Important for v 2.5 users: to get updated "ResultsGrid:Scripting Templates" please after installation go to settings and delete ALL Scripting templates and restart SSMS. New default improved templates will be created. One of them is template that allows to get all results grid into Excel with 1 click !

Changelog v 2.6

NEW FEATURES:
-Jump to parent BEGIN or END statement in SQL code.
Command is available via Ctrl+Shift-UpArrow / Ctrl+Shift-DownArrow shortcuts or via SQL Editor context menue.

-Added support for Registered Servers functionality of SSMS (View->Registered Servers):
-Added "Expand All"/"Collapse All" commands to "Local Server Groups" context menue as well as for all subfolders.
-Added commands to context menue of registered servers:
-Set as active connection - makes connection active in current SQL Editor window
-Add to preferred connections - adds registered server to SSMSBoost preferred connections list

-New GridScripter functionality:
-right clicking grid results allows to select range for data scripting:
-selected data in current grid
-all data from current grid
-data from all returned grids
-added possibility to specify output file name using flexible templates
-added data-type specific formatting
-new setting "Save Granularity", allowing to specify when to begin scripting into new file. Choose between
-Row (generates one output file per row)
-Block (Selection or Grid)
-Entire (all output is scripted into one file)
-Post-process scripted values usage in SQL/HTML or XML documents,encoding special symbols
-IMPORTANT: GridScripter templates were updated to re-use the full power of new functionality. If you
upgrade from v2.5 and already have Scripting Templates which you did not modify, we advise you to
DELETE all of them, using Settings dialogue. After restart of SSMS environment SSMSBoost will fill
Scripting Templates collection with default templates.

IMPROVEMENTS:
-Increased interval for community edition updates to 120 days. (Presious value was 45)

-Match current database with databases from registered servers
-Match current server with servers from preferred connections
-Match current server with servers from registered servers
-Default status bar color from SSMS Settings

Scripting templates, Grid Visualisers and Connections. It allows you to copy configuration entries outside
the SSMSBoost, process them in any text editor and paste them back. Purpose: we will add a special
"Scripting templates" thread in user forum, so users can exchange useful scripting templates with each other.

-Preferred connections can be sorted now in settings dialogue

-New option "General Settings"->"Focus Object Explorer After locate" controls whether to move focus to Object
Explorer or leave it in SQL Editor

in Object Explorer tree

-Updated Tao Klerks SqlFormatter.exe to v1.4.1 (Used for formatting feature)

SSMSBoost v2.9 Beta released:

www.ssmsboost.com/beta/S...r2008_2.9.4848.39710.msi

If no serious bugs will be found we will make release within next 1-2 days.
Please post your feedback at dedicated topic "v2.9"

Changelog:
NEW FEATURES:
-Editor contents history: SSMSBoost regularly makes backup copies of your work to disk.
You can choose events when checkpoints should be made. No copy will be saved if
nothing was changed since last checkpoint to save disk space. You can search in history
using new search form or use standard "find in files" functionality. Pay attention that
this feature is disabled by default and should be enabled in settings.
-Recent Tabs: allows to save quickly current set of tabs. SSMSBoost remembers document
names and their connections. If documents are new and were not saved they will be still
remembered. This feature might help you recover lost work after SSMS crashes or restore
last tabs on the next day. This feature is different to old "Sessions" functionality:
Sessions are kind of "Document sets" or "Projects", which are supposed to live a long
time. "Recent Tabs" is more like standard "Recent documents" functionality. Note: this
feature is disabled by default, you will have to enable it in settings.
-Executed Statements Logging: Saves executed statements with information about execution
results to specified folder. Allows you to find queries that you have run some time ago
and reuse them. Note, that this is the PREVIEW of the feature. Currently only dumping of
executed statements is implemented. In next version we are going to release search form.
Note that format of logging files might be changed.
-New option for "Copy headers" Results Grid feature, allowing to specify if column [names]
should be delimited: always, never or automatically.
-SSMS template parameters syntax <name, type, default value> can be now used in Results
grid scripting templates. We have added option allowing to show dialog for parameters
replacement BEFORE scripting begins. If you want to specify parameters AFTER scripting,
then you can use built-in Template Parameters replacement (Ctrl-Shift-M)
-SSMSBoost install files and .dll are now digitally signed with code-signing certificate.
Hopefully this will make easier installing SSMSBoost in corporate networks.

IMPROVEMENTS:
-Added separate formatters for DATE and TIME types support to Results Grid
scripting templates
-Autoreplacements can now use case-sensitive tokens (can be configured per token)
-Autoreplacements can now use custom symbol to specify new cursor location after
replacement is done (can be different per Autoreplacement)
-Add {ProjectName} and {Connection} patterns to "Custom SSMS window title" feature
-"New query window" parameter will be now "false" by default when
adding Preferred connection.
-When searching in Editor Contents History it is possible to use external configurable
comparison tool to compare different versions or previous version against current file.
-More information is now shown if SSMSBoost fails to establish connection to dead server
-Improvements in "Find in Grid" functionality
-added case-sensivity
-add possibility to mask * and ? via \
-improved working with search results. Just check all available options there.
-Other minor fixes in functionality and usability

FIXES:
-Added missing "LF" in CR/LF in Autoreplacements editor
-Fixed focus behavior, after "Find in Grid" command
-Fixed situation when command sometimes will not appear on toolbar, even if explicitly configured in SSMSBoost.
-Remove SSMS Installation path checks from SSMSBoost installers
-Updated "F" to "G" formatting in standard scripting templates for numbers
-Other small and big fixes

SSMSBoost v2.10 Beta released.

Links:
http://www.ssmsboost.com...2008_2.10.4957.30640.msi
http://www.ssmsboost.com...2012_2.10.4957.30631.msi

Changelog:
Improvements:
-Grid scripting engine is now disk-buffered and can script big amounts of data from
results grid.
-Updated parsing engine. "Locate object" and "Script Object" functionality now support
objects in other databases and linked servers. Note, you should have enough rights at
least to see those objects in Object Explorer to have possibility to locate/script them.
-Following parameters can be used in Autoreplacements: {User}, {Server}, {Database},
{Connection}, {Timestamp} , {Timestamp:Format} (.Net datetime format). They will be
replaced by current values from connection/time when autoreplacement is triggered.
-added new standard autoreplacement token "now" (case sensitive) as
'{Timestamp:yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.fff}'.
Use it whenever you need current time in
your scripts. The output will look like: '2013-07-29 12:43:45.487'. Users of previous
versions can add it themselves using values provided above.
-SSMS template parameters syntax <name, type, default value> can be used in
autoreplacements. If autoreplacement has SSMS parameter the parameters replacement
dialog will be shown automatically (this behavior can be changed using global setting)
-New grid scripting template added: INSERT INTO (scripts results grid as a set of
INSERT INTO statements). Users of previous versions can get this template here:
http://www.ssmsboost.com...from-v-2-10.aspx#post446
-added new autoreplacement "sis" (search in sources): simple SQL code to perform search
in source code of database objects using own SQL Server capabilities. Users of previous
versions can get this autoreplacement here:
http://www.ssmsboost.com...replacement.aspx#post447
-When SSMS environment has no active SQL Editor window the Preferred Connections dropdown
on the toolbar is not disabled anymore. Instead if you choose any preferred connection
a new SQL Editor window will be opened and connected.

Fixed:
-Objects Search window would sometimes not display if database diagram window was active
-Other minor improvements and bugs fixed

SSMSBoost v2.12 Beta released.
http://www.ssmsboost.com...tsm4613_v-2-12-Beta.aspx

2.12
NEW FEATURES:
-Added "Regions" functionality. SSMSBoost supports/reuses existing regions syntax
--#region [Name]
--#endregion
Additionally we have improved this functionality by adding an option to automatically scan for
declared regions upon opening of file. "Regions" Menu on the toolbar includes commands:
"Create region", "Create named region" and "refresh regions". "Create region" commands can be
executed when some part of code is selected to include selection into newly created region.
-Vertical Guidelines for both SSMS 2008 and SSMS 2012 environments. Now you can configure SSMSBoost
to display vertical guidelines at one or more positions. This helps to keep lines width under
control. By default SSMSBoost comes with 3 vertical guidelines at positions 80,100 and 120. You are
free do adapt this setting to your personal preference: define alternative column positions and
color. Please note, that due to implementation differences you need to restart SSMS 2008
for changes to take effect. Changes in SSMS 2012 are visible immediately.
-"Recover last closed tab" button added to toolbar. SSMSBoost allows you to recover even
unsaved documents.
-SSMS 2012 always sets "IntelliSence autocompletion" to "On" whenever you open a new query window.
This is unfixed bug confirmed by Microsoft. We have added the possibility to define global default
setting for IntelliSense behaviour. See General Settings->"Intellisense enabled by default" option.

IMPROVEMENTS:
-When scripting objects to new window using SSMSBoost "script object" command (F2) the new
tab name is pre-initialized with configurable filename instead of "QueryN.sql". Filename can be
customized in General Settings->Scripting->Filename Customizaion and can contain
object name and schema.
-Autoreplacements can be configured to be triggered not only by enter/tab/space but by any
character as well, like "("
-Autoreplacements can be provided with optional Displayname, which can be helpful when scrolling
through the list of existing autoreplacements.
-Autoreplacements can be disabled by setting "Autoreplacements trigger" to None
-Improved compatibility when working with SQL2000 databases
-Due to improvements of "Recent tabs" functionality we had to rename "Sessions" to "Workspaces".
"Workspace" (old "Session") is a permanent set of documents and their connections that can be
loaded instantly loaded into SSMS. It is useful for daily recurring tasks, where you work with
known set of documents.
-"Recent Tabs" functionality contains now list of recent documents including their connections.
"Recent tabs"->"Sessions" contains list of recent Sessions, where last working environment can be
restored completely with all documents and their connections. SSMSBoost recovers documents even if
they were not saved by user (unsaved QueryN.sql documents)
-Objects Search form can now script/copy multiple objects selected in search results
-Selecting part of identifier and running locate/script command will force SSMSBoost to consider
only selected sub-string.
-Editor Contents History: Added original file path, event and timestamp header to autosaved files.
-Improved behaviour: to save start-up time SSMSBoost will not open documents mentioned in preferred
connections (open at start-up) if SSMS is started with command-line parameters.

Updated 2.12 beta release:

http://www.ssmsboost.com...tsm4613_v-2-12-Beta.aspx

Changes:
-Improved GOTO BEGIN/END performance on large files
-Added "Max document size" parameter under "Editor Contents History".If document exceeds specified
size in bytes neither it's contents history will be logged, nor the execution history will be
saved. Set to 0 - to remove limitation. Default limit is 10MB. Used to prevent SSMSBoost from
saving history of database content dumps loaded as huge .sql files, consuming disk space and
decreasing performance.

http://www.ssmsboost.com...stst1240_v2-13-Beta.aspx

NEW FEATURES:
-SSMS 2014 is now Supported !
-New Formatter with user-customizeable templates. Allows deep customization of formatter options.
Note, this is first release with some kind of preview status. Previous formatter is available
through "Old fashion formatter style" option on the toolbar. We encourage all enhusiasts to use
new formatter and write us your feedback and maybe even send your formatting templates.
-Recent Connections list (see "Recent" menu)
-Added "Max document size" for SQL Editor history feature. Customize this value if you do not want
to create history entries for example for scripted data.

Improvements:
-Overall startup speed improvement
-Created "SSMSBoost" menu right after "Tools" menu. Cleaned-up SSMSBoost toolbar and moved some
commands there
-Created custom icons for SSMSBoost commands for Toolbar, SQLEditor context menu and
grid context menu
-Recent connections and recent sessions are moved to specialized launchers (see "Recent" menu)
-Moved the way autoreplacements, grid scripting templates,preferred connections, workspaces and
recent connections were saved: instead of using one big settings file, each entry is now saved as
separate XML file on disk. This enables you to easily customize, share and backup your data. But be
caferull with modifications: do not corrupt the files.
-Complete redesign of Settings dialog
