MySQL Workbench 5.2.1 Alpha Available

We’re proud to announce the availability of the 2nd alpha-version of MSQL Workbench 5.2. As you may already know, this is the youngest member of the workbench-family and also the version that adds another role – the one of the database-querying-tool – to the application. There have been major enhancements – not only to the querying part – since we released the first alpha version. Please keep in mind that this is still an alpha version and it’s not recommended for use in a production environment. While most parts of the final application are already in place there are still a few things left to implement or details subject to change. Please download the program, take it for a test-drive and tell us what you think.

Source code and binary packages of MySQL Workbench 5.2.1 OSS for Windows, Mac OS X Leopard and some Linux distributions are freely available for download at:
