Other improvements and bug fixes that make a difference

MySQL password is remembered for the session, even if not stored in the keychain, so you don’t need to re-enter it when a new connection is needed.

Keyboard shortcuts now work in the Scripting Shell.

Platform Updates

MySQL Workbench 6.2 also finally adds native 64bit support for Windows. This should allow working with larger data sets and script files. Oracle Linux/RHEL 7 support was added. To improve quality and user experience, we will be providing 64-bit binaries for Linux. Linux users who want 32-bit binaries, can compile from source.
