This section documents all changes and bug fixes applied to MySQL Workbench since the release of MySQL Workbench 5.2.34.

Functionality Added or Changed

  • On Microsoft Windows, the standard (common) keyboard and mouse shortcuts that control zoom were not fully implemented. Usage: Control++ to zoom in, Control+- to zoom out, and Control+/ to reset to 100%. (Bug #57463, Bug #11764608)

  • Usernames and schemas can now be sorted. (Bug #55318, Bug #11762692)

Bugs Fixed

  • The Administrator now allows various authentication plugins (such as Windows Auth, PAM) to create user accounts.

    The dropdown for the authentication method will only be displayed if MySQL Workbench detects that additional authentication plugins are enabled by the server. (Bug #12899893)

  • The unused Start MySQL Utilities Shell for Connection connection menu item was removed. (Bug #12898126)

  • The is_enabled() method was added to the mforms View class. (Bug #62140, Bug #12860149)

  • MySQL Workbench crashed with a segmentation fault after the connection step of a model synchronization. (Bug #61822, Bug #12742008)

  • The MySQL Workbench SE MySQL Bug Reporter linked to instead of (Bug #60364, Bug #11872318)
