Dear MySQL users,

The MySQL developer tools team at Oracle is excited to announce the
availability of MySQL Workbench 6.0.9.

MySQL Workbench 6.0 is the GUI Development and Administration tool
for MySQL.

Changes in MySQL Workbench 6.0.9 (2014-02-05)

This section documents all changes and bug fixes applied to MySQL
Workbench since the release of 6.0.8.

Functionality Added or Changed

  * The restore operation can restore to a different schema. (Bug
    #11759068, Bug #51351)

Bugs Fixed

  * MySQL Workbench now builds on Debian 7.0-unstable. (Bug
    #18041235, Bug #71156)

  * Ubuntu 13.10 is now supported. (Bug #18042416, Bug #71281)

   * Fedora 20 is now supported

  * On Linux, the Cancel button was written as "Cance" on some
    systems, depending on the GTK theme used on the system. (Bug
    #18042862, Bug #71106)

  * Sometimes, when exporting an EER diagram to SQL, the generated
    SQL code did not include "DROP SCHEMA" statements even with
    the Generate DROP SCHEMA option checked. (Bug #18054932, Bug

  * One tab could execute the query from a different tab, after
    swapping tabs. (Bug #17903147, Bug #71029)

  * On Linux, building MySQL Workbench from source would generate
    many glib related warnings with newer versions of glib. (Bug
    #17813170, Bug #70932)

  * After creating a new view inside a model, clicking Add View
    would display a new view in the editor this new could not be
    saved. (Bug #17796027, Bug #70904)

  * The --routines command line option was missing from the
    generated mysqldump command when multiple schemas were
    selected for a dump into a single file backup when the
    routines option was enabled. This could happen after executing
    the dump multiple times. (Bug #17795551, Bug #70896)

  * Executing Model, Forward Engineering with the Do not create
    users, only export privileges option enabled would recreate
    the user instead of simply changing privileges for the
    existing user. (Bug #17794653, Bug #70903)

  * On Linux, renaming foreign keys and indexes would crash MySQL
    Workbench. (Bug #17841664, Bug #70977)

  * On Mac OS X, switching colors with layers and tables several
    times could eventually cause a crash. (Bug #17758312, Bug

  * Adding a new table to an empty EER diagram would crash MySQL
    Workbench. (Bug #17775383, Bug #70872)

  * When building from source and without building the
    documentation, the documentation link will open the online
    MySQL Workbench manual. (Bug #17788936, Bug #70873)

  * The Inserts tab under Forward Engineering would sometimes
    unexpectedly fail. (Bug #17698069, Bug #70747)

  * The ENUM type now corresponds better to its definition better
    under Model, User Defined Types, to allow arguments. (Bug
    #17633506, Bug #70671)

  * On Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X, the bundled PyCrypto
    library was upgraded to version 2.6.1. (Bug #17615430)

  * MySQL Workbench could crash when using a MySQL connection that
    connects via an SSH tunnel with success, but is defined using
    incorrect MySQL server credentials. A dialog now requests the
    correct information. (Bug #17456433, Bug #70332)

  * The catalog treeview for an EER diagram was replaced by a
    central control with improved handling, which allows MySQL
    Workbench to worth more smoothly with a large number of
    tables. (Bug #17370413, Bug #69692)

  * Indexes that were auto-created for a Foreign Key can now be
    deleted in case another suitable index was available. (Bug
    #17275827, Bug #69937)

  * Under certain scenarios, the File, Print to File... action
    would not allow models to be unchecked. (Bug #17300434)

  * Model synchronization would complete, but if repeated then
    MySQL Workbench would ask to update the database again. (Bug
    #17033354, Bug #69591)

  * Changing the collation type would not always be detected, as
    "No changes detected" would be reported after attempting to
    apply the change. (Bug #16492371, Bug #68672)

  * The MySQL Forums link on the MySQL Workbench home page was
    updated, and it now links to a MySQL Workbench page that also
    links to the MySQL Workbench - Database Migration forum, when
    before it was difficult to find. (Bug #14773380, Bug #67272)

  * From Database, Reverse Engineer, and after selecting a schema
    with multiple tables, clicking the left or right arrow buttons
    with the Show Filter feature to include/exclude tables would
    lose the cursor position, and always move the cursor to the
    top of the list. (Bug #14017237, Bug #65018)

  * For models, tables can now be renamed by double-clicking the
    name column, and the columns edited. (Bug #13702831, Bug

  * A large SQL script file could not be saved for a model,
    although a limit of around 200MB limit still exists. (Bug

  * MySQL Workbench could crash after choosing Recover when
    prompted to recover a model file from a previous session after
    MySQL Workbench was not closed properly. (Bug #13051204, Bug

  * Applying an large SQL Script object to a model could crash
    MySQL Workbench. (Bug #13025299)

  * The "Scratch" SQL editor tabs were removed, and instead
    standard SQL editor tabs are always opened. (Bug #11765876,
    Bug #58882)

  * Editing a mandatory relationship now updates the referenced
    column. (Bug #11764011, Bug #56792)
