What's new in version 3.1?

1. Dutch localization was added to IB Manager distribution package. Now six
languages are supported: English, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and
Russian. This list will expand from version to version. You can change the
program language by the "Options -> Select program language..." menu item.
IB Manager also allows you to select your language preference at first

2. Visual Query Builder was updated to the latest version of EMS
QueryBuilder suite
A lot of small improvements and corrections. (*)

3. Database Tools (e.g. SQL Editor, Visual Query Builder, Visual Database
Designer) now switch to the active database automatically each time when the
tool window becomes active.

4. Visual Database Designer: a possibility to hide/show grid in database
objects was added. This option is available in the Visual Database Designer
window through the Show Grid In Objects item of the Display Mode button
drop-down menu. (*)

5. SQL Script: now the database drop-down list updates itself in compliance
with the databases currently active and reverts to its initial state if the
assigned database closes.

and it looks like other child windows of the application.

redesigned to avoid undesirable toolbar behaviour. (*)
