Wow, what a summer. It was ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ here in Texas, but that gave us time to cook some delicious new features for Beekeeper Studio ๐Ÿณ.

  1. TRUNCATE and DROP entities right from the Beekeeper Studio sidebar.
  2. Redshift IAM connections credentials are now supported
  3. Hide columns on the Table Data view, and Beekeeper will remember the layout between restarts.
  4. Beekeeper Studio will maintain the horizontal scroll position on a table when sorting a column
  5. Beekeeper Studio will remember column sizes on the table data view
  6. Export of JSONB data will export as an object, not an array
  7. Bit conversion errors when updating a MySQL row are no longer a problem
  8. Improved Oracle Database TNSADMIN support
  9. Copy and export data in the Markdown table format (!)
  10. Added Keep Alive for SSH connections
  11. Cloning a row will null the primary key
  12. You can now filter table data using IN

Plus a bunch of other little fixes and tweaks.

Legendary Contributors

A big thanks to everyone who contributed to this release. For the first time, most features were authored by someone else other than me (!).

Commercial Version - Out Now. Community Edition - Later

You might have noticed that the last release was almost 3 months ago. Thatโ€™s a long time.

It takes such a massive effort to put together and publish a release - testing, bug fixing, documentation, release notes, and closely watching for errors after release. The amount of work has made me procrastinate a little and put off doing a release.

Iโ€™m solving this by staggering the releases a little between the commercial and community editions of Beekeeper Studio.

Release plan going forwards:

  1. Release new features to the commercial edition
  2. One to two weeks later release to the community edition

This will help keep the workload manageable, and might also encourage some folks to use the commercial version (new features first!), but itโ€™s mostly about the workload if Iโ€™m honest.
