to Valentina Server. Valentina DB ADK is available for $199 per platform,
includes 12 months of updates and allows royalty free, unlimited deployment.

Valentina Studio 5.6 adds support for working with Hash Indexes, and
importing a CSV file during a transaction block. Several performance
improvements were also included in the release. 

Valentina Studio is the free, all purpose database administration tool for
Linux,Mac OS X and Windows, and supports management of MySQL, MS SQL Server,
SQLite, Postgre SQL and Valentina databases. Valentina Studio Pro, which has
all the features of Studio, also adds advanced visual query building, data
modeling tools and report building and testing tools. Valentina Studio Pro
