Dear MySQL Users,

Announcing a new beta 10 release of MySQL Workbench.
Version 5.2.20 includes new fixes for 49 bugs (P1 - 1, P2 - 7 , P3 - 39, P4 - 2)

A few new tips you might try. Some have been in the last 2 betas - but in case you haven't
1) Once connected in SQL Editor - type control-T or command-T to add a new editor Tab

2) In the SQL Editor run a select. Highlight a cell (one with an image blob preferably)
and right click (or command click) and select "Open Value in Viewer" or another option.

3) In a results set -- select multiple rows -- right click and "copy row content"

4) Click on snippets. Click on the selector and look at DDL and DML lists.

5) Add your own snippets selection drop down option by creating an empty file in the
snippets folder and re-opening Workbench.
For example on Windows ...
C:\Documents and Settings\<your login>\Application Data\MySQL\Workbench\snippets
called MyCode.txt
Want to include your code.  No space -- for label - single space for code. Look at ours
for an example.

MySQL Workbench 5.2 Beta 10 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.
