SQL Monitor 9

SQL Monitor 9.2 Release Notes

When should I upgrade?

  • We aim to release a build every two weeks that includes the latest incremental features and bug fixes. These builds are identified by a three-part version number, such as v9.2.2. So if you’ve identified a particular feature from the release notes that you need, you can download the relevant build.
  • If you want to wait until all aspects of a feature have been fully completed, it’s best to use a quarterly minor version release, identified by a two-part version number such as v9.2.
  • Annual major releases (such as v9) combine multiple feature releases and undergo additional QA
SQL Monitor version 9.2.0 and above requires .NET Framework 4.7.2 or later.
