DbVisualizer 24.2 new UI


I'm using DbVisualizer for quite some years and saw several UI changes. This time the changes to the toolbar are really boring. 

In the past it took me one click to open a new SQL commander window. Now I have to click on a button and then select from a menu. I appreciate to save space in a very crowded toolbar, but here the number of buttons was reduced from 10 to 9 and the functions combined at the + button don't really have much in common (SQL Commander, Connections and Workspace). 

On the other side there is still a button to open a file and a button to open a file quickly. In the file menu there is a third option to open recent files. All these things are really inconsistent. 

I would be really great to get back the button to create a new SQL commander window. 

There is also no need to save some space in the toolbar. This is how it looks on my side: 


Maybe it may make more sense to group buttons more visible. 

Best regards

Thanks for taking the time to report this!
