Changes in MySQL Workbench 5.2.42 (2012-08-13)

This section documents all changes and bug fixes applied to MySQL Workbench since the release of MySQL Workbench 5.2.41.

Bugs Fixed

  • There was a typographical error in the "Rename" dialogue that prompts a user to rename unsupported foreign key names that originate from old model files. (Bug #14399185, Bug #66113)

  • The Reformat DDL for Views configuration option would generate invalid SQL syntax if the expression contained an even number of parts that were very long. (Bug #14396953, Bug #66068)

  • The Search on server button would create an additional Search on server button each time it was pressed. (Bug #14395153)

  • After upgrading to MySQL Workbench 5.2.41, MySQL Workbench would freeze if the initial load involved a connection without a saved password. (Bug #14383570, Bug #66016)

  • Data modeling would not allow table edits, and repeated attempts to do so would crash MySQL Workbench. (Bug #14374169, Bug #66013)

  • MySQL Workbench would sometimes crash after populating a model. (Bug #14211444, Bug #65423)

  • On Microsoft Windows XP, the width of the line number column would display a maximum of four characters. It now displays additional characters, such as the number "10000". (Bug #14079497, Bug #65259)

  • Undoing the last four changes via the history tab would only undo the last three changes. (Bug #14026666)

  • Entering the caret ("^") character inside the SQL editor, followed by any other character, could cause MySQL Workbench to hang. This was a Scintilla bug that is now fixed. (Bug #13930994, Bug #64848)

  • On Microsoft Windows, the Enter key would not create newlines within the table column comment dialogue. This was a Scintilla bug that is now fixed. (Bug #13891121, Bug #64714)

  • Synchronizing a model after adding a column to the model would not add the new column to the syncronized database. (Bug #13891063, Bug #63938)

  • On Microsoft Windows, certain conditions would allow the model overview pane to shrink, and only display a small portion of the diagram information. (Bug #13877323, Bug #64640)

  • Models that were temporarily saved as "Unsaved models" could not be deleted. (Bug #13742833)

  • On OS X, attempts to store a password into the keychain could result in an error. (Bug #13387025, Bug #62279)

  • A signal statement in a stored procedure was not supported, and would report a syntax error. (Bug #11763874, Bug #56644)

  • Expanding the tree view for a database with a large number of tables (tested 30,000) would crash MySQL Workbench. (Bug #66036, Bug #14383521)

  • On Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit, MySQL Workbench could freeze. (Bug #65331, Bug #14120708)

  • Using \func would prevent the Apply changes to data option to function, and instead "Pending changes" error message windows would be displayed. (Bug #62061, Bug #12844298)

  • In the SQL Editor, the cursor would inappropriately flash. This was fixed while moving to the native Scintilla control. (Bug #61752, Bug #12757202)
