Is it correct that premium features are locked now?


This was unfortunate result of us testing these features. We will send out a new release tonight that is unlocked again. Sorry for the inconvenience.
No problem, I was just a little surprised... ;-)


By the way, the small locks on the icons in the navigation pane are great - it would be even better, if there would also be locks in the menus (though I don't know if this is possible at all...).

We have created a new build now and have updated this post to link to this release.

the locks are gone but database stays empty. When I switch to Mysql it says: database still still active. Try to go back to compact it says: database is still active too. So I can't access my data.



This is a side-effect of the previous build.

Try this:

1) Create a new Sql Compact DB, wait for restart

2) Change to your MySql database.

Hope this helps.

Ok, creating a new database helped to switch back to the old one! Thanks.
