Black Falcon Software is proud to announce its release of SQL Server Source Control for Developers 2.1.1…
This release is a major upgrade to its current product, which was at version 1.0.3. The reason for the large skip in version numbers is that an interim 1.1.1 release had been planned but it was thought better to combine all of the modifications and new features into a single release.
This latest version has a brand new interface style, which will bring it more in line with current expectations by users.
A new usage statistics form has been added that allows users to view the used space in their defined repositories.
An new email form has also been added that will allow users to contact Black Falcon Software directly from within the application.
A new utility has also been added that allows users to clear dangling data when a database connection has been deleted. This dangling data was a result of the application not clearing all of the repositories with data associated with the deleted connection. Since this “bug” was internalized by the fact that without the deleted database connection information, the associated data could never be viewed, it resulted merely in the data using up space than being any type of issue. Running this utility once will rectify this issue without disrupting any data associated with existing, active data.
Many modifications have also been made to this product and are currently listed on the home-page of Black Falcon Software’s web-site.
If you are an employee, consultant, or freelancer who requires source control for your SQL Server database object scripts because your place of work does not have such a capacity or you just would like to have your own individualized form of such source control, which is similar in nature to the Mercurial private source control system, go to Black Falcon Software’s web-site at http://www.blackfalconsoftware.com and download a freely available 30-day trail version. Licensing is very affordable and allows for installation on 5 different machines.
A tremendous amount of effort has gone into this latest release so it is hoped that everyone who tries it will enjoy working with it.
Database access has been tested up through SQL Server 2014 and should be compatible with all previous versions with this popular database engine.
In addition, this release has also been successfully tested against Windows 10.
The next expected release (2.1.2) will have the capability to access the newly released SQL Server 2016 database engine.
