New Features in dbscript 0.95

The latest version 0.95 of dbscript adds new functionality:

Data Diagram generation

dbscript 0.95 adds the capability to generate Data Diagrams from imported and uploaded SQL Server database schemas.

This allows you to get a quick overview of a database schema. It is also useful if you plan to manually create a data diagram in Management Studio, and need some visual help of how to layout the diagram.

ScrewTurn Wiki Page Provider

In addition to the ScrewTurn documentation generator introduced in dbscript 0.94, the latest version includes a Page Provider which you add in the Administration panel of your ScrewTurnWiki installation.

Configure the Documentation Generator plugin with the same ConnectionString you use in your dbscript web application.

Next, create a Documentation Generator of type ScrewTurn Page Provider, and define its contents. After you generate, ScrewTurn Wiki displays the selected Project Version information. (You may need to restart the ScrewTurn web application)
