MySQL Workbench RC3 Build Done – To Be Released Soon

We have now completed the RC3 build and will test it over the weekend. If we do not find any major issues we will release on Monday. There are a bunch of fixes in this release again. Here are the higlights.

  • Syntax Highlighting activated for all schema object editors
    The syntax highlighter we used for the Lua scripts has proven itself since the last release so we decided to replace the dull standard edit controls
  • Canvas Speed Optimizations
    Alfredo found a stupid bug that was disabling all the caching that he built into the canvas. The speed has improved a lot and there is still room for a lot more
  • Description Palette
    We have now enabled the Description Palette that directly shows the description text associated with the currently selected schema objects. This makes instant documentation of schema objects on the diagram as well as the overview page much simpler

We will add a detailed changelog as usual when we publish the release.

  1. Hope this question is not off-topic here. But I would like to test that RC3 with commercial features added (especially DBDoc). Is there any possibility to do so? Thanks in advance.

  2. Well, we had the SE Beta Tester Program, but that is over now. We are going to put up a number of tutorial videos that show what is possible in SE. Those should give you a good idea if you want to spend the USD 99 and support the project.

  3. I have no problem with spending the USD 99. I would do it now in the RC-State. The community-Edition quality makes me confident enough that this is surely worthwile (as I am desprate for the DBDoc stuff and in a time-constraint). But I cannot 😉

  4. jmersmann, i hope you found the item in the shop now. It seems you are on European time while we launched WB in the afternoon, PST.

    If you still have problems locating it, please let me know.
