  • Database, Synchronize Model would not update the view after a new field was added. (Bug #62569, Bug #13051152)

  • MySQL Workbench would prompt a user for the password to reconnect to a MySQL server that had lost the connection, and this password dialogue would not have focus yet still showed as the top window with a blinking cursor.

  • Scrolling the mouse wheel now only scrolls the focused window. (Bug #61480, Bug #12661387)
