Meet the new completely redesigned version of dbForge Studio for MySQL, v 5.0.

In the new version we made a lot of improvements and added a whole pack of new features in almost all dbForge Studio's tools. And the most remarkable thing about this release is that nearly all novelties were suggested by our users. So we hope they will enjoy working with the new version and feel that they have contributed a lot to make it as it is.

With the help of our users we could work on the product on the new level, and as a result of such successful tight cooperation its standard of quality grew. This new standard includes taking into account actual needs of people using our product and implementing their exact requirements except studying the market in general and implementing features that are theoretically demanded.

When you open the application to get acquainted with the new version, you will be surely stunned and pleasantly surprised by its new look. When you start using it, we hope you will be thrilled by the inner improvements and make the best use of them.

New Features

  • Dependencies List

    First of all, test the usability of Dependencies List - a unique feature that will allow you to see the object's references and dependants. No more need to spend precious minutes on looking all this up!

  • Full support for MySQL server 5.5

  • Master-Detail Browser

    You are welcome to explore and analyze master-detail data in a browser with rich settings, and save your data and diagrams for future use.

  • Enhanced Data Editor

    Foreign key lookup editor was added. Resources of client machines will be spared with server-side sorting and filtering. Data Editor now informs about its state. Capabilities to edit tables in join statements, to number records, copy data with header, and build graphical representation of data with a wizard are now available.

  • Improved Security Manager

    Maintaining server security is one of the most responsible tasks. We did our best to make it easier by redesigning Security Manager. Now you can edit several users at once, group them by hosts, and grant definite sets of privileges with the help of virtual roles.

  • Data Export and Import improvements

    Export data from several tables at once and save your time by exporting and importing data through the command line.

  • Object Viewer - a simple way to view object's details

    Object Viewer (formerly known as Summary Window) was totally redesigned to provide an easier way for analyzing objects and their structure.
