  1. sorry for the delay on the SE files, we are facing some problems with our publishing system – we’re currently fixing this

  2. Problems with the download-system for SE versions are fixed, files are finally available.
    sorry again for the inconvenience.

  3. It doesn`t work for me. I don`t know why but after login I can download only 5.1.16SE. 5.1.17SE is nowhere availble for me.

    Any clues?

  4. Very good tool for editing and creating MySQL database, but whataheck is wrong with routine redactor?? it’1 keep hoping to random places, re-ordering procedures and such mess. Im using MS Vista Houme Premium SP2 with all upodates, 5.0.67 database version and 5.1.11 client.

  5. Carlos: what version was it saved on? Can you report a bug?

    user: Please try 5.1.17

  6. Mike: were you able to download 5.1.17SE? Is the problem that you click on the 5.1.17 download link and it fails? Or does it simply not list 5.1.17 for you? Have you tried forcing a reload of the page or something?

  7. I am an SE customer and bug #46875 (does not export foreign keys) essentially makes this release DOA. V16 suffered from INSERTs not being exported. How long before release 18 comes out, or how do I get access to bug fixes to 17 to make this release stable????

  8. Right – I know it has been fixed, hence my question. What is the time frame for release 18? Are there patches available for SE customers to fix this issue in the interim? I am running Workbench on XP.
