Changes in MySQL Workbench 8.0.16 (2019-04-25, General

      * Functionality Added or Changed

      * Bugs Fixed

Functionality Added or Changed

      * The script editor now highlights matching pairs of
        parentheses when one of the pair is selected. (Bug
        #27473434, Bug #73167)

      * Microsoft Visual Studio support was upgraded from Visual
        Studio 15 to Visual Studio 17.

      * Previously, the output from running schema validation
        plugins on a MySQL model was distributed to
        areas of MySQL Workbench, making portions of the
        information easy to miss. The same functionality now
        shown in a single location and reorganized to
        informational, warning, and error messages by
category. A
        new Validate tab also provides a simple way to
        and rerun validation tests from the output area in
        right side panel (see Schema Validation Plugins

        with an expression in a column of type BINARY was

        convention to highlight and indent the words
        keywords by MySQL. (Bug #29251184, Bug #94012)
