This is from my friend, Johnny Ortega, Lead Developer of Toad for SQL Server:
Quest has started the Toad for SQL Server v4.0 beta program. Please visit Toadsoft.com (http://www.toadsoft.com/toadsqlserver/toad_sqlserver_beta.htm) to try out beta build 188.8.131.52. Naturally, it is free and a great way to sample the feature set of this product.
For the Toad for SQL Server v4.0 beta, Quest is giving away a Nintendo Wii! (How they got one is a question I want answered!) At the end of the beta cycle, we will announce the top ten beta testers based on number of issues submitted and feedback given through the Yahoo! beta group. From the top ten beta testers, we will draw the winner.
We are in the middle of new functionality for certain features, including better Toad Insight and Version Control support for Team Foundation Server, so some functionality is not ready yet. Because of this, please focus your beta testing to the new functionality in these areas in this build:
- Export Wizard
- Query Builder
- Database Browser's Data tab
- Data Diff Viewer
Please check the beta release notes (http://www.toadsoft.com/toadsqlserver/ReleaseNotes/Beta/ToadSqlServBetaRN.htm) for more details on the new functionality in these areas.
As more features are completed in subsequent beta releases, we will highlight them for beta testing.
Happy beta testing!
Johnny Ortega - Toad for SQL Server Development Team Lead
