Dear MySQL Users,

We're happy to announce the second Release Candidate (RC) of MySQL Workbench. 
Version 5.2.22 includes fixes for 76 bugs.

In case you didn’t know - MySQL Workbench is a modular product and is fully
pluggable and scriptable. If you want to write a plug-in for Workbench 5.2, then stay
tuned as we will be updating the documentation in the next week with all the details and
examples you need on how to write your own plug-ins.

Plug-ins are great for extending or adding to workbench or for automating repetitive
tasks. You can do things like adding to menus, exporting your Workbench models custom
tailored for your coding environment, adding your own forms, and more. Python is our
preferred scripting language but for simple scripts the Lua language can be used as well.

The first plug-in we added is called MySQL Doc Library. It can be used to read the MySQL
Documentation offline and features many convenient features such as full text search.
Currently, only the MySQL Workbench manual is included, but material and features will be
added over time.

MySQL Workbench 5.2 RC 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.

Please get your copy from our Download

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

Please be aware that this release is still a in-development version – so please
don’t use it on your production servers! Also note, MySQL Workbench files saved with
version 5.2 cannot be opened with previous versions of our program.

The files for several platforms have been pushed to our main server and should be
available on our mirrors.

Blog postings and general information – including build instructions for Linux
