MySQL Notifier 1.1.4 has been released

Javier Ignacio Trevino Cobos
Software Development Manager

The MySQL
Windows Experience Team is proud to announce the release of MySQL Notifier
version 1.1.4
, the  latest addition to the MySQL Installer for Windows.

MySQL
Notifier enables developers and DBAs to easily monitor, start and stop all
their MySQL database instances. It provides a familiar Microsoft SQL Server
look and feel and integrates with MySQL Workbench.

MySQL
Notifier is installed using the MySQL Installer for Windows.

The MySQL
installer comes in 2 versions

  • Full
    (150 MB) which includes a complete set of mysql products with their binaries
    included in the download
  • Web
    (1.5 MB - a network install) which will just pull the MySQL Notifier over the
    web and install it when run.

You can
download MySQL Installer from our official Downloads page at
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/.


MySQL Notifier 1.1.4 introduces the following features:

  • Monitoring
    of services in remote Windows computers (any service, not only MySQL Server
    services, similar to the local services monitoring offered in MySQL Notifier
    1.0.3) via asynchronous Windows Management Instrumentation. Monitored services
    are grouped by computer name where the topmost is the Localhost. After a
    service in the Localhost or a remote computer is added to the monitored list,
    the MySQL Notifier automatically monitors for MySQL Server services addition
    (this option can be turned-off by users).
  • Monitoring
    of MySQL Server instances on any platform via a timer configurable by
    users.  These instances are monitored via MySQL Workbench connections
    which are automatically shared with the MySQL Notifier. If MySQL Workbench is
    not installed, the connections are saved and used by the MySQL Notifier and
    migrated to MySQL Workbench if the latter is installed.

Also this
release contains the following bug fixes:

  • The
    MySQL Workbench SQL Editor link was visible even when the option was not
    available, and it would open the Home screen of MySQL Workbench. This link is
    now enabled if the available MySQL Workbench supports opening the SQL Editor
    from the command line, and if the bound service contains MySQL Workbench
    connections, otherwise the link is disabled.
    • Bug
      #14332402 - CLICKING "SQL EDITOR" DOESN'T ACTUALLY OPEN SQL EDITOR IN
      WB
  • Sometimes
    the MySQL Notifier would fail to automatically add MySQL services to the monitor
    even when the AutoAddServicesToMonitor option was enabled.
    • Bug
      #16660623 - NOTIFIER IS NOT LISTING THE JUST INSTALLED SERVER INSTANCE
    • MySql
      bug #67617, Bug #15887501 - MYSQL NOTIFIER AUTOFILTER NOT AUTO FINDING RUNNING
      SERVICES
    • Bug#14345177
      - NEW SERVICE IS NOT ADDED TO NOTIFIER
  • Services
    that were manually added to MySQL Notifier for Microsoft Windows would not be
    listed until after MySQL Notifier for Microsoft Windows was restarted.
  • MySQL
    Notifier for Microsoft Windows would not start after upgrading version 1.0.3 to
    1.1.3. A workaround was to delete the old 1.0.3 settings from the MySQL
    Notifier settings folder (contained within %APPDATA%) before executing the
    upgrade.
  • Instance
    options edited from the Manage Instance Settings dialog were not saved. They
    are now written to settings.config.
  • The
    MySQL Notifier for Microsoft Windows icon remained yellow when installed with a
    new MySQL Server along with the Notifier, even when the service within the
    Notifier was running.
  • MySQL
    Notifier for Microsoft Windows would continue to run after it was
    uninstalled.  A workaround was to close MySQL Notifier for Microsoft
    Windows before uninstalling it.
    • Bug
      #16661468 - NOTIFIER PROCESS/APPLICATION IS STILL RUNNING AFTER UNINSTALL.
  • On
    Microsoft Windows 8, the autostart registry entry was not created properly,
    therefore the Notifier would not start after the user logged in.
    • MySQL
      Bug #69279,  Bug #16832752 - MYSQL NOTIFIER: DOES NOT START WITH WINDOWS,
      INCORRECT SETTING WITHIN REGISTER.
    • Bug
      #14400738 - RUN AT WINDOWS STARTUP OPTION IS NOT WORKING
  • The
    MySQL Notifier for Microsoft Windows service will now start itself immediately
    after being installed by the MySQL Installer.
    • Bug #16927045 - AUTOSTART NOTIFIER
      AFTER SUCCESSFULL INSTALLATION.
  • A
    Refresh Status action was added to the Actions menu. It manually refreshes the
    status of all monitored services (in both local and remote computers) and MySQL
    instances.
