  • Ensure that a user can connect to a server using SSL certificates and identity files from a shared storage.
  • Fixed an issue where the dark theme shows a white background when all tabs are closed.
  • Fixed an issue where the schema diff incorrectly marked tables as different due to schema-qualified trigger functions in the trigger definitions.
  • Fixed an issue where backslash breaks syntax highlighting.
  • Fixed an issue where query tool shortcuts for find/replace are not working.
  • Fixed new line indentation in the query editor and added a user preference to disable it.
