** pgModeler 0.7.1 is finally out! **

Good afternoon, followers!

I proudly announce the release of the final 0.7.1. This version contains fixes for bugs reported right after the beta1 and some small features. They are:

1) Panning mode and range selection triggers can be inverted by checking an option on settings dialog. Just remembering, as of 0.7.1-beta1 the default action for click on blank areas on canvas is to activate the panning mode and to trigger the range selection user must press SHIFT and click / move the cursor.

2) Attributes created for relationships can now participate on primary keys. There was a bug on previous versions that was preventing this situation.

3) Important improvements were made on copy / paste operations.

4) Custom column positioning seems to be working fine now. User move columns up and down on table editing dialog and their positions are remembered when the model is reloaded. 

5) A minor patch was made on model fix form in order to correctly escape paths to involved files.

That's it, people!

The complete change log from alpha to final release can be seen here:

** pgModeler 0.7.1-alpha1 is out! **

Good morning , guys!

I want to inform you that a new alpha release is ready. Unlike the last one this version contains important fixes and the update is highly recommended. The main fixes are: 

1) the validation process was improved and cover some cases that previous versions doesn't;

2) a bug on model loading process was fixed. This bug was causing some objects to be wrongly discarded and changing the semantics of the whole model and sometimes (rare cases) causing the complete corruption of the entire model.

The above issues affects all previous versions including the last 0.7.1-alpha (build: 20140321).

Finally, as a last information, I've changed the binary payment policy for development releases (alpha, beta): the price increased a little but users that purchase development binaries will have access to all releases until the final version. For instance: pay for 0.7.1-alpha will grant you free download for 0.7.1-alpha1..n, 0.7.1-beta...n and 0.7.1 (final release). Normally, those releases would be sold separately.

That's it.

Hello guys!

Today I was thinking on the pgModeler development timeline.

A lot of things was done to improve the project and it reached, with the help from the community, a state of maturity that I never imagined.
A few people know but pgModeler, initially called pgsqlDBM, would never be released being only a little personal project intended to help me on my daily job.

Humbly I can say that pgModeler is a great project being compared to other tools (generally the proprietary ones) which does the same tasks.
This project came as a trying to close the gap of PostgreSQL modeling tools on the open source community. I'm glad to see that pgModeler helps a lot of people around the world.

Unfortunatelly, people use open source softwares to make money but does not return a little retribution to honor the developer effort to make a constantly improved tool.
This is no different to pgModeler: people use it a lot, request a lot of changes but make a few donations. This is very sad. To give an idea: pgModeler was downloaded almost 9000 times (this only for version 0.6.2 and 0.7.x)
and if every single download could return $1 to the project would be sufficient to maintain all the costs (yes! there are costs even for a OSS project).

Developing pgModeler takes a lot of time from me but is not returning the enough to help me. So, today made my mind: I'll finish the version 0.7.0 until the end of this month
but without a majority of features that was scheduled since I need to make money with my real job to pay my bills. I'll not abandon the project but only code less meaning that new releases will take too
long to be ready.

I hope you all can understand this situation.
See you!

KDE is wanting to help incubate and/or host more projects, especially those using Qt for end-user software, and is working to put the infrastructure in place to do so.  You don't need to change your app name or use other KDE libraries or participate in our main release cycle, you just need to share our goals and agree to a few rules, and then benefit from the huge community we have :-)  Have a read through the pages at http://manifesto.kde.org and if you're interested subscribe to https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde-community and drop a line to ask for more details on what's involved.

pgModeler 0.6.2 was downloaded 1050 times since its release on december, 20th. If people donate $1 per download it was sufficient to maintain the costs of project during, at least, six months!

So help pgModeler as it helps you on your job! Any amount is welcome. Let's donate! 

pgModeler project wish a happy new year to all followers! Thank you for any bug reported and suggestion submitted. pgModeler is made for you and by you! Long live to open source software!

The next year will be a great one for this project!
See you in 2014!

Attending to many requests from Linux users the next pgModeler release will be bundled will all needed Qt libraries. This will increase the tarball size a little but the user will no longer need to download the whole framework to run the application. 

Until next time!

After one month of hard work the first update of 0.6.x series is finished, uploaded and waiting your download! 

The only feature introduced in this release is the activation of PostgreSQL 9.3 meaning that models can be exported to this new version as well importing databases from it will work fine!

Many bugs were fixed and minor changes were made. So don't forget to take a reading on the full change log to get details:

pgModeler 0.6.0 is out!

The highlight feature in this release is the reverse engineering that is working quite well even being experimental.

There are minor improvements since beta release. Important bugs were fixed too.

I want to inform you that the 0.6.x will be used to mature the code and fix as many as possible bugs. So new features only on next major version 0.7.0

Enjoy!

About this community

PostgreSQL Database Modeler, or simply, pgModeler is an open source tool for modeling databases that merges the classical concepts of entity-relationship diagrams with specific features that only PostgreSQL implements. The pgModeler translates the models created by the user to SQL code and apply them onto database clusters from version 8.0 to 9.1.

** pgModeler 0.7.1-beta is out! **

Good morning, followers!

Finally we are close to the final 0.7.1. This beta release contains seven bug fixes and a three new small features to improve even more the productivity. Those features are:

1) An interface to pgmodeler-cli was implemented in order to give user the chance to fix a broken model from GUI without the need to call the pgmodeler-cli directly from the shell. Just go to "File > Fix a model".

2) Columns now can have a sequence as "default value". This will permit user to assign custom sequences as auto increments and correctly validate them. Additionally when SQL code is being generated the sequence linked to a column is converted into nextval('seqname'::regclass) and the column's SQL will look like: my_column integer DEFAULT nextval('seqname'::regclass).

3) A panning mode was introduced and is the default behavior when clicking at blank areas on canvas. Previously, this action was triggering the range selection. Now to activate range selection user must hold SHIFT and click/move to draw the rectangle.

That's it, people!

I proudly announce the final release of version 0.7.0! This one reunites all new features / changes / fixes from previous pre and alpha releases (approximately 70 entries on the change log). 

I've worked hard in this version and I hope you all appreciate it. I want to remind you that Iany future releases will be delayed as I told here http://goo.gl/Je614Z . Furthermore, I'll work on a  full remodeling of the project site, so a considerable time will be taken from me... :)

** pgModeler 0.7.0-alpha, build 20140207 is out! **

This is a minor update release. There are two bug fixes and little enhancements (see change log). One feature that I like to highlight is the tab navigation experience that was improved and now is a lot better than older versions. There are still some isolated tab problems but in next releases they will be fixed.

The bug list is almost done and I think I can start work on the main feature for the 0.7.0: database diff or model<->database sync. A big challange awaits!

Hello followers!

We have a new 0.7.0-alpha!

In this release, attending to some requests I've added a basic support to custom colors on tables and views through a new object called tag. Tags stores custom colors that will be assigned to tables/views when those latter makes use of the firsts.

The idea is give the user one more option to graphically separate objects on the model. The image below give a example how tags works.

On the example we have four tables. The parent one "vehicle" is inherited by "car", "airplane" and "ship" tables. Each table has a specific tag attached to it: "terrestrial", "aerial" and "aquatic". Those tags have a set of colors internally that will replace the default color configuration for tables.

On the object tree (at right) we have an entry to all tags created. If the user expands a tag he'll see all table/view linked to specific tag. 

Finally, user can quickly change a object's tag through "Quick Actions" menu by right-click a table or view and Quick > Set tag > Tag.

Note: Tags exhibition can be deactivated on settings dialog. 

In a few hours the binaries will be available on http://pgmodeler.com.br/

** pgModeler 0.7.0-pre is out! **

This release is a snapshot (preview) of the development version meaning that can be more unstable than the previous version (0.6.2). I'll try to make weekly builds for 0.7.0 until the final release in order to give users the chance to test features / fixes before the official launch.

This release contains four bug fixes and two new features! More details on change log:
https://github.com/pgmodeler/pgmodeler/blob/v0.7.0-pre_20140103/CHANGELOG.md

** pgModeler 0.6.2-beta is out! **

In this release we have important bug fixes and a couple of new features. One of them is the ability to drop a database before export the model. It's not too much to warn but if you intend to use this new option make sure to have a backup of your database because pgModeler will destroy without mercy the existent database! 

The complete changelog is here:
https://github.com/pgmodeler/pgmodeler/blob/develop/CHANGELOG.md

Binaries on the site:
http://pgmodeler.com.br/

The final 0.6.2 will be released in a week or less. So don't forget to submit any bugs in order to be fixed as soon as possible!

Enjoy!
