MySQL Workbench 6.2.2 RC has been released

Dear MySQL Users,

The MySQL developer tools team announces 6.2.2 RC – the final release
candidate for MySQL Workbench 6.2.

MySQL Workbench 6.2 is the upcoming major update for the official MySQL
graphical development tool .

MySQL Workbench 6.2 focuses on support for innovations released in MySQL
5.6 and MySQL 5.7 DMR (Development Release) as well as MySQL Fabric 1.5,
with features such as:

  • A new spatial data viewer, allowing graphical views of result sets
    containing GEOMETRY data and taking advantage of the new GIS
    capabilities in MySQL 5.7.
  • Support for new MySQL 5.7.4 SQL syntax and configuration options.
  • Metadata Locks View shows the locks connections are blocked or waiting
    on.
  • MySQL Fabric cluster connectivity – Browsing, view status, and connect
    to any MySQL instance in a Fabric Cluster.
  • MS Access migration Wizard – easily move to MySQL Databases.

Other significant usability improvements were made, aiming to raise
productivity for advanced and new users:

  • Direct shortcut buttons to commonly used features in the schema tree.
  • Improved results handling. Columns have better auto-sizing and their
    widths are saved. Fonts can also be customized. Results “pinned” to
    persist viewing data.
  • A convenient Run SQL Script command to directly execute SQL scripts,
    without loading them first.
  • Database Modeling has been updated to allow changes to the formatting
    of note objects and attached SQL scripts can now be included in forward
    engineering and synchronization scripts.
  • Integrated Visual Explain within the result set panel.
  • Visual Explain drill down for large to very large explain plans.
  • Shared SQL snippets in the SQL Editor, allowing multiple users to
    share SQL code by storing it within a MySQL instance.

  • And much more.

  • Windows 7 32 and 64bits
  • Mac OS X Lion or newer

  1. I downloaded 6.2.2 Mac OS X twice, and both times my computer told me the application was damaged. 6.2.1 works fine.

  2. Can you see if changing the “Allow apps downloaded from:” setting from “System Preferences” to “Anywhere” helps?

  3. 6.2.x Ubuntu 14.04 64bit crashes on “Delete row” operation

    Backtrace:
    /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libglib-2.0.so.0(g_rec_mutex_unlock+0x0)[0x7f1abf5e7a80]
    /usr/bin/mysql-workbench-bin(_ZN4base8RecMutex6unlockEv+0x20)[0x64bcae]
    /usr/lib/mysql-workbench/libwbprivate.so.6.2.2(_ZN4base12RecMutexLockD1Ev+0x27)[0x7f1ac36bf253]

  4. Thanks akojima, that fixed it. Also, after launching successfully, I returned to my original setting, and it still opened ok.
