SSMS Tools Pack 2.0 is out! With huge productivity booster features that will blow your mind and ease your job even more.

What better way to end the summer and start those productive autumn days ahead than with a fresh new version of the SSMS Tools Pack.

This is a big release with two new features that are huge productivity boosters.

First new feature are Tab Sessions. Every SQL tab you open is saved every N (default 2) minutes and is stored in a session. This works similar to internet browser sessions. Once you reopen SSMS you can restores your last session with a click of a button. You even get every window connected to the server it was previously connected to. The Tab History Window looks like this:



The second feature is Execution Plan Analyzer. It is designed to quickly help you find costliest operators by a number of properties. If that's not enough you can easily search through the whole execution plan for whatever you like.
And to top it off you can auto analyze the execution plan. The analysis reports various problems the execution plan has and suggests a most common solution. The ultimate purpose of the Execution Plan Analyzer is to make your troubleshooting quicker and easier. It uses a simple user interface that is easy to navigate and is built directly into the execution plan itself. The execution plan analyzer looks like this:



Smaller fixes include a completely redesigned SQL History Search window and various other bug fixes.

You can download the new version 2.0 at the Download page.

For more detailed feature descriptions go to the main Features Page.

Enjoy it!
