Updates for version 1.5.1: The UI was updated to be consistent with other Data Juggler products as well as the font sizes were increased.

Also the Random Banner control was added to randomly show a few of my commercial products.
Check Constraints Are Compared (and working, the 1.4 Release I thought I had done this but it was planned and not implemented)
A Swap Button was added to swap the Source & Target Connection Strings (this was on my to do list for a year)
A link to the DB Compare movie on YouTube; a like or a few kind words here is appreciated! This is the open source equivalent of making a sale.

Updates for version 1.4.0: Check Constraints are compared (but didn't work, they are fixed in 1.5)

Updates for version 1.3.0: For the first time indexes were compared to ensure they were deployed with the database

Updates for version 1.2.0: Fixed the Stored Procedure Comparison

I tested the new stored procedure comparison module for any changes in the text,
however I had an else in the wrong place if the stored procedure was not found. My QA department (me also) only comes
in on the weekend.

Also, since I had to do a new update, I added an option to store the source and target connection strings any time you
compare. If you do not like this feature just uncheck the box and it will not store any settings.
I know the proper way to do it would be to allow saving sets of connection strings, but I only have so much time.

Updates for version 1.1.9: The original version of DB Compare was not 100% accurate for comparing stored procedures.

This version executes the procedure sp_helptext for each source and target procedure and if the text is different a comparison difference will be reported.

The text comparison is very sensitive so any comments or localizations in your procedures will report a difference that may not be a true schema difference. Any parameter or select field differences will accurately be reported now, so that is a trade off I felt is worth it.

This version also has a link to the new Data Juggler web site and a link to a program I have written called NFlate, which is a better version of Windows Explorer, as it allows you to customize the font and font size to assist people with poor vision like myself.

DB Compare is built using the same code generation engine as RAD Studio Code Generation Toolkit,
