Toad Beta Change Log

Big News:

  • Dark Mode (and several other color schemes) now available. It's under Options -> Color Styles.
  • Fast Shutdown option - close Toad quickly without a bunch of prompts! It's under File -> Fast Shutdown.
  • Toad can now connect to the database with no Oracle client installed! (If you want to try this mode when you actually have a client installed, go to Options -> Oracle -> General and uncheck "Use Oracle Client". Only direct connections are permitted in "no-client" mode).
  • The Oracle client is supported again!
  • The XMLTYPE bug that we've been working around since Toad 10 is finally fixed! (Client version 12.2 and newer, at least)

You'll need to reset toolbars or Right-click -> Customize to manually add the "Fast Shutdown" menu item.

Note: Oracle clients 19c and 21c are not recommended due to memory leaks with LOBs.
