View as plain text  
Dear MySQL Users,

We are proud to announce that we have reached the Beta 1 for MySQL  
Workbench 5.2. Beta 1 is “functionally complete” and shows the new  
features for the upcoming version of Workbench GUI product.

The team has worked very hard to reach the goal of including all our  
new features within this first public beta version. We know there is  
still a lot of fine tuning and stabilization to be done over the  
coming weeks to get it solid on all platforms, but this release marks  
an important milestone.  Your beta feedback is key to this.

MySQL Workbench 5.2 Beta 1 provides:

	1) Data Modeling

	2) Query (upgrade from MySQL Query Browser)

	3) Admin (upgrade from MySQL Administrator)

If you are a current user of MySQL Query Browser or MySQL  
Administrator, we look forward to your feedback on all the new  
capabilities we are delivering in a single unified MySQL Workbench

As always, you will find binaries for the various platforms on our  
download pages.

Please get your copy from our Download

To get started quickly, please take a look at this short tutorial.

Workbench files saved with version 5.2 cannot be opened with previous
