Finally, the new parser can handle Unicode characters in table and column names just like SQLite does. So if your table schema contains these characters the table will now display correctly.
    utf

Find dialogs everywhere

  • We have added a find toolbar and a find and replace dialog to the Execute SQL editors. This means you can quickly jump to your search terms in the Execute SQL editor using the toolbar. But you can also open the more powerful dialog for more search options or replacing text. There are new toolbar icons at the top with new keyboard shortcuts.

  • We have also added the find and replace dialog to all other editors. This includes the Edit Cell and the SQL log docks because these might show a lot of text which is hard to navigate without a search option.
    find

  • Additionally, we have added a new find and a new find and replace toolbar to the Browse Data tab. This allows you to look for values or patterns in the currently browsed table without applying a filter. This is especially useful when you have already specified a filter and do not want to change that. The new replace toolbar allows you to replace values without having to switch the tab or write a SQL statement.

  • Finally there is a new field 'Filter in all columns'. Type any number of words here to limit the view to only those rows which contain all these words, no matter in which column. This is super useful when looking for a certain value in a table without knowing in which column it could be.
    find_in_table

UI improvements everywhere

  • This release includes a whole bunch of UI improvements throughout the application, too many to list them all here. Most notably maybe is the improved handling of project files. But there are also new keyboard shortcuts, cleaner window layouts, and many more details.

  • There are also more ways in which you can change the window layout and the UI is more responsive to your needs.

Proxy support

  • We have added proxy support to our network code. So it is finally possible to use DB4S through a proxy, for example, your company proxy. This also changes the defaults to use the system proxy configuration instead of not using any proxy at all.

  • The proxy settings affect all network code. This includes the automatic update check on Windows and macOS but also the dbhub.io integration. If you have not heard of it before, dbhub.io is a cloud service which allows you to work on SQLite databases collaboratively. It is developed by the same developers as DB4S. You can check it out for free. 😄

  • To change the proxy settings, open the Preferences dialog, go to the Remote tab, and click on the Configure button in the proxy section.

Better performance on slow systems

  • There are some major speed improvements in this release. The improved speed when editing a table schema has already been mentioned. The new SQL parser is also vastly faster which can make opening and browsing databases with lots of tables noticeably faster. The SQL import feature is faster too.

  • But other than that we have made a ton of small adjustments, each improving the performance a tiny bit. These are significant when combined, especially on older systems. This should make your overall experience a lot smoother.

Support for pre-3.11 project file format

In v3.11, the project file format was changed to support multiple sort columns (#1593), the database read-only state and the saving of configured conditional formats, while the handling of project files itself was improved too. While v.3.11 could read project files from previous versions, all saving of project files was done using the new project file format.

v3.12 will be the last version to support the pre-3.11 project file format - v3.13 won't be able to read the older format.

  • #1968 - Drop close buttons on every Execute SQL tab(x).
  • #2153 - Show a useful icon in SQL tabs
  • #2174 - Open SQL tabs for modifying views and triggers
  • #2180 - Crash when -t option specifies missing table
  • #2184 - Fix logo issues
  • #2193 - Update German translation
  • #2195 - Install the AppStream file to the canonical location
  • #2207 - Open a set of SQL-Files
  • #2224 - Consistent naming of DB Browser for SQLite

  • #2270 - Application icon cleanup
  • #2275 - Update to Windows Icon Generation script

There are a few text strings that still need an updated translation. We'll get those done over the next few days, and as long as no serious bugs turn up we'll make the final release next weekend or so. 😄

Support for pre-3.11 project file format

In v3.11, the project file format was changed to support multiple sort columns (#1593), the database read-only state and the saving of configured conditional formats, while the handling of project files itself was improved too. While v.3.11 could read project files from previous versions, all saving of project files was done using the new project file format.
v3.12 will be the last version to support the pre-3.11 project file format - v3.13 won't be able to read the older format.

@MKleusberg MKleusberg released this Apr 15, 2020 · 35 commits to v3.12.x since this release

Highlights

Better table editing

  • SQLite 3.25.0 added support for renaming columns with the ALTER TABLE command (previously you had to create a new table with the renamed column, copy all data over, delete the old table, then rename the new table - even leaving out some details of the process here...). This does not only make renaming columns a lot faster, it makes it safer too because the new process is less prone to errors and also makes sure to update all references to the renamed column in your indices and triggers. Starting with this release DB4S makes as much use of this new feature as possible. This gives you the full ALTER TABLE support we offer but additionally, all the benefits just mentioned.

  • Often you do not edit just one bit of your table schema. For example, when renaming a column you might want to edit its data type or default value too. Before each of these modifications would be carried out immediately which, for large tables, makes editing them very slow and tiresome. With this release DB4S keeps track of all your modifications, only applying them in one single process when clicking the OK button. This should make editing the schema of large tables a lot faster.

  • We have also added a new constraint editor. This allows you to add and edit constraints for multiple columns but it is also useful for setting constraint names or just getting an overview of all constraints in the table.
    constraint_editor

Conditional formatting

  • We have added a new feature for configuring conditional formats in the Browse Data tab. With this, you can set colours, font, font size, text alignment, and more depending on the values of the cell. It works very similarly to what you might know from your spreadsheet application.

  • Conditional formats are set per column and multiple formats can be configured for each column. Conditional formats can select for anything that can be filtered for, e.g. equals, does not equal, less than, more than, LIKE, etc.

  • To set a conditional format you can right-click a cell or right-click a filter bar, then click 'Edit Conditional Formats...' to open the dialog. If you are currently filtering the view, you can also right-click the filter bar and click 'Use for Conditional Format' to quickly add a conditional format for the current filter condition.

  • Your configured conditional formats are saved to your project files as well.
    condformat

  • Additionally there is a new format toolbar which allows you to set formats arbitrarily without giving any condition. This allows you to format the table contents just like a table in your favourite spreadsheet application, e.g. for presentations or printing.

Better threading and cancelling support for long-running queries

  • SQL queries are now running in a separate thread. This means the UI can respond while the query is running. For long-running queries, this makes a huge difference because it allows you to cancel the query anytime.
    cancel_query

  • SQLite does not support accessing the database from multiple threads simultaneously for all database configurations. Because we want to make sure that it is impossible to corrupt a database file, DB4S does not allow two queries or one query and another long-running process to run simultaneously. In the status bar, you are now notified of any long-running processes and you can cancel them too. But no worries: Whenever you try to start a second query, a message box will inform you and let you decide whether to cancel or wait for the other process to finish.
    statusbar

Multi-column sorting

  • It is now possible to sort by multiple columns in the Browse Data tab. You can configure any number of sort keys. Their order will appear in the column headers.

  • Simply clicking a column header resets any old sort orders and sorts by just the clicked column. To add another sort key hold the Ctrl / cmd key while clicking the column header. Holding the Ctrl / cmd key and clicking a column header which is already in the list of columns for sorting changes the sort order of that column.

  • All the columns used for sorting are stored in your project files.
    sort_order

New SQL parser with Unicode support and better coverage in general

  • DB4S comes with a SQL parser which is used to analyse the tables schemas. The parser is not perfect and when failing to parse a certain table or index schema, you will not be able to use all features of DB4S on that table or index. Especially editing the schema but also to some extent modifying the contents of the table will not be possible. So even though it is not directly visible, the parser is a very important part of the application.

  • This release comes with a new parser. This allows us to fix a lot of problems, for example with complex CHECK constraints, which are now working as expected. The new parser is not only more robust, but it also extracts more information out of the SQL statements which makes editing these tables a smoother experience.

  • Finally, the new parser can handle Unicode characters in table and column names just like SQLite does. So if your table schema contains these characters the table will now display correctly.

Find dialogs everywhere

  • We have added a find toolbar and a find and replace dialog to the Execute SQL editors. This means you can quickly jump to your search terms in the Execute SQL editor using the toolbar. But you can also open the more powerful dialog for more search options or replacing text. There are new toolbar icons at the top with new keyboard shortcuts.

  • We have also added the find and replace dialog to all other editors. This includes the Edit Cell and the SQL log docks because these might show a lot of text which is hard to navigate without a search option.
    find

  • Additionally, we have added a new find and a new find and replace toolbar to the Browse Data tab. This allows you to look for values or patterns in the currently browsed table without applying a filter. This is especially useful when you have already specified a filter and do not want to change that. The new replace toolbar allows you to replace values without having to switch the tab or write a SQL statement.

  • Finally there is a new field 'Filter in all columns'. Type any number of words here to limit the view to only those rows which contain all these words, no matter in which column. This is super useful when looking for a certain value in a table without knowing in which column it could be.

UI improvements everywhere

  • This release includes a whole bunch of UI improvements throughout the application, too many to list them all here. Most notably maybe is the improved handling of project files. But there are also new keyboard shortcuts, cleaner window layouts, and many more details.

  • There are also more ways in which you can change the window layout and the UI is more responsive to your needs.

Proxy support

  • We have added proxy support to our network code. So it is finally possible to use DB4S through a proxy, for example, your company proxy. This also changes the defaults to use the system proxy configuration instead of not using any proxy at all.

  • The proxy settings affect all network code. This includes the automatic update check on Windows and macOS but also the dbhub.io integration. If you have not heard of it before, dbhub.io is a cloud service which allows you to work on SQLite databases collaboratively. It is developed by the same developers as DB4S. You can check it out for free. 😄

  • To change the proxy settings, open the Preferences dialog, go to the Remote tab, and click on the Configure button in the proxy section.

Better performance on slow systems

  • There are some major speed improvements in this release. The improved speed when editing a table schema has already been mentioned. The new SQL parser is also vastly faster which can make opening and browsing databases with lots of tables noticeably faster. The SQL import feature is faster too.

  • But other than that we have made a ton of small adjustments, each improving the performance a tiny bit. These are significant when combined, especially on older systems. This should make your overall experience a lot smoother.

Support for pre-3.11 project file format

In v3.11, the project file format was changed to support multiple sort columns (#1593), the database read-only state and the saving of configured conditional formats, while the handling of project files itself was improved too. While v.3.11 could read project files from previous versions, all saving of project files was done using the new project file format.
v3.12 will be the last version to support the pre-3.11 project file format - v3.13 won't be able to read the older format.

The rebuilt macOS installer (v2) was generated from this tag.

@justinclift justinclift released this Feb 18, 2019 · 22 commits to v3.11.x since this release

Note that this is effectively 3.11.0 from last week, with a critical bug fix on top + some other additional fixes.

Highlights

  • DBHub.io improvements
  • CSV import: speed, memory usage, usability, type detection and new default rules
  • Attach databases
  • Menu options for filtering
  • JSON and XML editors
  • Improvements to the plot UI
  • Better copy & paste support
  • Dark theme support on Linux
    • Dark mode support for windows and macOS isn't working yet. 😦
  • Multi-threaded loading of data
  • Default quotes changed to double quotes
  • Add Record dialog
  • Printing support
  • The math extensions for SQLite are included in the windows and macOS installers

Important Notes

  • This release includes SQLCipher 4.0.1, providing even stronger encryption than the previous release.
    • To open a database encrypted with a previous release, make sure to choose the "SQLCipher 3 defaults" in the dialog which asks for the encryption passphrase.
  • Our project file format has changed, to make it easier to modify with external tools.
    • Older format files are loaded fine, but all saving of project files is done using the new project file format.

Notes on the windows installers

We've moved to providing MSI based installers, instead of the previous .exe ones. These new installers include both SQLite and SQLCipher (for optional encryption):

DB.Browser.for.SQLite-3.11.1-win32.msi
DB.Browser.for.SQLite-3.11.1-win64.msi

These MSI based installers will automatically detect the previous release of DB4S (3.10.1) and remove it before upgrading. If you're using one of the 3.11.0 alpha/betas, or an older version of DB4S than 3.10.1, you'll need to manually remove it first before the upgrade.

Additionally, there's now a .zip version of each. That's useful for people needing to run DB Browser for SQLite without installing it first.

DB.Browser.for.SQLite-3.11.1-win32.zip
DB.Browser.for.SQLite-3.11.1-win64.zip

If you're not sure which one to get, try the .msi version first. 😄

Note on the macOS installer

The macOS installation now includes the SQLite math extensions (math.dylib), located in the Contents/Extensions/ folder inside DB Browser for SQLite.app.

  • To use it, you'll need to either manually load it (ToolsLoad Extension), or tell DB4S to automatically load it every time (PreferencesExtensions).
  • macOS doesn't easily allow going inside .app folders in file selection dialogs. To navigate to the correct folder you'll probably need to press Shift (⇧)+Command (⌘)+g when the file selection dialog is open, then give it the path of /Applications/DB Browser for SQLite.app/Contents/Extensions.

Assets 7

@MKleusberg MKleusberg released this Feb 7, 2019 · 37 commits to v3.11.x since this release

Highlights

  • DBHub.io improvements
  • CSV import: speed, memory usage, usability, type detection and new default rules
  • Attach databases
  • Menu options for filtering
  • JSON and XML editors
  • Improvements to the plot UI
  • Better copy & paste support
  • Dark theme support on Linux
    • Dark mode support for windows and macOS isn't working yet. 😦
  • Multi-threaded loading of data
  • Default quotes changed to double quotes
  • Add Record dialog
  • Printing support
  • The math extensions for SQLite are included in the windows and macOS installers

Important Notes

  • This release includes SQLCipher 4.0.1, providing even stronger encryption than the previous release.
    • To open a database encrypted with a previous release, make sure to choose the "SQLCipher 3 defaults" in the dialog which asks for the encryption passphrase.
  • Our project file format has changed, to make it easier to modify with external tools.
    • Older format files are loaded fine, but all saving of project files is done using the new project file format.

Notes on the windows installers

We've moved to providing MSI based installers, instead of the previous .exe ones. These new installers include both SQLite and SQLCipher (for optional encryption):

DB.Browser.for.SQLite-3.11.0-win32.msi
DB.Browser.for.SQLite-3.11.0-win64.msi

These MSI based installers will automatically detect the previous release of DB4S (3.10.1) and remove it before upgrading. If you're using one of the 3.11.0 alphas/beta, or an older version of DB4S than 3.10.1, you'll need to manually remove it first before the upgrade.

Additionally, there's now a .zip version of each. That's useful for people needing to run DB Browser for SQLite without installing it first.

DB.Browser.for.SQLite-3.11.0-win32.zip
DB.Browser.for.SQLite-3.11.0-win64.zip

If you're not sure which one to get, try the .msi version first. 😄

Note on the macOS installer

The macOS installation now includes the SQLite math extensions (math.dylib), located in the Contents/Extensions/ folder inside DB Browser for SQLite.app.

  • To use it, you'll need to either manually load it (ToolsLoad Extension), or tell DB4S to automatically load it every time (PreferencesExtensions).
  • macOS doesn't easily allow going inside .app folders in file selection dialogs. To navigate to the correct folder you'll probably need to press Shift (⇧)+Command (⌘)+g when the file selection dialog is open, then give it the path of /Applications/DB Browser for SQLite.app/Contents/Extensions.

Pre-release

@justinclift justinclift released this Dec 13, 2018 · 57 commits to v3.11.x since this release

This 3.11.0-beta3 release only has minor improvements over yesterdays 3.11.0-beta2.

  • The Windows installer dialogs have been cleaned up and reorganised.
  • The Windows installer now detects and uninstalls the prior release (3.10.1) automatically.
  • The macOS installation now includes the SQLite math extensions (math.dylib) too (was already added for Windows in a prior beta).
    • It's located in the Contents/Extensions/ folder inside DB Browser for SQLite.app.
    • To use it, you'll need to either manually load it (ToolsLoad Extension), or tell DB4S to automatically load it every time (PreferencesExtensions).
    • macOS doesn't easily allow going inside .app folders in file selection dialogs. To navigate to the correct folder you'll probably need to press Shift (⇧)+Command (⌘)+g when the file selection dialog is open, then give it the path of /Applications/DB Browser for SQLite.app/Contents/Extensions.
    • @SilvioGrosso has kindly created a video showing how to load the math extensions on windows

Notes on the windows installers

We've moved to providing MSI based installers, instead of the previous .exe ones. These new installers include both SQLite and SQLCipher (for optional encryption):

  • DB.Browser.for.SQLite-3.11.0-beta3-win32.msi
  • DB.Browser.for.SQLite-3.11.0-beta3-win64.msi

Additionally, there's now a .zip version of each. That's useful for people needing to run DB Browser for SQLite without installing it first.

  • DB.Browser.for.SQLite-3.11.0-beta3-win32.zip
  • DB.Browser.for.SQLite-3.11.0-beta3-win64.zip

If you're not sure which one to get, try the .msi version first. :)
