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.
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.
Notifier is installed using the MySQL Installer for Windows.
installer comes in 2 versions
(150 MB) which includes a complete set of mysql products with their binaries
included in the download
(1.5 MB - a network install) which will just pull the MySQL Notifier over the
web and install it when run.
download MySQL Installer from our official Downloads page at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/.
MySQL Notifier 1.1.4 introduces the following features:
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).
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.
release contains the following bug fixes:
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.
#14332402 - CLICKING "SQL EDITOR" DOESN'T ACTUALLY OPEN SQL EDITOR IN
the MySQL Notifier would fail to automatically add MySQL services to the monitor
even when the AutoAddServicesToMonitor option was enabled.
#16660623 - NOTIFIER IS NOT LISTING THE JUST INSTALLED SERVER INSTANCE
bug #67617, Bug #15887501 - MYSQL NOTIFIER AUTOFILTER NOT AUTO FINDING RUNNING
- NEW SERVICE IS NOT ADDED TO NOTIFIER
that were manually added to MySQL Notifier for Microsoft Windows would not be
listed until after MySQL Notifier for Microsoft Windows was restarted.
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
options edited from the Manage Instance Settings dialog were not saved. They
are now written to settings.config.
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.
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.
#16661468 - NOTIFIER PROCESS/APPLICATION IS STILL RUNNING AFTER UNINSTALL.
Microsoft Windows 8, the autostart registry entry was not created properly,
therefore the Notifier would not start after the user logged in.
Bug #69279, Bug #16832752 - MYSQL NOTIFIER: DOES NOT START WITH WINDOWS,
INCORRECT SETTING WITHIN REGISTER.
#14400738 - RUN AT WINDOWS STARTUP OPTION IS NOT WORKING
MySQL Notifier for Microsoft Windows service will now start itself immediately
after being installed by the MySQL Installer.

AFTER SUCCESSFULL INSTALLATION.
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
