The most important change:

    gsqlcmd checks updates according to a customized scheduler.
    You can run the update tool manually using the AutoUpdate mode.
  • gsqlcmd supports WHERE and ORDER BY clauses in SELECT queries from files and URLs.
  • gsqlcmd uses the convert mode by default for inline SELECT queries from files and URLs.
  • gsqlcmd supports the following authorization schemas with the Auth option: Auto, None, Basic, Windows, Forms, OAuth1, OAuth2, Custom.
    Use a new /interactive option to acquire authorization credentials in the interactive mode.
  • gsqlcmd has new OAuth2-specific modes and options.
    Modes: get-authcode, get-token, refresh-token, and revoke-token.
    Options: /authorizationUrlFormat, /getTokenUrlFormat, /getTokenBodyFormat, /refreshTokenUrlFormat, /refreshTokenBodyFormat, /revokeTokenUrlFormat, /revokeTokenBodyFormat, /authorizationUrl, /getTokenUrl, /refreshTokenUrl, /revokeTokenUrl, /code, /validTo.
  • gsqlcmd has new OAuth1-specific modes and options.
    Modes: get-authcode, get-token, and refresh-token.
    Options: /consumerKey, /consumerSecret, /callback, /requestTokenUrl, /authorizationUrl, /accessTokenUrl, /oauthToken, /oauthTokenSecret, /oauthSessionHandle, /oauthExpiresIn, /validTo.
  • gsqlcmd supports user-defined options used in OAuth1 and OAuth2 authorization.
    For example, you can set values of the accounts-server option acquired from ZohoCRM to use the values in the /get_token_url_format and /refresh_token_url_format options.
  • gsqlcmd has new /cookie and /cookieFile options especially useful with the Forms authorization.
  • gsqlcmd has new /urlParameters and /authorizationHeader options used with the custom authorization.
    gsqlcmd adds URL parameters to a URL and sets the authorization header of the web requests.
    You can achieve the same result specifying an initial URL with the parameters and the header like /header=Authorization: <AuthorizationHeader>.
  • gsqlcmd has a new /tokenFields option that explicitly allows specifying fields to save in the /tokenJson file.
  • gsqlcmd has a new /serviceJson option designed to load service configurations from JSON or plain text files.
    You can split client, service, and token options across the files like /clientJson=client.json /serviceJson=service.json /tokenJson=token.json
  • gsqlcmd has a new /acceptEncoding option with the default value: gzip, deflate.
  • gsqlcmd reads the default values of the Accept and UserAgent headers from the gsqlcmd.exe.config file.
  • Plain text option files can contain line comments starting with the # character.
  • gsqlcmd shows the shortest help by default. Use /? to get more help and the help mode to get the full help.
