Dear MySQL users,

The MySQL developer tools team announces the 6.3.1 beta as our first
release for MySQL Workbench 6.3. This release contains a number of new
and enhanced features which are feature complete but might still contain
bugs. So use them with care.

Changes in MySQL Workbench 6.3.1 (2015-03-05 , Beta)

   For detailed information about the new features, see What's
   New in MySQL Workbench 6.3

    * This release contains the same bug fixes as the recently released
    6.2.5 package.

    * Fabric 1.5 is now supported. Older versions of Fabric are no longer
    supported due to incompatible protocol changes.

    * The MySQL Workbench architecture for OS X changed to 64bit. There will
    no longer be 32bit versions of it.  With this step MySQL Workbench's
    64bit support is now complete. Only for Windows there is still a 32bit
    build yet, but users are encouraged to use the 64bit build. 32bit
    support will be deprecated in a future version of MySQL Workbench.

    * A new table data import/export wizard was added. This feature enhances
    the current CSV import and export feature found in the SQL editor's
    result set viewer. It supports import and export of CSV and JSON files,
    and allows a more flexible configuration (separators, column selection,
    encoding selection, and more). This new wizard does not require an
    executed statement on a table for a result set to be operated on, as it
    can now work directly on tables.

    * A new "fast migration" option was added to the migration wizard. This
    is another way to transfer data from one MySQL server to another while
    performing a migration, and it complements the existing solutions. The
    premise is to use a generated script on the source server to create a
    dump that you move to the target machine to perform the import there.
    This avoids the need to traffic all data through MySQL Workbench, or to
    have a permanent network connection between the servers. Instead, the
    dump and restore is performed at maximum speed by using the LOAD DATA
    call for the MySQL import. The migration wizard automatically creates
    all necessary scripts for all supported platforms and servers. It
    creates a self-contained Zip file that must be copied to the target
    server. You unzip it and execute the provided script to perform the data

    * Code completion support was improved. Code suggestions are more
    precise and work with additional statement types, when before only
    SELECT statements were fully supported. Additional database features are
    also supported including table engines, log file groups, table spaces,
    character sets, and more.

    * A new SSL certificate generation wizard was added. This new wizard
    helps create proper SSL certificates for both MySQL clients and MySQL
    servers.  Connections in MySQL Workbench are updated with the
    certificates by the wizard. This wizard requires OpenSSL to create the

    * Platforms support changes: Fedora 21 and Ubuntu 14.10 support was
    added, while Ubuntu 12.10 support was dropped.
