MySQL Workbench 5.1 Reaches GA

We’re proud to announce the first General Availability build of our database development tool MySQL Workbench. Version 5.1.16 is now available on our download-servers. On our final run towards GA release of version 5.1 we managed to close 13 bugs and a couple of small issues still found in our previous release. Details on latest changes can be found on our Releases Page. Starting with this release, we recommend to switch from your Workbench 5.0 installation right to the new release (if you haven’t yet) – 5.1 is now our current stable release.

The files for different platforms have been pushed to our main server and will be globally available on our mirrors during the next hours. Please get your copy form our Download page:

If you encounter any problems, please report them to our bugtracker. Feel free to contact us any time on IRC (, #workbench) for any questions or infos.
