Changes in MySQL Workbench 8.0.13 (2018-10-22, General Availability)

      * Server Support

      * Functionality Added or Changed

      * Bugs Fixed

Server Support

      * Support for MySQL 5.5 by MySQL Workbench 8.0 was removed.
        If you still need to use MySQL Workbench on a MySQL 5.5
        server, you can use MySQL Workbench 6.3, which is
        available from MySQL Product Archives (see

Functionality Added or Changed

      * MySQL Workbench on macOS 10.14 Mojave was tested with
        positive results. The new Dark Mode feature is not yet
        compatible with all screens and should not be enabled for
        this release.

Bugs Fixed

      * With valid geometry points inserted, the option to open
        the points in a browser failed on macOS hosts because the
        URL was improperly formed. (Bug #28587193, Bug #92266)

      * An apostrophe character (') within a table comment
        generated a parsing error when an attempt was made to
        alter the table. (Bug #28552873, Bug #92191)

      * Insufficient privilege was granted during the attempt to
        create a new MySQL Enterprise Backup user account.
        Although valid prerequisite backup information was
        provided, the validation script returned the following
        error message: Access denied for backup account.
        (Bug #28536272, Bug #92115)

      * When remote management with SSH was enabled, attempting
        to insert the required passwords in the Options file
        produced an error message. After the error was closed,
        the Administration tab became unresponsive and MySQL
        Workbench did not shut down properly. (Bug #28519087,
        Bug #92061)

      * An error with the following message was generated when
        the export operation was executed on tables from an
        earlier server version: Unknown table 'COLUMN_STATISTICS'
        in information_schema (1109).
        Because the version of mysqldump used with the operation
        can differ from that of the target server, some features
        may not be exported as expected when the versions are
        mismatched. A warning message now provides a description
        of the condition, along with instructions to resolve the
        version mismatch, or the option to continue anyway.
        (Bug #28471433, Bug #91640)

      * On Windows hosts, the history of scheduled MySQL
        Enterprise Backup jobs was not persisted in the dashboard
        between MySQL Workbench sessions. This fix eliminates the
        issue; however, the existing mysqlwbmeb.vbs file must be
        removed before scheduling new backup jobs.
        (Bug #28430457)

      * The default target version of MySQL to use with MySQL
        Workbench models was set to MySQL 5.6.30 and did not
        increment automatically. With this fix, the value now
        defaults to the latest version. The default target
        version can also be set manually (see Preferences:
        Modeling: MySQL
        (Bug #28397515, Bug #91782)

      * Executing queries over an period of time caused the
        existing result grid in each query tab to be hidden when
        the grid was previously visible and prevented the results
        grid in new tabs from showing. (Bug #28361489,
        Bug #91265)

      * After copying a query into a second query editor,
        auto-completion did not display the related column names.
        Instead, when auto-completion was engaged, MySQL
        Workbench stopped working. (Bug #28312867, Bug #91559)

      * The operation to compare schemas did not appear in the
        menu after a valid model was opened on Linux hosts.
        (Bug #28249454)

      * The filter arrows that select objects for forward or
        reverse engineering within wizards generated an error
        instead of moving the objects as expected.
        (Bug #26435349, Bug #26922638, Bug #87980, Bug #25921645,
        Bug #86013, Bug #25852505, Bug #85837, Bug #25741519,
        Bug #85522)

      * Schema privileges in the Administration - Users and
        Privileges tab (Object Rights, DDL Rights, and Other
        Rights) were not visible with all screen resolutions.
        (Bug #25584920, Bug #85079)

      * The color used to highlight a selected item in the schema
        tree view did not provide enough contrast from the
        background color to distinguish it from the other items
        easily. The new highlight color makes it easy to see
        which item is selected. (Bug #25456216)
