MySQL Workbench 5.2.31 GA Available

We’re proud to announce the next release of MySQL Workbench, version 5.2.31. This is a maintenance release focusing on general product improvement and usability.

We managed to close 97 bugs for this release.

MySQL Workbench:  Remote Administration on Windows – Support for Windows “Remote” Management within the New Server Instance Wizard and Manage Server Instance Form. This works for servers on the same domain (or trusted) – ie typical Windows LAN environments.  We expect Windows users to prefer this “native” way to do remote admin on Windows.  SSH remote admin has been available for some time on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.

MySQL Workbench:  Utilities Plugin – Starts a shell that contains a set of python scripts that perform basic tasks such as copying, exporting, and importing databases, finding database objects or processes, cloning servers and cloning users.

MySQL Workbench: Scripting shell – Provides python plugin scripters with break points, start, step, pause, and added debug information.

As always, we want to thank everyone for the great feedback we have received. This helps us to continuously improve the functionality and stability of MySQL Workbench – we appreciate all your ideas for improving MySQL Workbench.  Please keep sending us your ideas!

  1. I love this software, but I get frequent lockups while scrolling around EER diagrams (fairly simple ones too). In Windows XP it’s mostly graphical hiccups, while in Ubuntu 10.04 it’s flat out crashes.

    Where are the logfiles?

  2. Seems that Workbench on Windows does not allow multiple instances any more, a feature (or workaround, actually) I used to have multiple Workbench documents open simultaneously.

    Were there any race conditions or other problems for disabling this functionality, or is this a bug ?

  3. This is so sweet!
    I was using WB 5.1.18 on Ubuntu 10.04 (x64) and was so tired of crashings everytime.
    Just installed WB 5.2.31 and I haven’t tested it yet, but by it looks I can say the experience will be less… traumatic.
    Thank you!
