February News on MySQL Workbench

Posted by mortazavi on March 5, 2009 at 8:21 AM PST

MySQL Workbench, as I noted earlier, has been selected as the #1 database development tool.

Workbench 5.0.3

Our download servers have just been loaded with the latest version of our current GA version of MySQL Workbench 5.0. We managed to close 27 bugs for this release. While 10 were actually fixed in code, we also re-validated many reports in our bug-DB and found 17 bug-reports which could be closed as the reported issue has been fixed in the meantime.

Please hop right to the download page and fetch the new release.

Workbench 5.1.7 Alpha

Last week we had a team meeting, where we could discuss and plan various issues and ideas for current and upcoming versions of our project. But finally it's time to publish new material to show what we were up to in the past weeks. We have our first dual-platform-release of the MySQL Workbench 5.1.7 alpha version. Please note, that in terms of UI linux- and OSX- version aren't yet on the same level of completeness. While we are nearly done having all features onboard for the linux-build, we still have some more checkmarks to fill on the osx checklist - but we are catching up. Nevertheless it's the same codebase - especially the backend-code is the same for all platforms. Some of you ...
