A "passive" parameter was added to the Installer command-line.
The "passive" option won't perform a complete install unless configuration options are used. For example, executing the following will not configure the MySQL server instance, nor will it create the MySQL service:
msiexec /i mysql-installer-community-126.96.36.199.msi /passive CONSOLEARGS="install -type=Full -silent"
Passing in configuration options to CONSOLEARGS is recommended, for example:
msiexec /i mysql-installer-community-188.8.131.52.msi /passive CONSOLEARGS="install server;5.6.27;x64:*:type=config;openfirewall=true; generallog=true;binlog=true;serverid=1;enable_tcpip=true;port=3306; rootpasswd=secret:type=user;username=root;password=secret;role=DBManager -silent"

The launcher path is now normalized, and extra slashes are removed from the path. (Bug #21685236, Bug #78193)
Several typos and grammatical errors were fixed in the GUI. (Bug #21675183, Bug #21842115, Bug #21503353, Bug #21645361, Bug #78169)
The Accounts and Roles step of the Reconfigure procedure could halt and emit an unhandled exception. This could happen if the initial configuration of MySQL Server was terminated, or otherwise incomplete. (Bug #21648604, Bug #77674)
Upgrading the installer would fail if the user folder (%USERPROFILE%) contained spaces. The full file path is now enclosed in double quotes. (Bug #21574660, Bug #77965)
When the Installer checked for currently installed MySQL products, having a
my.iniwithout a [mysql] section could cause the check to fail and halt the Installer. (Bug #19996084)
MySQL Installer would sometimes fail to check for MySQL Workbench dependencies. (Bug #19676056)
