MySQL Workbench Wins Top 10 Placing

Jack Wallen from TechRepublic put together a Top-10 list of his favorite cross-platform applications. It is humbling to find MySQL Workbench in the company of such popular products like FireFox, Chrome, and Open Office.

Find his full list of applications here.

We can learn a lot from the other app in that list, e.g. we also want to be like FireFox in building a big set of community developed plugins. That is the reason we designed MySQL Workbench in a modular way and made it fully scriptable.

We are currently in the process of updating the documentation of how to write plugins and the scripting API. Watch out for more posts on this topic soon.
