MySQL Notifier 1.1.5 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 1.1.5
, 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 1.1.5 introduces the following features:

 

  • The MySQL Utilities can now be opened from
    MySQL Notifier if installed separately from MySQL Workbench (it is no longer
    bundled with MySQL Workbench 6.x).
  • Added
    Workbench connections edition capability right from the Monitor MySQL Server
    Instance window of the MySQL Notifier (accessed through Actions > Manage
    Monitored Items… > Add… > MySQL Instance). Any of the listed MySQL
    Workbench connections can be right-clicked and a new “Edit Connection” context
    menu is available for users to edit the Workbench connection properties.
  • Changed the way the Workbench
    connections and servers files are monitored, now the Notifier detects
    automatically when Workbench is installed or uninstalled and starts or stops
    monitoring its files on those events so MySQL  Notifier does not need to
    be restarted to setup the monitoring of the files.

Also this
release contains the following bug fixes:

  • When the user deletes the .INI file for any
    MySQL server isntallation at c:\ProgramData\MySQL Server 5.X\ and its related
    Windows service is not deleted it caused an error on MysqL Notifier who relies
    on the server’s INI files. Fixed code to add an additional check to verify such
    .INI files exist before attempting to get configuration values from them.
    • Bug #17432516 - MYSQL NOTIFIER OPENS AND GIVES AN ERROR MESSAGE
      "HIGH SEVERITY ERROR"
    • MySQL Bug #70282 - MySQL Notifier opens and gives an error message
      "High Severity Error"
  • Fixed the creation of the Windows
    schedule task that calls the MySQL Installer to check for updates.
    • Bug #14388579 - SCHEDULED TASK TO CHECK FOR UPDATES DOESN'T START IN XP
  • Fixed a problem in which MySQL
    Service menu options (Configure Instance and SQL Editor submenus) were not
    refreshed correctly when the Workbench connections tied to them were changed on
    MySQL Workbench.
  • The SQL Editor submenu did not
    automatically refresh when connections were added or removed outside MySQL
    Notifier while it was running.
  • Upgrading MySQL Notifier to a new
    version corrupted its configuration file.
  • Added code to refresh MySQL
    instances when MySQL Notifier is loading so if Workbench was uninstalled and
    there were instances pointing to now invalid connections, they are removed and
    the menu items do not appear empty.
    • Bug #17671410 - NOTIFIER DOES NOT UPDATE INSTANCES EXISTED IN WORKBENCH
      WHEN REMOVING WORKBENCH
  • Fixed code that attempted to reflect
    changes done to a connection being used by a monitored MySQL Instance after
    adding new Workbench connections.
    • Bug #17697914 - CHECK ADD INSTANCE LIST AND CLICK "CANCEL",
      RAISE ERROR
