This is not freeware version.

Excellent program.

@skapig, Good catch. I saw that the Issue with auto-formating has been fixed in the latest build. http://www.webyog.com/bl...eta-1-has-been-released/

Features:
* Both SQLyog and SJA will now detect if Base64 encoding is required for HTTP-tunnel.

Funtionality changed:
* CHUNK setting (for exports) now also has effect for non-HTTP-tunneled connections. Using this option is required if it takes more time to retrieve data from a table than server ‘net_write_timeout’ setting.
* SQLyog will now not reconnect if connection is lost during imports. Instead an error message will prompt (the reason for this is that session variables defined on top of the script would be reset to server defaults with reconnection. As a result (and most important) special characters could garble and other errors could occur as well)..
* When trying to INSERT or UPDATE spatial data types from the DATA/RESULT tab SQLyog will now throw an error. Spatial data must be handled from the editor (but a result set from a table with spatial columns can be updated from RESULT tab if there are no spatial columns in the result).

Pretty nice software (even if the free version has nags). However, my major gripe which continues to be ignored is that the text in the query editor does not match what is saved to the file system when auto-formatting is in use (example: caps). This is appallingly bad design and extremely obnoxious.

frodo888, dude, once again it comes down to diminishing returns. Yes the full version of SQLyog has more features, but for common day to day tasks no one should have to spend money to manage an open source database.

The freeware/nagware version of this program just sucks and is actually inferior to Heidi.

Heidi SQL is a low feature database package. You can't compare both products. If you compare it, Heidi SQL will lose...

HeidiSQL kicks this programs butt, is 100% free and open source and NO NAGS! RC4 is out, works great.

They add more and more notifications about upgrading to enterprise version. At 7.1 there is such notification when I close program. Unfortunately, I'm searching alternative now :(

@incisor

You're comparing this to heidisql? Did you even compare the feature lists? Are you a complete n00b?

This has 10 times the power of heidisql. There is NO comparison.

Nice, but in comparison to www.heidisql.com (open source) i can only give it a 4.

@evergre:
the original mysqlfront (by ansgar becker) was open source, the author sold the NAME, the new owner sold a similar tool under the name mysqlfront and did crap, the original open source mysqlfront returned with the name heidisql....

Yes they do have a free open source version, with minimal nagging, only a splash screen ad and an status bar link to buy the premium version, however the one they're linking to is not that. They're linking to the trial of the enterprise version, which is a pretty cheap trick for them to pull.

It does a lot of things in an unconventional way, which isn't necessarily bad, but requires a little getting used to. For example it automatically groups the constraints in a sublist beneath each table, which is kinda nice, but very unconventional. Every other program I've used, Oracle, MySQL GUI tools, and SQLite Browser, all group them as part of the information schema.

It seems significantly better than last time I tried it, however I'm perfectly happy with the official MySQL GUI tools, especially considering they have all the features that you only get with this in the premium version.

I'd give it a four overall, but bump it down to a three cause of their trickery, linking to the trial download and saying it's freeware. If you want the actual freeware version it's called "SQLyog MySQL GUI - Community Edition" and you can get it on their download page:

While a very good piece of software its NOT freeware. Nagware is more like it, and crippleware as most of the really good functions are unavailable.

Try HeidiSQL an open source alternative instead,
