  1. Thanks for the latest update. As ever, it is much appreciated.

    Out of interest, are there any plans to integrate a stored routine debugger at some stage in the future?

    Auto complete (as mentioned by a previous poster) and optional automatic capitalisation of SQL reserved words would also be nice.

  2. Installed on Win Server 2008. Can connect to server admin but cannot connect to SQL Development (locally or remote hosts), always attempts then says connection cancelled.

    Have tried numerous re-installs to no avail.

  3. Annyoing bug in MySQL Workbench 5.2.37 CE.

    It does not create accounts on MySQL with empty passwords.
    As a consequence nobody can login with a empty password.
