We finally got WB 5.0.12 released. It was a bit complicated to get it out because everybody was on his way to the MySQL All Company Meeting here in Orlando, Fl, and with all the meetings going on. 5.0.12 is a next important step to get closer to RC. We did not fix as many bugs as for the last releases – partly caused by the vacations around X-Mas but as well because the number of serious issues is going down. There is still a lot to be done though but the light at the end of the tunnel is clearly visible already.
Btw., if somebody did not get the news yet (which I don’t think is possible), MySQL has been aquired by Sun. It is the biggest topic here at the All Company Meeting and I think it was the best thing that could happen for MySQL as a product and for the community. What it means for the MySQL Workbench project for the moment is, that nothing will change. We will continue our road to GA as planned and are currently putting together the feature set for the WB 5.1 release. But I think there might be some very good things happening for the community in the future.
