This is great news, thank you!


Great, will try it out :)

Keep up the good work guys! :)

Tremendous work. It’s great to see so much activity around this app. Love what you’ve got so far.


The release notes page has the wrong year on it. Not to nit pick – I just want to make sure you don’t scare away someone who might think this project has gone stale (I almost thought so!)


Thanks for the feedback guys!

Brandon: Thanks for spotting this. Have amended the release notes page.


“greatly improved stability” … well, not really. 0.9.7 crashed like … never and 0.9.8 crashes quite often.

But nevertheless. Great app! I don’t know how I could live without it :)


Dominik: it should be far more stable ;) Of course that doesn’t prevent a couple of bugs slipping through – if you’re reporting them via the logger that should pop up after it crashes, we’re much more likely to fix them fast now!

We’ve already fixed a few bugs which will make it into the final – do keep reporting (the biggest is one with old servers – is that what you were running into?)

Just downloaded it and tested it out… works really nice. Thanks for adding user support. This is almost a complete replacement for phpmysqladmin, just need to be able to create views.

I’ve only experienced a few crashes with Sequel Pro, and it’s mostly on importing data. Otherwise it’s quite solid.

Thanks for the great app!

User management ? It was the only missing piece. Wonderful :)

Loveable app +1


i noticed only crashes with 0.9.7 sometimes, when “sequel pro” was connected to some remote database server (using ssh tunnel) and my internet-connection went away. great stability! i wonder what you guys would think of an additional tabbed interface. i could have open multiple tables with different queries and fast switch between them … on the other hand i could use “query history” or “query favorites”, but i think a tabbed interface would be cool nevertheless.

Looks great so far! I think harald may be onto something with a tabbed interface, it’d be especially helpful when I’m working remotely with limited screen real estate.

Great app either way :)

@harald @Bill Don’t worry a tabbed interface is definitely on our to do list for the next version :) See:



Great work, guys! You rock. I love the user interface.

Hi, so can I connect to my sql server databases with this software, or is it just mysql?

Stuart Connolly

@Justin SSL support will be coming, most likely after 1.0. Check out:

@Simon Currently only MySQL is supported, but support for other DBMS is planned. See:


thanks for the reply, have to say this product looks great – great front end, leader of the pack by far

I’m sure its a big undertaking on your part – but do you have a time frame for the sql server support?

many thanks


I have the same problem as Dominik: I have exactly the same number of bugs in the 0.9.8 as in the 0.9.7, i.e. zero.

The biggest problem is that I have to wait for the SQlite management :(

But *very* good work, guys!
Thank you!

Stuart Connolly

Hey Simon,

There is currently no timeline on adding multiple DBMS support, except that it’ll be after version 1.0 is released and to be honest we’re more likely to start working either SQLite or PostgreSQL first as it’s the most requested.

You’re right though, adding this support is a major undertaking that’ll take a while to get right, but we’re committed to getting it done :)
