Early Access Program Features

New EAP build of 2016.3: bulk submit, improved drivers management, renaming views and more.

Hi there! It’s time for the new EAP build for 2016.3 which is going to be released later this November. There are several interesting features inside, so without further ado let’s take a look at them.

Bulk submit changes

You’ve waited a long time for this way of editing data, and here it is: Now all your changes are stored locally and can be submitted at once. Local changes are colored, so you can see which changes you are going to save, be it updating, inserting or deleting rows. As usual, Ctrl/Cmd+Z is for canceling.


If you want to bring back the behavior of previous versions, turn it on in Settings.


Driver management

Now DataGrip underlines your datasource if the version of the driver is not the latest. If you really wish to use the particular version of the driver, tweak it in driver settings. Also, you can uncheck “Use provided driver” and use only files added to the Additional list. Otherwise, files in this list will be used with the provided driver.


Renaming views

DataGrip now supports renaming views: As with tables, if you rename the view it will affect the object in the database and all its usages in open files.


XML extractor

Back in 0xDBE times (remember those?) we had an XML-extractor. Some of you asked to bring it back, and we’ve obliged.


Here what the extractor’s result looks like:


SQLite support

Some improvements in SQLite support: modify table dialog now lets you add an auto-increment. Yeah, the way it’s done is tricky, but that’s how SQLite actually works!


Expression index in SQLite is not a problem for DataGrip anymore.


Besides all of the above, this build brings:

  • PostgreSQL 9.6 grammar support
  • Table resolve for SELECT * INTO in stored procedures
  • Correct resolving in type creation in Oracle

Please know, your feedback is always welcome in our twitter, forum and the issue tracker.
