pgEdit public beta for Macintosh and Windows

P: n/a
The first public beta for pgEdit is now available (see product
description below). If you would like to participate in the beta
program, evaluate the software and send some feedback to me (e.g.
criticism, bug reports, feature requests). The first responders will
receive a 30 day trial registration key to remove demonstration mode
restrictions. A limited number of registration keys will be
distributed, so respond soon if you would like to receive a
registration key. If you don't respond right away, quality feedback is
another way to get a registration key :).

Thanks for your help!

=====
pgEdit is a high performance SQL editor and development environment
designed specifically for PostgreSQL relational databases. pgEdit
features include:

* SQL Syntax coloring specifically designed for PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL represents function bodies as single quoted strings which
most editors render with a single color. pgEdit promotes better
usability and correctness by using SQL syntax coloring within the body
of function strings. Keyword coloring is based directly on the source
code of PostgreSQL.
* SQL source code execution without saving the file or switching
applications

pgEdit can execute the SQL source code for (1) the entire buffer, (2)
the highlighted region, (3) the current SQL containing the cursor, or
(4) the current SQL line to the end of the file buffer.
* Direct integration with psql, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal

In addition to SQL, almost all psql commands are supported. This
provides a powerful facility for examining, designing, and managing
databases.
* Extensive and customizable editing facilities

pgEdit is a full featured text editor with hundreds of commands
available. A friendly interface is included to provide online
documentation and customize the key bindings for any command. Menu
shortcuts can also be customized. pgEdit supports traditional Macintosh
and Windows editing features, as well as Emacs-style key bindings.
* Integrated documentation

Help in pgEdit is provided with context sensitive links to the online
documentation displayed in your preferred web browser. The PostgreSQL
documentation is also included with direct links to important sections
provided in the pgEditHelp menu. The documentation for the SQL command
nearest to the cursor can be retrieved by pressing a user configurable
key sequence.
* Cross platform and easy to install

pgEdit is a native application for both Macintosh and Windows. It does
not use Java or require installation of external libraries. You have
the option of using the version of psql included with pgEdit or a
different version installed anywhere on your hard drive.

That's what you call "cross-platform," eh?
It does
not use Java ...

This is supposed to be an advantage?

Ah well, I don't use Mac or Windows, so I guess we're even ;).

Absolutely. The situation on Linux and Windows may be better, but it is
immediately obvious on the Mac when a GUI application uses Java rather
than the native Cocoa API. And then there is the slow startup time and
huge memory requirements.

I hope to do a Linux in the near future, so I'll be looking forward to
your feedback :).

It may be simpler to define syntax coloring rules for the popular editors,
such as vim.

A good PostgreSQL editor is only the first component pgEdit. Version
1.1 will have a psql-like terminal interface with syntax coloring and
full screen editing. I'm also working on a query browser.

I still have trial keys available for anyone who would like to
participate in beta testing. I expect to have a tab completion feature
implemented in the next beta release.
