Version 1.6 of Core Data Lab features a Xcode 12 style toolbar and full-height sidebar when using macOS 11, support for opening SQLite databases, and a few other improvements and fixes.
We have done some compatibility improvements with macOS 11 in previous updates of Core Data Lab, but none of them seriously adopted any Big Sur design change. We have started the style adoption process with the most important part of the app, the main document window.
When using macOS 11, the toolbar layout is divided in split panels, nearly all button icons are based on SF Symbols, and the sidebar uses the full height of the window. Background of the status panel, and the hovering effect of the path button have been tuned too. When using older macOS version, the toolbar and sidebar look the same as the previous version.
We will update other parts of the app, like the Welcome window and Preferences panel, to adopt Big Sur style changes. We're also busy with new Big Sur style app and document icons.
This update contains the following new features:
