May 7, 2014
PG Commander – Version 1.3.0
Quickly find rows that contain a string. By default, all columns are searched, but you can restrict the filter to a specific column. Combine multiple filters to quickly perform complex queries, or provide a custom WHERE clause.
Copy Rows as CSV / SQL
Quickly copy rows from a table or from a query result as CSV or as SQL INSERT statements.
New Toolbar Buttons
There are three new buttons by default: a back button, a forward button and a button to quickly open the terminal. Moreover, you can now customize the toolbar (right click) to add an optional up button and a reload button.
- New: ⌘⇧T opens the SQL Terminal
- Changed: ⌘N opens the favorite window
- Changed: ⌘⌥N opens a new window for the current connection
- Materialized Views are now also supported in PG Commander. They show up alongside tables & normal views in a green color.
- Added more Retina icons
- Pictures in bytea fields are now shown in a larger size
- Removed unnecessary plain text warning when connecting to 127.0.0.1.

February 12, 2014
PG Commander – Version 1.2.1
Improved Reload Behavior
Previously, PG Commander only reloaded the currently active view when you hit ⌘R. Now PG Commander reloads the currently active view and the sidebar, and it purges cached views. This should make it behave a lot more intuitively.
- Fixed a problem with SSH Tunnels on OS X 10.8
- Fixed a problem when connecting to a SSH server for the first time.
February 1, 2014
PG Commander – Version 1.2
Finally! Connect to PostgreSQL servers behind firewalls with the included SSH tunnel support. Both password authentication and public/private key based authentication to the SSH server are supported.
SSL on by default
Instead of providing a checkbox, PG Commander now requires SSL by default. If the server doesn't support encrypted connections, PG Commander will show a warning.
Show All Databases
You can now show a list of all databases on the server when connecting.
Delete tables & views
Select the table and hit ⌘⌫ or right click on a table to bring up the context menu.
- Animations in the favorites window are now smoother.
- Default connection parameters are shown as placeholders.
- Toolbar can now be hidden.
- Scrolling tables horizontally with the trackpad/magic mouse doesn't get stuck anymore.

- PG Commander is now more robust when the server sends invalid UTF-8.

November 3, 2013
PG Commander – Version 1.1.1
Compatibility with older server versions
PG Commander can now connect to servers running PostgreSQL 8.2
- Added a menu item (and the shortcut ⌘N) for the "New Window" command.
- Fixed a crash when using the context menu in SQL Terminal.
October 11, 2013
PG Commander – Version 1.1.0
The SQL Terminal now remembers executed queries. Use ⌘⎇← and ⌘⎇→ to move backward and forward through recently executed queries.
In SQL Terminal, there are now now buttons to load queries from text files, and to save them.
Encrypted Favorite Export
You can now choose to encrypt the password when exporting favorites.
Improved Undo in SQL Terminal
Executing a query in SQL Terminal no longer clears the undo buffer. This makes it much more convenient to fiddle with complex queries.
Fixed UI Glitches in Terminal
I have improved the layout code to avoid frequent jitters during scrolling. Also, Mavericks responsive scrolling is now disabled because it doesn't work with nested table views.
Authenticated Update Checks
When checking for updates, PG Commander now uses an SSL connection to ensure updates are only published by Egger Apps.
August 21, 2013
PG Commander – Version 1.0.0
- Documentation PG Commander now includes documentation for the most important features.
- Context Menu Right clicking on items in the sidebar now brings up a context menu that allows you to quickly open them in a new window.
July 16, 2013
PG Commander Beta 6 – Version 0.9.6
- Nicknames Favorites in PG Commander can now have nicknames! This allows you to distinguish between multiple databases on the same host. It's also great when your database has a cryptic hostname (like on AWS).
- Automatic Update Checking PG Commander now automatically checks for updates, and shows a subtle notification in the favorites window when a new version is available for download. You can disable automatic update checking in the preferences.
- Connect to high ports A bug in PG Commander made it impossible to connect to port numbers higher than 32767. This is now fixed. (I had mixed up signed and unsigned integers)
- Favorites Window In the wake of adding nicknames and update notifications, I tweaked the design of the favorites window.
June 29, 2013

PG Commander Beta 4
This beta fixes an issue where tables could not be viewed when connecting to PostgreSQL 9.0 and earlier.
June 12, 2013
PG Commander Beta 3
I decided to change the name from PG Terminal to PG Commander. I think it fits much better. Besides the name change, this release brings other exciting new things:
- Awesome icon designed by Dave Brasgalla from the Iconfactory.
- Editing Tables with Foreign Keys: When a field has a foreign key constraint, PG Commander now shows the row from the foreign table. You can also directly pick a row from the foreign table from a popover. You can even quickly add a new row to the foreign table!
- There is now a preference setting for the number of rows loaded per page in the table view (default 1000).
- I started with writing the documentation. The first section is “Connecting to a PostgreSQL Server”.
April 18, 2013
PG Terminal Beta 2
In this version I made some improvements to the sidebar:
- Only the current database appears in the sidebar by default. There is now a button to show all databases. This improves usability when connecting to a server with many databases.
- Errors when loading items in the sidebar are now properly reported.
- You can now reload the sidebar (eg. to make newly created tables show up)
PG Terminal Beta 1
Initial public version.
