      * Functionality Added or Changed

      * Bugs Fixed

Functionality Added or Changed

      * The following new functions were added to the Workbench
        GRT module:

           + activateDiagram(<Diagram>)
             Opens the selected EER diagram for use with the
             exportPNG, exportSVG, exportPS, and exportPDF

           + exportDiagramToPng(<Diagram>, <path>)
             Performs a PNG export of an EER diagram to the path
             provided without activating it.
        (Bug #28853802, Bug #92985)

      * MySQL Workbench now supports macOS 10.14 Mojave,
        including full compatibility with the Dark Mode color
        scheme. (Bug #28831956, Bug #92902)

      * The Adv. Find tab operation that searched an open EER
        diagram by database objects only was removed.
        (Bug #28740047)

      * All editions of MySQL Workbench and the bundled libraries
        were upgraded to use OpenSSL 1.0.2q. (Bug #28695759)

      * Keyboard access was added to the home screen tab to
        enable navigation using the Tab and Enter keys. In
        addition, the screen view now scrolls to display a
        selected item if the item was off-screen when highlighted
        with the Tab key.
        On Windows and Linux hosts, the Application key and
        Ctrl+F10 now open a menu of commands (context menu)
        related to the selection.

      * Two redundant features were removed from all platforms:

           + The connection information pop-up sheet on the home
             screen tab
             Instead, open Manage Connections from the Database
             menu (or Edit Connection from the context menu of
             each connection) to view connection details.

           + The merge icon (two arrows pointing at each other)
             located in the Navigation area of the side panel
             Content from the Administration and Schemas tabs
             were merged or split when this icon was toggled.
             Now, the administration section links and schema
             tree appear in separate tabs only.

Bugs Fixed

      * Valid decimal data within a Microsoft SQL Server table
        generated an error when used with the MySQL Workbench
        Migration Wizard. (Bug #28962023, Bug #93293)

      * The InnoDB status shown within the Administration -
        Dashboard tab displayed the wrong usage percent.
        (Bug #28919419)

      * A conflicting dependency was removed that prevented the
        mysql-connector-c++-devel package installation when MySQL
        Workbench was installed first. (Bug #28915929,
        Bug #93172)

      * The on-screen process of editing a stored procedure did
        not prompt to save the changes. (Bug #28880743,
        Bug #93068)

      * A new table added to an existing model caused MySQL
        Workbench to stop working. (Bug #28879925, Bug #93067)

      * The alter-table operation when applied to partitioned
        tables on Windows caused MySQL Workbench to stop working.
        (Bug #28856542, Bug #92990)

      * Characters from Cyrillic character sets when included in
        the path to SSH key files caused valid connection
        attempts to fail without producing a clear error message.
        These characters now are permitted within the path.
        (Bug #28814329, Bug #92847)

      * Connections made to a remote MySQL server over SSH did
        not recover properly after the network was interrupted
        temporarily. (Bug #28806660, Bug #90884)

      * New accounts created to use standard authentication were
        instead created to require strong password encryption
        when the default_authentication_plugin server system
        variable was configured with the caching_sha2_password
        value. (Bug #28777856, Bug #92740)

      * The default user name, newuser, was not accepted when it
        was used to create a new account. (Bug #28776902,
        Bug #92738)

      * The operation to migrate a Microsoft SQL Server schema
        produced an error when it encountered problematic tables
        during the reverse-engineering step. (Bug #28747888,
        Bug #92659)

      * A table editor tab that was opened by clicking the table
        icon from within the sidebar (Schemas tab) displayed the
        correct SELECT * FROM query and results, but the query
        text did not line up along the left margin as expected.
        (Bug #28730407)

      * Context-menu actions (New Tab, Save Tab, or Copy Path to
        Clipboard) when applied to an open SQL editor tab caused
        the tab to close unexpectedly on Linux. (Bug #28721377)

      * The color used to highlight a query in the SQL editor was
        the same color used for the text, which made the selected
        query appear to be missing when it was highlighted.
        (Bug #28691256, Bug #92535, Bug #28715080)

      * The Report a Bug action from the Help menu returned an
        error instead of opening the MySQL bug database on macOS
        systems. (Bug #28612380, Bug #92327)

      * The last file selected from a previous directory during
        any browse operation was carried over after navigating to
        a new directory and without selecting a new file from the
        directory. Files now must be selected explicitly within
        the browse dialog box. (Bug #28608962, Bug #92104)

      * Some columns within a Microsoft SQL Server database table
        were not migrated as expected. The operation returned an
        error when copying mixed data types. (Bug #27838190,
        Bug #84777)

      * Multiple SQL queries executed sequentially in separate
        tabs did not resolve as expected on Windows. The first
        query ran to completion, but the tab would not close. The
        second query never finished. Thereafter, no additional
        queries could run and the program would not exit.
        (Bug #25965655, Bug #86090)

      * The Migration Wizard was unable to retrieve a schema list
        from source when the source RDBMS was Microsoft SQL
        Server and a valid FreeTDS driver (required by Linux) was
        provided. (Bug #25457611)

      * No context help was displayed with a view or stored
        procedure in the SQL editor. (Bug #24697574)
