  • improved model Synchronization, lets you compare and update your EER model or database with ALTER scripts and properly handle corner cases involving objects renamed externally or sync schemas with different names
  • improved support for model printing to PDF files
  • all new Schema Inspector, gives you a detailed overview of all objects in your schemas, plus access to table maintenance operations such as ANALYZE and OPTIMIZE TABLE
  • table data search, lets you perform a text search on any number of tables and schemas for rows matching a given pattern
  • improved Server Status page, gives a quick summary of server status and configuration
  • cascaded DELETE statement generator, automatically performs the tedious task of generating DELETE statements for deleting a row referenced by foreign keys

  2. OS X 10.8.4 / Workbench 6.0.7 instantly crashes / force closes with the following message:

    MySQLWorkbench cannot be opened because of a problem.

    Check with the developer to make sure MySQLWorkbench works with this version of OS X. You may need to reinstall the application. Be sure to install any available updates for the application and OS X.

    I was really hoping this release resolved the consistent crashing that Workbench 6.0.6 has on OS X, and unfortunately it crashes before I can even open the program to find out :(

  3. Crash on startup:

    My old version (5.1) works fine, but v6.0.7 keeps crashing on startup. I got this message:

    Library not loaded: @executable_path/../Frameworks/libmysqlclient.18.dylib

  4. How do you set up schema object permissions in version 6 (not global schema permissions, but setting them on specific tables)? In MySQL Administrator there was a checkbox to enable this option, but I can’t find it in workbench.
