MySQL Workbench 5.1 Reaches RC Quality

We are proud to announce the release our first Release Candidate of Workbench 5.1. After publishing another alpha version of Workbench 5.2 (the version that will include querying and administration) we have concentrated on getting 5.1 closer to GA. We have fixed 45 bugs since our last beta release and the last tweaks planned for the final product are in place now.

We are now tightening our release circle while moving closer to the planned GA date of the 5.1 version. We will release two additional Release Candidates at the end of upcoming two weeks and plan to complete the final GA build by the end of June – on all our major platforms.

Please head over to our Download page to get the new release and give it a try:
