* MySQL Workbench now supports macOS 10.14 Mojave,
including full compatibility with the Dark Mode color
scheme. (Bug #28831956, Bug #92902)
* The Adv. Find tab operation that searched an open EER
diagram by database objects only was removed.
* All editions of MySQL Workbench and the bundled libraries
were upgraded to use OpenSSL 1.0.2q. (Bug #28695759)
* Keyboard access was added to the home screen tab to
enable navigation using the Tab and Enter keys. In
addition, the screen view now scrolls to display a
selected item if the item was off-screen when highlighted
with the Tab key.
On Windows and Linux hosts, the Application key and
Ctrl+F10 now open a menu of commands (context menu)
related to the selection.
* Two redundant features were removed from all platforms:
+ The connection information pop-up sheet on the home
Instead, open Manage Connections from the Database
menu (or Edit Connection from the context menu of
each connection) to view connection details.
+ The merge icon (two arrows pointing at each other)
located in the Navigation area of the side panel
Content from the Administration and Schemas tabs
were merged or split when this icon was toggled.
Now, the administration section links and schema
tree appear in separate tabs only.
* Valid decimal data within a Microsoft SQL Server table
generated an error when used with the MySQL Workbench
Migration Wizard. (Bug #28962023, Bug #93293)
* The InnoDB status shown within the Administration -
Dashboard tab displayed the wrong usage percent.
* A conflicting dependency was removed that prevented the
mysql-connector-c++-devel package installation when MySQL
Workbench was installed first. (Bug #28915929,
* The on-screen process of editing a stored procedure did
not prompt to save the changes. (Bug #28880743,
* A new table added to an existing model caused MySQL
Workbench to stop working. (Bug #28879925, Bug #93067)
* The alter-table operation when applied to partitioned
tables on Windows caused MySQL Workbench to stop working.
(Bug #28856542, Bug #92990)
* Characters from Cyrillic character sets when included in
the path to SSH key files caused valid connection
attempts to fail without producing a clear error message.
These characters now are permitted within the path.
(Bug #28814329, Bug #92847)
* Connections made to a remote MySQL server over SSH did
not recover properly after the network was interrupted
temporarily. (Bug #28806660, Bug #90884)
* New accounts created to use standard authentication were
instead created to require strong password encryption
when the default_authentication_plugin server system
variable was configured with the caching_sha2_password
value. (Bug #28777856, Bug #92740)
* The default user name, newuser, was not accepted when it
was used to create a new account. (Bug #28776902,
* The operation to migrate a Microsoft SQL Server schema
produced an error when it encountered problematic tables
during the reverse-engineering step. (Bug #28747888,
* A table editor tab that was opened by clicking the table
icon from within the sidebar (Schemas tab) displayed the
correct SELECT * FROM query and results, but the query
text did not line up along the left margin as expected.
* Context-menu actions (New Tab, Save Tab, or Copy Path to
Clipboard) when applied to an open SQL editor tab caused
the tab to close unexpectedly on Linux. (Bug #28721377)
* The color used to highlight a query in the SQL editor was
the same color used for the text, which made the selected
query appear to be missing when it was highlighted.
(Bug #28691256, Bug #92535, Bug #28715080)
* The Report a Bug action from the Help menu returned an
error instead of opening the MySQL bug database on macOS
systems. (Bug #28612380, Bug #92327)
* The last file selected from a previous directory during
any browse operation was carried over after navigating to
a new directory and without selecting a new file from the
directory. Files now must be selected explicitly within
the browse dialog box. (Bug #28608962, Bug #92104)
* Some columns within a Microsoft SQL Server database table
were not migrated as expected. The operation returned an
error when copying mixed data types. (Bug #27838190,
* Multiple SQL queries executed sequentially in separate
tabs did not resolve as expected on Windows. The first
query ran to completion, but the tab would not close. The
second query never finished. Thereafter, no additional
queries could run and the program would not exit.
(Bug #25965655, Bug #86090)
* The Migration Wizard was unable to retrieve a schema list
from source when the source RDBMS was Microsoft SQL
Server and a valid FreeTDS driver (required by Linux) was
provided. (Bug #25457611)
* No context help was displayed with a view or stored
procedure in the SQL editor. (Bug #24697574)
