Enhancements and Additions

  • Compare Module:

    • Results now default to the grid view, replacing the former summary graphs.
    • Errors due to non-readable AG nodes will not be flagged as differences anymore.
    • Introduced a right-click 'Take Snapshot' feature on the servers table in the Compare view.
    • Overhauled the UI for loading comparison snapshots, offering a clearer understanding of their functionality.
  • Script Module:

    • Improved execution speed for scripts with multiple batches (i.e., GO statements) � witnessing up to 25x speed improvement in certain cases.
    • Enhanced UI feedback; if a SQL connection drops during a query, the UI identifies and displays this.
    • The progress area now displays the count of batches and indicates which batch is currently in execution.
    • Real-time results updates for long-running queries ensure that users know the progression.
    • The messages tab is auto-selected if any errors arise.
    • SQL validation (using Ctrl+F5) has been optimized, detecting a broader range of errors.
  • Advise Module:

    • Resolved a bug where certain option combinations prevented the capture of instance properties.
    • Fixed an intermittent issue that halted queries in Advise if a query was terminated and swiftly restarted.
    • A bug that occasionally bypassed database file size checks has been addressed.
    • TempDB now displays as an individual node in the Advise results view. This classification ensures all TempDB issues are conveniently visible under the instance node.
    • Health Check scripts can now have quote characters escaped using a backslash.
  • General Updates:

    • Removed the registration prompt for a smoother application experience.
    • A minor painting bug on the main Ribbon has been corrected.
