We have made final switch from Drizzle to MariaDB client library for mySQL plugin and mySQL datasource in Valentina Reports.
Thank to this step we have got C client library with totally same API as native mySQL client library and therefore:
a) Implement support of few results of few commands executed at once.
b) Resolve trouble of some users which have passwords in old format.
In v5.2 of Valentina Studio we have added JSON format of dumps of Database and Table. In SQL Editor’s result pane you can choose Export -> JSON also.
Now you can execute in the SQL Editor few SELECT commands at once, separated by ’;’ and you will get few result TAB-panels opened automatically. One panel for each result.
This feature works for mySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite starting with v5.2 of Valentina Studio
This is for working with native Valentina databases.
Read this article in the Valentina WIKI about how to work with objects Database -> Tables -> Fields that have hierarchy of Collation Settings.
The Valentina team is happy to announce that Valentina Studio supports MariaDB, the drop-in replacement for MySQL from Michael “Monty” Widenius, the creator of MySQL.
One use of 4.9 Valentina ADK have told us that many his users have databases on DVD in 4,9 format. So if he will try change his app to Valentina 5.0, then how users will be able work with this read-only databases?
To resolve this, we have improve Valentina engine. Now it will make attempt to work with read-only databases in older format as is, without conversion.
Important to note, that this will work fine for 5.x engine opening 4.x databases.
Valentina Studio 5.1 is now available for free through Mac App Store. Valentina Studio 5.1 was recently released with support for SSH, making it your best choice for working with virtual hosting services and the databases you may have stored there.
Valentina Studio on the Mac App Store also has in-app upgrading to Valentina Studio Pro for your convenience.
