Announcing cubeSQL 5

March 3rd, 2015 | 3 Comments »

After many months of development we are really happy to announce the immediate availability of cubeSQL version 5. This version represents an important milestone where we fixed all know bugs and we added a lot of important features. I’ll blog more about some of them in the upcoming weeks.

MacOS X installer has been rewritten from scratch using a custom made AppleScript application (its source code is available in the script folder inside the complete package). In this way we can support again MacOS X 10.6 and finally dropped the buggy PackageMaker app previously used for the MacOS X installer.

Due to the massive amount of work done in the SSL stuffs and thanks to the incredible support from Roth Soft AG, cubeSQL has officially been certified by a third party security and penetration testing company like Compass Security AG, specifically from its subsidiary Qualys SSL Labs.
