The second early access release of SQL Prompt 5 is now ready for you to try.

What’s new?
In addition to features in the first early access release, this new release introduces:
  • Column Dependencies
  • Find Unused Variables and Parameters (introduced from SQL Refactor)
  • Encapsulate As New Stored Procedure (introduced from SQL Refactor)
  • Summarize Script (introduced from SQL Refactor)
For full details, including how to try out all these features, see What’s new in SQL Prompt 5?

Before you start
If you already have the first SQL Prompt 5 early access release installed, simply run the new installer to upgrade.

If you do not already have SQL Prompt 5 installed, please uninstall SQL Prompt 4 and SQL Refactor before trying the SQL Prompt 5 Early Access release.

How do I get the early access release?
Subscribe to the SQL Prompt early access mailing list and we’ll provide you with the download details.

Feedback
SQL Prompt 5 is still in development, and we value any feedback you may have; please let us know if you have any comments or suggestions.
If you find an error or bug with the early access release, please post a detailed description of the error here in the SQL Prompt 5 EAP forum.

What’s still to come?
We’re working on the following new features for further early access releases:
  • Find Invalid Objects
  • Qualify Object Names (from SQL Refactor)
  • Expand Wildcards (from SQL Refactor)

We look forward to your feedback,

Any news on a new release? The second EAP hangs my SSMS window on SQL 2008 R2 when I connect to a Server. With the first EAP having quit just now, I can't continue testing. I am not quite sure what to send or if there is anything to send at this time. Just know that this release doesn't work for me and I've seen some other posts here as well about problems with the second EAP.

I have found the same hang with SSMS 2008 R2. What I found cured this was to cancel the initial connection dialog and then try to connect. All appears to be OK from then on.

You can make this the default in SSMS 2008 by going to Tools -> Options and set it to open an empty environment at startup.

@markv - sadly that didn't work for me - tried it last night. Smile Rolled back to v4 afterwards and was pleasantly surprised to find that my snippets from that version were still intact.

@Paul - shot you a message back, though I realize it's pretty late already if you're in the UK office. I'm running on v4 for now so have some time.

Hi,

To get the download location you are required to sign up to the SQL Prompt Early Access . This allows us to easily update you when there's a new version for you to try.

Kind regards,

David

I have finally given up on SQL Prompt 5 too... it was just cause too many issues with locking up the SSMS at random times. Today's was that I was browsing through my tables and went to right click... then nothing else worked and SSMS even disappear from the taskbar though it was actually still running when you alt-tab'd!

Wow, not seen any problems like that.

There are a few niggles with prompting getting in the way of typing - I think functions should rank over column names so typing object should give Object_id at top rather than expanding to objectid from a dmv ... and I still think that no aliases should be the same as snippet shortcuts. IE if I have a table called InternsJunior its alias should be InJ not IJ as IJ expands to Inner Join as soon as you tab on...

I'll have to uninstall it too.

Since yesterday I can't use SSMS because it hangs connecting to any server.

For those experiencing problems with the second early access release of SQL Prompt 5, could you try the third early access release and post how you get on?

We have fixed a number of bugs so it would be good to get feedback on any issues that remain.

Thanks,
