Changes in MySQL Workbench 6.3.10 (2017-11-15)
Bugs Fixed

* Performance information within the Administration –
Dashboard tab demonstrated a slow rate of refresh on
hosts running macOS High Sierra. (Bug #26921498)

* Tooltips within the Administration – Dashboard tab did
not display when the mouse pointer was paused over each
performance graph and the host was running macOS High
Sierra. (Bug #26921467)

* Table objects did not display with the Show Selection
button during the migration process on hosts running
macOS High Sierra. As a result, source objects could not
be selected for inclusion or exclusion. (Bug #26921431)

* Queries executed with the Limit Rows value set to “Don’t
Limit” did not display rows in the result grid on hosts
running macOS High Sierra. (Bug #26921372)

* Executing a query in MySQL Workbench on a host running
macOS High Sierra failed to load the result grid
completely, which prevented result data from appearing
within the Result Grid tab. (Bug #26826418, Bug #87714)

* Performing a keyword search in the EER Diagram Editor on
hosts running macOS High Sierra caused MySQL Workbench to
exit unexpectedly. (Bug #26428849, Bug #87020)

* Forward engineering a physical database design did not
operate as expected on hosts running macOS High Sierra.
(Bug #25979928, Bug #86146)

Paramiko 2.x Update Tutorial

MySQL Workbench has tunneling capabilities, and these
depend on third-party libraries.

One required library is Paramiko, which is a python module used to 
create an SSH connection to the destination server. MySQL Workbench uses
Paramiko 1.8.x, and 1.8.x depends on the pycrypto library. But
because recent Python distributions replaced pycrypto with a
different cryptography module, this causes problems for software
(like Workbench) that depends on the older (1.8.x) Paramiko library, 
problems such as MySQL BUG#87381 (http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=87381).

For details on upgrading the Paramiko library, see our previous blog post
titled
Paramiko Update Tutorial
. The procedure to upgrade to
Paramiko 2.x is the same as described in the tutorial, except 2.x 
requires these additional dependencies: cryptography, bcrypt, and nacl.
These should also be placed next to the paramiko folder as described 
in that tutorial.

We hope this helps!

Universal Code Completion using ANTLR

While reworking our initial code completion implementation in MySQL Workbench I developed an approach that can potentially be applied for many different situations/languages where you need code completion. The current implementation is made for the needs of MySQL Workbench, but with some small refactorings you can move out the MySQL specific parts and have a clean core implementation that you can easily customize to your needs.

Since this implementation is not only bound to MySQL Workbench I posted the full description on my private blog.

Parsing in MySQL Workbench: the ANTLR age

Some years ago I posted an article about the code size in the MySQL Workbench project and talked a bit about the different subprojects and modules. At that time the project consisted of ~400K LOC (including third-party code) and already then the parser was the second biggest part with nearly a forth of the size of the entire project. This parser project back then used the yacc grammar from the MySQL server codebase and was our base for all parsing tasks in the product. Well, things have changed a lot since these days and this blog post discusses the current parsing infrastructure in MySQL Workbench.
