This section documents all changes and bug fixes applied to MySQL Workbench since the release of 5.2.46.
Pressing the Delete key with the cursor focus in a column name would remove diagram objects while editing an EER diagram. (Bug #16285264)
Adding indexes to existing tables would sometimes freeze the cursor focus. (Bug #16209869, Bug #68149)
Pressing Delete would delete an object from an EER Model diagram. The correct keyboard shortcut for this operation is Modifier + Delete. Simply pressing Delete will only delete the character to the right of the cursor. (Bug #16185212, Bug #68102)
Arrange, would push model items outside of the page. (Bug #14781895, Bug #67278)
With auto-completion enabled, editing text in the SQL editor for a model could close MySQL Workbench. (Bug #14520292, Bug #66111)
In the inputs tab of the table editor, it was not possible enter values using binary notation, such as b'1' or 0b1, for a value in a BIT field. (Bug #12917990, Bug #61966)
Clicking an EER diagram tab would initially display the Model tab before displaying the EER diagram tab that was clicked. (Bug #12661264, Bug #61473)
The foreign key settings for On Update and On Delete would sometimes be lost after adding a new foreign key. (Bug #11764432, Bug #57263)
Sometimes the comment field was too wide and would flow over the right sidebar. (Bug #11756731, Bug #58684)
The database migration wizard now disables triggers before copying data, by dropping and writing them to a temporary table and then restoring them later. This default behavior can be modified from the command-line by using the
--dont-disable-triggers-optionoption, which prevents this logic from taking effect. Also,
--disable-triggers-on=will remove the triggers for a particular schema and store them into a temporary table, and
--reenable-triggers-on=will fetch the saved triggers from
--disable-triggers-on=and recreate the triggers into the target schema.
The uninstaller would leave leftover MySQL Workbench files on the host. These files are now deleted.
The New Server Instance wizard, in the Server Administration section, was updated to include additional MySQL Server 5.6 specific templates.
