Subject:ANNC: MySQL Workbench 1.0.5 beta released
View as plain text  
MySQL Workbench 1.0.5 beta has been released.

MySQL Workbench is a database design tool for MySQL.
MySQL objects such as tables, routines and views can be created and edited and 
their visual representation on the canvas enables one to
quickly understand and work efficiently with complex and simple database 
schemas.


Feature highlights:
- Reverse engineering of existing MySQL databases
- Import DBDesigner4 models
- Synchronize edited model with MySQL database
- Generate SQL create script file
- Printing (Windows)
- Powrefull scripting and plugin interface. Plugins can be written in several 
languages, such as Lua, PHP, Java and Python.
- Fast, OpenGL based graphical canvas
- Quickly accessible "Overview" mode, which zooms out the whole canvas to 
reveal a more general view.

An OpenGL capable video card with at least 32MB of memory is needed to use 
MySQL Workbench.
