  • Executing the Table Data Import wizard with CSV data would sometimes fail when using a remote MySQL connection. (Bug #21065442, Bug #76991)

  • On Windows, attempting to connect to a MySQL server that only had named pipes enabled would fail and emit the following exception: "Invalid for this platform protocol requested(MYSQL_PROTOCOL_SOCKET)". (Bug #20885645, Bug #76692)

  • Executing (applying) an Alter Table operation after deleting a table comment would not execute the query, as the generated SQL contained "COMMENT =;" instead of "COMMENT = '';". (Bug #20836140, Bug #76578)

  • The bundled MySQL client was upgraded to MySQL 5.6.24. (Bug #20747709)
