This begins development of the 1.4.x branch, and it includes new features and bug fixes since the previous release. It is an internal release.
A task can now be scheduled to automatically update the MySQL product catalog. (Bug #18490792, Bug #72171)
Non-GA products are now supported, as these pre-release versions can be installed and updated using the MySQL Installer. The MySQL product listing displays both GA and non-GA releases, and this listing filter is configurable.
Sometimes the upgrade process would modify the installation path of the MySQL server. (Bug #19268803, Bug #67999)
Executing the installer from CLI would install MySQL for Visual Studio even when Visual Studio was not installed on the system. It now checks for this prerequisite. (Bug #19189529)
The Back and Next buttons did not function properly after the installation failed and Try Again was executed. Only Cancel functioned. (Bug #19189513)
Clicking ? on the dashboard now displays the MySQL Installer version number. (Bug #18329551, Bug #19143184, Bug #73166)
The commercial MySQL server 5.5.36 installation package listed a 5.5.35 option, but not one for 5.5.36. (Bug #18080058)
MySQL server 5.7.2 failed to upgrade to MySQL server 5.7.3. (Bug #17809787)
The MySQL Workbench installation now uses the minor version number in the installation path (e.g., 6.2) instead of the point release number (e.g., 6.2.1). (Bug #17759563)
