Lately, we have received many requests about a dangerous bug in the Log4j library, and we hasten to reassure you: None of DBeaver products use log4j for any program needs. It is entirely safe to use the latest DBeaver versions.
Well, it is officially winter. This means that there are many pleasant events ahead that we have been waiting for, like the release 21.3. We have added many useful features and databases which you have been asking about. Thank you for your feedback and for helping us get better with every new update!
Here is a list of the most important updates in the latest 2021 version of DBeaver:
The number of changes which we make for each release is so huge that we cannot highlight all of them even in the release notes. Because of that we have added a special page with extended release notes for each release like this one. Of course the tiny fixes cannot be included even in this list but if you are looking for the fix of some particular bug it makes sense to look through the big version of release notes.
But as usual there are some things in the release 21.2 that we especially want to draw your attention. More details about them are below.
We love our customers because they always inspire us to develop something big and interesting. From this point of view DBeaver is a real community-driven product. It is true for the open-source version but it is true for the commercial products as well. You can test new features before the official release in the early-access versions and send feedback. We open for your suggestions because we know that they are useful for most of our users.
The short overview of features appeared in DBeaver 21.1 thanks to our customers and partners is in this news.
We publish the major releases once per year in the middle of March. Every year almost at the same time. This year we decided to change the version numbering and link it with the year number for easy tracking. So we are happy to introduce your our new DBeaver release 21.0.
For the new big release the DBeaver team made a lot. The most interesting things are as usual in our news.
It is less than a week before the big DBeaver release. As usual our main year release will be published early March. We are glad to announce that two new DBeaver products will become available together with DBeaver EE.
But all of this is about future. Now you have the last chance to buy a new DBeaver EE license and license extension at the old price. After release all prices will be increased. The new DBeaver EE version will be available for your license even if you buy it now. The license will be extended after the end of your maintenance period even if you buy the extension now. If you think about this purchase it’s time to do this.
Every time when we write news and release notes for the new DBeaver EE version we choose what is the most important that we need to highlight. But we cannot cover everything. If you need the full list of changes you can find it on the special page now. The biggest updates form DBeaver EE 7.3 are in our news as usual.
Have you noticed that we changed the procedure of the license extending? Now, it doesn’t matter when your license expired you can buy the license extension at any time. Moreover, you do not need to do anything in DBeaver after your purchase, the license will be extended automatically.
Maybe, it’s time for renew? Let’s take a look what’s new in DBeaver 7.2.
Despite the situation with COVID-19 DBeaver team hasn’t stop development. We have worked hard for three months. Now we are glad to introduce DBeaver EE 7.1.
We continue to improve DBeaver UI and made two great features: simple view for navigation tree and column pin for data viewer. Also, release 7.1 was focused on various authentication ways and authentication automation. More details as usual below.
