Oxford, United Kingdom (May, 31th, 2005) – EMS, leaders in database administration software development, today announced the release of the popular PostgreSQL server administration and development tool. It offers plenty of tools for experienced users to satisfy all their needs.
Latest PostgreSQL versions support
PostgreSQL Manager now works with any PostgreSQL versions up to 8.0 and supports all of the latest PostgreSQL features including tablespaces, argument names in functions, changing column types and dollar-quoted strings.
State-of-the-art graphical user interface
The interface of PostgreSQL Manager was completely revised based on user comments and requests. It provides well-described wizard system, so clear in use that even a newbie will not be confused with it. Now it has become easier than ever to navigate through the Database Explorer tree with possibility of creating a tab for any node of the tree. Creating such tabs will minimize scrolling on large trees. For example, you can create a tab for each registered database and switch between them with a single click on a tab. With new Windows Toolbar you can switch between windows easily like in Windows Task Bar. New useful Navigation Bars in most of the windows make most seasonable actions always at hand.
Powerful Visual Database Designer
The Visual Database Designer was completely remade to satisfy the needs of developers. Its obvious new look together with powerful features result in high-grade tool for visual database development. It has improved diagram navigation, two diagram notations (IDEF1x and IE), a lot of visual customization options and much more. Ability to create several pages in one diagram allows you to divide diagram into different subject areas.
New exciting data management abilities
New powerful data management tools will make PostgreSQL Manager your favorite tool to work with data in PostgreSQL. It has plenty of useful tools such as data grouping, summarizing, fast searching and filtering to make your work with data as easy as it can be. One of unique features of PostgreSQL Manager is ability to work with data in multi-level mode to view and modify data in several related tables at once. You can represent data in a table or card view according to your needs. Ability to copy and paste selected records will be helpful in many situations. The last but not least, you can now print your data exactly as you see them with the new advanced printing system.
Easy database administration from anywhere
Another unique feature of PostgreSQL Manager is ability to connect to PostgreSQL if the server doesn't allow direct connections to PostgreSQL, but allows establishing HTTP connections. Most ISP/Web Hosting Partners block the PostgreSQL port or prevent remote connections to PostgreSQL. In this case PostgreSQL Manager is the only alternative to web-based administration tools like phpPgAdmin. It can access PostgreSQL Server through HTTP tunnel without any limitations in functionality. This feature also will be useful in case of Internet access through HTTP proxy only.
Better report handling
In PostgreSQL Manager 3 you can manage reports in the same way as if they were a database object, i.e. you can access reports directly through DB Explorer tree. Reports can be stored either in a database or in a separate file. The new Create Report Wizard allows you to create simple report in a few clicks.

EMS PostgreSQL Manager 3 Professional for Windows has an estimated street price of US$195 for business license and US$98 for non-commercial license. There is also available the light freeware version EMS PostgreSQL Manager 3 Lite for Windows.
