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