SQLGrinder 2 Beta 4 now available

The fourth beta version of SQLGrinder 2, the completely-rewritten version of our database development tool was posted yesterday.

Please see the release notes page for the full list of changes.

One thing to note is that the new version has been "redesigned" to better fit what seems to be a "consistent" move by Apple: no window borders, and 3 pane views with a colored outline view on the left, like Mail and iTunes 5. Changes like this are one of the reasons I hold off as long as I can on completing documentation. Doing screen shots is bad enough. Having to do them multiple times as the UI changes is even worse.

Also, just a reminder that beta builds are full debug builds and aren't optimized for speed, size, etc. yet, and carry the usual "use at your own risk" warnings.

Finally, you can subscribe to the release notes page, which now has an RSS feed, to stay up-to-date on what's changed and what known issues there might be.
