We've finally made the SQL Prompt 3.5 release candidate available. Actually this is only four days later than originally estimated, although in the end we were unable to create the expected early access release last week. We had some installer problems, and in the end these caused things to slip so badly that we decided the overhead of doing two releases within such a short period negated any benefit of getting the EA release out there, so I apologise that you've had to wait a little longer than I originally anticipated to get a look at 3.5.

You can download the RC from:

The 3.5 release is a major new version of SQL Prompt with many new features and improvements including:

• Visual Studio 2005 database project support
• Cross database queries
• Distributed queries across linked SQL Server instances
• Correlated subqueries
• 3 – 5 times faster metadata retrieval
• Large script support
• 40 – 95% decrease in memory footprint

We have also included dozens of bug fixes and other enhancements, and importantly have eradicated the editor hangs that have been plaguing some users.

Please bear in mind the following tips when installing the RC:

• SQL Prompt 3.5 should seamlessly upgrade your options files and snippets, however you may wish to make a backup of these files prior to upgrading. Generally they are stored in “C:\Documents and settings\{Your username}\Local Settings\Application Data\Red Gate\SQL Prompt 3”.
• If you also use SQL Prompt 2 you do not need to uninstall it, however when working with version 3.5 you should disable it to avoid having two sets of code completion pop up.

We aim to have the final release of SQL Prompt 3.5 out by the end of the month.

Kind regards,
