    Migrations for Git (migrations v2) can now be used throughout the delivery lifecycle with the latest versions of the Red Gate SQL tools. SQL Source Control, SQL Compare, SQL CI and Deployment Manager all use migrations v2 scripts if configured to do so.

    NB. We’re still calling the migrations feature a beta feature within the products. This is because we are continuing to release user interface improvements and improve stability, and we do not yet consider the feature complete. However the core products have been through their full testing and release processes and are stable.

    A frequent releases channel for SQL Source Control is now available, and it is this channel that contains the migrations v2 feature. This means you can evaluate the new migrations functionality without having to install a beta version of SQL Source Control, and you will benefit from the regular updates being made to SQL Source Control.

    SQL Compare 10.6 (currently in beta) supports migrations v2 scripts. The migrations v2 feature must be enabled on the options tab. Migrations v2 are enabled by default in SQL CI (part of the SQL Automation Pack) and in Deployment Manager.

    We’d really like to hear about your experiences so we can fix issues and try to make any updates you need before the final release.

    Download links for SQL Source Control and SQL Compare with migrations v2 and, along with instructions on how to enable migrations v2 are on http://www.red-gate.com/migrations

    Please note that if you have previously installed the standalone migrations v2 beta versions of SQL Source Control (version 3.9.x) or SQL Compare (10.9.x) you will need to uninstall these in order to install versions 3.6.×. and 10.6.×.

        RedGate, any update on this since Oct? We would like to move from SVN to GIT but we need full support.

        Very disappointed to find that data migrations are not supported for Git. Hope it will be added soon.

        Hi Stephanie, This is a feature our company is waiting on because we have to move over to GIT but Red Get is not supporting the migration feature. So, the entire process is on hold and we are thinking of alternatives.

        q42jaap, if (and I may be wrong) you are responding to my statement, I didn't mean to suggest that it was a no brainer technically....I have no doubt that it is very difficult, but it should a no brainer in terms of priority for the product. It is a great product, but hard to justify purchasing it for our whole team until it supports this feature.

        It's not that simple as it seems, things like git flow, branches etc make things more difficult. The shared database vs dedicated database further complicates things. Let's be patient!

        I'm also adding a vote for Git Migrations support. Can't buy this without it.

        Our company already use SQL Comparer. But implementing the migration feature for Git ( control system that we are using) will save our time and nervous.

        Any update on the time frame for this? The Mercurial thread is estimating the end of 2012, is this true for Git as well?

        Is there any news on GIT support? It's 7 months since David said they will start investigating it...

        +1 to this is a must-have feature. As a git shop I feel left out of the redgate migration fun. :(
