Subject ANN: IBUtils - new version of FREE IB/FB table links viewer
Author aleskahanek
I would like to announce new version of IBUtils - FREE IB/FB database
schema viewer for Firebird and Interbase.

The application IBUtils is designed for simlifying database design for
Interbase and Firebird databases by showing the links between the
tables in your database visually, like some CASE tools do. Every
change to the tables in your database made by other tools can be
refreshed by one mouse click.

You can create tables and tables links, create or drop fields, create
indexes, reorder fields etc. You can quickly run SQL scripts against
the database. All changes to database are logged to a file so you can
easily reproduce the changes on another database.

You can create custom notes with descriptions of tables or fields and
also custom links (links which are displayed only in the model and are
not saved in the database).

You can easily browse the database tables data, insert, edit or delete
records. The table data can be exported to Excel, Word, RTF, HTML,
DBF, TXT, CSV, DIFF, Sylk, LaTeX, SQL or Clipboard.

You can easily print the database model or export the model image to
clipboard or JPG image etc.

There is a new download location:

19-Apr-2006 version

New features
- Show Unique Keys - Fields that are part of unique index are now
displayed with the grey "key" icon in the first column. Also when
using the "Keys only" option, such fields are always visible (you can
use this fields to establish a new foreign key). The primary key is
still displayed with the yellow "key" icon (note, that primary keys
are always unique).
- General Options - There is a new dialog (File / General Options
menu), just with one option only (more to come ... :).
- Load Last Opened Models After Start - When this options is checked,
all models opened in the last session are loaded when starting IBUtils
next time.
Bug fixes
- Fixed AV when deleting table from the model and the fields listbox
was focused.
- After doing some changes in the values of "Databases" dialog (User,
Database or Alias, Metadata log) and clicking Replace and Connect
button old values appeared in the IBUtils Login Dialog instead the
new values. Fixed.
- A new table added to the model is now better resized.
