This beta includes many new features that have been requested on the forum, or through private communication.

new features in this version include:

  • Added Javascript tree control. This makes navigating through the docs easier if you are not using the CHM. Tree works on most browsers (IE, Firefox, Safari, etc). Also added a "view html" button to the GUI so you can easily launch the html docs in your default browser and check out this fancy new tree :)

  • Added <keyword> element for xml comments

  • Add another level of nesting for schema-scoped objects in the contents tree of the CHM, and also in the javascript tree discussed above. For example, instead of Tables/Schema.TableName, it’s like this: Tables/Schema/TableName.

  • SQL Server: show DDL for agent jobs. Requires SMO to be installed on the client.

  • SQL Server: add detail about logins on database overview page.

  • SQL Server: document endpoints, controlled with the /ep switch, or a checkbox in the GUI.

  • SQL Server: hide the MS_DiagramPane extended properties unless you specifically ask for them by passing /i 1.

  • SQL Server: show xml comments in the overview pages if present. Give precedence to the relevant MS_Description extended property if it is present.

  • SQL Server: add a “calculated” column to the columns table to show whether a table column is calculated or not

  • SQL Server: add “comments first” feature so that the “comments” column will appear next to the “name” column if you pass /cf 1. In the GUI, this is exposed with the “comments first” checkbox.

  • SQL Server: add support for custom comments for these types: TABLE, VIEW, PROCEDURE, FUNCTION, TRIGGER, AGGREGATE

  • Analysis Server: add ability to exclude objects from AS docs using an exclusion list.

  • Analysis Server: add dependency graph to CubeDimension pages.

  • Oracle: add comments, columns section for views.

  • Oracle: add comments, columns section for materialized views.
