Oracle SQL Developer Updated

Another day, another Oracle SQL Developer release. That brings the current release to:

Early Adopter Release 7, version 1.0.0.14.54
March 8, 2006

To get an idea of the frequency of new SQL Developer EA releases:

  • Early Adopter Release 6, version 1.0.0.14.22
    March 2, 2006

  • Early Adopter Release 5, version 1.0.0.13.43
    February 23, 2006

  • Early Adopter Release 4, version 1.0.0.11.84
    February 14, 2006

  • Early Adopters Release 3, version 1.0.8.97
    January 25, 2006

  • Early Adopters Release 2, version 1.0.7.96
    January 11, 2006

  • Early Adopters Release 1, version 1.0.7.15
    December 28, 2005

That is 7 releases in 4 months, or 1.75 releases a month. That tells me that SQL Developer developers are listening to users and actively and quickly responding to bug fixes and new feature requests. That’s a good thing.

    They’ve produced more tragedies than Shakespeare!!

    And they are still producing. Hopefully the “tragedies” will cool down soon so we see “production” at the end of the tunnel.

    The problem with releasing so often is that they haven’t sorted a mechanism for exporting and importing configuration data (preferences, update centre URLs). This is particularly odd given that there’s apparently been over thirty builds between March 2 and March 7. I guess The SQL Dev team don’t tweak many preferences…
