Release Notes

DBeaver EE 4.3

December 11 2017

DBeaver EE version 4.3 is the first real Enterprise version. We are thankful to everyone who have bought DBeaver licenses and thus supported our development efforts. And we are really inspired by the multiple things that we can do for the product thanks to the Enterprise version.
