This is a major release focused on updating to Qt 4, improving stability and memory usage, performance, Oracle 11g and Instant Client support, improved PostgreSQL tooling, and the first Windows build using Qt Open Source.
Better handling of not having Oracle libraries in the ld.so config. Improved session view, invalid objects, SGA trace, and debugger. Also features a brand new temporary objects viewer. New support for the Oracle timestamp datatype, and hopefully better support for Windows XP themes in the Windows version. There is a new, partial, unsupported Italian translation, and the usual number of minor improvements and bugfixes.
This is a bugfix-only release. It fixes uninitialized memory access when accessing a resultset, handles expired passwords, fixes the oracle extractor block size problem, displays BLOB data as hex, fixes a worksheet problem when not using Oracle, and upgrades to a new version of OTL.
The session tool was improved with long ops support, an invalid object tool, a connection dialog, the ability to extract straight to disc, template help, and a schema browser that shows extents. The object cache can now be saved to disk. The ability to execute all functionality in a worksheet was improved. A huge performance improvement was made in handling large results and editors. Passwords are no longer stored in cleartext in the registry or configfile, but are obfuscated (although they are not encrypted). Large assortments of bugfixes and minor improvements were also made.
An improved SGA trace, large performance enhancements when displaying large results, new template help for SQL dictionary, an improved CSV format exporter, and a large number of minor and larger bugfixes, including the non-Oracle DB and filemenu problem of 1.3.6.
