SQLGrinder 2 Beta 6 now available
Please see the release notes page for the full list of changes.
Some highlights: This update moves keyword fetching to a background thread, fixes schema refresh problems that were hanging the application, and handles connections that are terminated by the server in a more robust manor.
There are still some outstanding issues with Microsoft SQL Server. I still don't have access to my test server, but once I get something back, I should be able to resolve those issues.
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.
