Pimp the database diffs management with new dbForge Studio for SQL Server v5.8

October 10th, 2019

We are glad to announce that we have just rolled out the new dbForge Studio for SQL Server, v5.8. This version features massive improvements of data and schema comparison features, including redesigned diffs presentation, and provides as convenient and effective management and deployment of data and schema diffs as never before.

Schema Compare and Sync

Schema Compare and Sync functionality include the following new features and improvements.

Object Filter

The new feature allows filtering objects right in Comparison Document. Applying advanced filters makes the analysis of schema comparison results more effective, informative, and bespoke. The feature also allows applying multiple filers and creating custom filters with Filter Editor which can be saved, and used for further comparisons.
