This section documents all changes and bug fixes applied since the release of 5.2.28.
Functionality Added or Changed
Autosave feature was added.
(Bug #50044, Bug #11757926)
An open model that has not been saved is now automatically saved after a user-settable period. On loading a model file, MySQL Workbench will notify the user if the file was not previously saved correctly, due to a crash or power failure. MySQL Workbench can then attempt to recover the last auto-saved version. Note that for automatic recovery to be available for a new file, it will have to have been saved by the user at least once. (Bug #56718)
Security Fix: A security bug was fixed. (Bug #57080)
Scripts could successfully be executed on the MySQL Server failed to execute in the MySQL Workbench SQL Editor. (Bug #56833)
In the Model View, MySQL Workbench crashed when the Output tab was reopened after previously being closed. (Bug #57150)
Screen areas in the Administrator did not redraw correctly. It was necessary to move the main window to force a redraw. (Bug #55490)
If an EER diagram was created and then closed, attempting to reopen it caused MySQL Workbench to display an unexpected error dialog. (Bug #57259)
In the Administrator, clicking the Data
Dump tab generated the error
DB: float division and schemata were not displayed.
In the SQL Editor, if some table data was edited, and then the connection to the server was lost, clicking the Apply changes to data toolbar button caused MySQL Workbench to crash.
Now MySQL Workbench shows an error message in the Output tab when a connection is lost. Once the connection is back up, clicking Apply changes to data re-establishes the connection and sends the changes to the server. (Bug #56170)
If a foreign key was set to
RESTRICT for On
Delete and On Update on the Foreign Keys
tab of the Table Editor, MySQL Workbench generated SQL code to drop
and add this key on every subsequent synchronization attempt.
Clicking the Inserts tab of the Table Editor resulted in the MySQL Workbench Unexpected Error dialog being displayed. (Bug #57346)
Changes made to a server instance were not saved. In particular, changing installation type to “Custom” was not saved, and changes to the sudo command were also not saved. (Bug #57026)
It was only possible to connect to a MySQL server for administration using an SSH connection. (Bug #56874)
Attempting to open the Table Editor in the SQL Editor multiple times for a table that contained no primary key caused MySQL Workbench to crash. (Bug #57139)
In the Alter Table dialog of the SQL Editor, attempting to create a new index in the Index tab was not actioned when the Apply button was clicked. The dialog reported that “no changes to object were detected”. (Bug #56906)
When synchronizing a model to a live database, if a database was
deselected in the wizard, a
for that database was generated in the SQL code to prevent it
from being part of the synchronization process. This caused that
database to be dropped from the live database, with
corresponding loss of all data.
When attempting to open an EER Diagram by double-clicking it in the Model Overview, MySQL Workbench generated this unexpected error:
Cannot access a disposed object. Object Name: ModelDiagramForm.
Folding of iteration statement blocks, such as
LOOP, did not work correctly in the SQL
Editor. The loop end constructs such as
END REPEAT, and
LOOP were not recognized as expected.
If a table containing a User Defined Type based on
VARCHAR was forward engineered, the resulting
SQL did not correctly quote the
value, resulting in a server error. For example, this code was
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `x`.`tabley` (`customstring` VARCHAR(10)); INSERT INTO `x`.`tabley` (`id_customstring`) VALUES (example);
INSERT statement should be:
INSERT INTO `x`.`tabley` (`id_customstring`) VALUES ('example');
