This was intended to be a small point release after the release of 4.0. I guess things got a little out of hand :-).
Headline features this month are thanks to the small group of part time contractors helping me build Beekeeper Studio on nights and weekends - @not-night-but, @azmy60, and @wmontgomery
Spreadsheet style table interactions!
You can do a bunch of stuff with tables that ‘just makes sense’ now including:
- Selecting rows / columns
- Selecting a range of cells
- Copying data from the selected cells/columns/rows
- Pasting data into a table across multiple cells
- Navigating with the keyboard
It’s a huge improvement. @azmy60++ for all the work on this feature. We’ve also contributed this feature back to Tabulator.
Modal editor for large values
Ever tried to edit JSON or HTML in a Beekeeper Studio table view? It’s horrible. Or rather it WAS horrible. It’s now a lot nicer.
Right click a cell and select
edit in modal to edit the value in a larger editor.
If you’re editing JSON, Beekeeper Studio will automatically prettify it for you to make editing easier (and minify it for you when you save, if you so choose).
Wayland fractional scaling support
I’m a Linux user. Gnome now uses Wayland, so I use Wayland. Unfortunately my screen requires me to run at 150% fractional scaling. Up until now there was no real way to make Beekeeper Studio look right in this environment – the app would be blurry and hard to read.
This release includes proper support for Wayland, but it’s not enabled by default (due to remaining problems with NVIDIA), rather Wayland has to be enabled by setting a couple of flags in a configuration file.
- Beekeeper Studio docs moved into the repo under [docs]
- Launch multiple tabs from the quicksearch menu
- Arrays and complex objects edit & save correctly
- Fixed some issues with not quoting table aliases in some situations
- Restored SQL Server 2005 compatibility (Yes we support this for longer than MSFT)
- Connection edit forms are colored according to the connection color
- Fixed Nullifying a value and saving
- Fixed columns not populating in the ‘relations’ tab for uncached tables
- Improved SQL query identification in the editor
We improve other open source projects
Many of the improvements we have made in Beekeeper Studio have also been contributed to the upstream projects that we use. We think this is the right way to make software. If you do too, please support us by purchasing a copy of the full version of Beekeeper Studio.
If you can’t afford the full version, no worries, that’s why we make a free and open source community edition.
