Another new thing in this RC1 is the ability to easily edit blobs in the database. We've had the save and load from file as well as the ability to show the text of the blob but now we're interrogating the blob to figure out what it is. The code is starting with what should be fairly common file types and we'll expand as we go. There's a new button on the BLOB view dialog named External Editor. When you press this, you may get prompted to go define an editor for this type. Here's what it looks like for XML stored in a BLOB.
Defining the editor is located in the preferences. I'm going to setup VIM as the editor of choice for all *.xml files.
Which is why you'll see a * next to the row indicating that there was a change made and it's awaiting a commit or rollback.
Now editing images,documents,xml stored in the database is greatly simplified.
