Webyog announced this week that its widely popular product SQLyog - an advanced graphical client for administration of MySQL databases, will be released under the Open Source GPL license. The first Open Source version (version 5.2 Beta) can be downloaded now from the company’s website: www.webyog.com.
Besides the GPL-based Open Source release, Webyog offers an 'Enterprise’ version of the product that includes "Power Tools" for SQLyog - a powerful and unique set of features for MySQL DBAs and developers. The Power Tools include a Migration Toolkit for MySQL, Data and Structure Synchronization Tools, and the ability to efficiently manage MySQL in hosted environments using tunneled connections.
"We are very glad to distribute SQLyog under an Open Source License. This has been made possible due to the enormous support from our users and customers," said Rohit Nadhani, co-founder of Webyog. "We can assure MySQL users that we will continue to do our best to provide them with state-of-the-art tools. The MySQL ecosystem provides us with a perfect framework to do so."
