What’s new in ApexSQL Developer: ApexSQL Doc for MySQL

We are proud to announce that ApexSQL Doc for MySQL is released. The new MySQL database documentation tool gives database developers the possibility to document multiple MySQL databases at the same time as well as the possibility of choosing which database options and database objects should be included in the documentation.

Thr tool possesses the ability to generate documentation in five very popular file formats, such as CHM, HTML, DOC, DOCX, MARKDOWN, or PDF and customize a look of every single one of them.

Working in a high 4k resolution with Light, Blue and Dark theme makes the tool more enjoyable to work with.

In the following screenshots below some of the main features will be present.
