    HeidiSQL 5.0 stable released

    HeidiSQL, one of the coolest desktop apps for working with a database that i've ever used, has released version 5.0 as a stable release

    if you haven't tried it, you've got nothing to lose -- it's free

    see for the download page

    disclaimer: i have no connection to heidisql other than as a supremely satisfied user

    in my humble opinion, it beats the crap out of phpmyadmin

    from the readme file:
    *** What is HeidiSQL?

    HeidiSQL is an easy-to-use interface and a "working-horse" for web-developers using the popular MySQL-Database. It allows you to manage and browse your databases and tables from an intuitive Windows® interface.

    With HeidiSQL you will also be able to
    * Generate nice SQL-exports
    * Synchronize tables between two databases
    * Manage user-privileges
    * Import text-files
    * Export table-data as CSV, HTML, XML and SQL
    * Browse and edit table-data using a comfortable grid
    * Create and edit tables, views, stored routines and triggers
    * Bulk edit tables (move to db, change engine, collation etc.)
    * Batch-insert ascii or binary files into tables
    * Write queries with customizable syntax-highlighting and code-completion
    * Pretty reformat disordered SQL
    * Monitor and kill client-processes
    * Connect to servers via commandline
    * Find specific text in all tables of all databases of one server
    * Optimize and repair tables in a batch manner
    * And much more | @rudydotca

    Hmmm, maybe I'll give this a go instead of Toad for MySQL which seems more ridden with bugs the more I use it!
