Version 3.2, February 21, 2023

New features:

  • DBEdit generates value lists based on MySQL and PostgreSQL ENUM values.

Improvements:

  • DBEdit uses the MySql.Data.MySqlClient data provider installed on the system.

    This solution allows installing and using the newest version of the provider:
    https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/net/
  • DBEdit dynamically replaces the missing MySql.Data.MySqlClient data provider with the built-in MySqlConnector provider.
