View as plain text  
Dear MySQL Users,

The MySQL Workbench Team is proud to announce Beta 8 (5.2.18).
Since beta 7 we have fixed additional bugs as well as put in some improvements requested
by the community so we decided to pack up another release for you to check out.

This Beta includes fixes for 35 bugs (P1 - 1, P2 - 10 , P3 - 24)

Also we have added new HUD-style (FADE IN) UI elements to show wait-times while WB is
setting up connections (currentlz windows only, will be added to linux/mac in next

Additionally we have added Connection Sorting, now you can go to the connection manager
and sort using up/down buttons.

For more on these new features check out

A big "thank you" to all the people who have been testing MySQL Workbench 5.2 alphas and
betas and taking the time to file bugs and provide valuable feedback. We have fixed many
bugs since last release and worked on some other details as well.
MySQL Workbench 5.2 Beta 5 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

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