In the documentation for MySQL Workbench 8.0.23, we have started changing the term “master” to “source”, the term “slave” to “replica”, the term “whitelist” to “allowlist”, and the term “blacklist” to “blocklist”. There are currently no changes to the product's syntax, so these terms are still present in the documentation where the current code requires their use. See the blog post MySQL Terminology Updates for more information.
Known limitation with macOS and MySQL Workbench 8.0.23. MySQL Workbench closes abruptly when started. To run MySQL Workbench 8.0.23 on macOS without this limitation, install Python 3.7 on your computer.
MySQL Workbench now uses Python 3 for functionality such as migration, scripting shell, administrative tasks, and its SQL IDE. MySQL Workbench also ensures that installations on macOS (10.15 and later) have a valid version of Python available rather than relying on an operating system to provide the necessary scripting language.
MySQL Workbench supports macOS 11 with this release.
