MySQL Workbench 6.2.2 RC has been released

The MySQL developer tools team announces 6.2.2 RC – the final release candidate for MySQL Workbench 6.2.

MySQL Workbench 6.2 is the upcoming major update for the official MySQL 
graphical development tool .

MySQL Workbench 6.2 focuses on support for innovations released in MySQL 5.6  and MySQL 5.7
DMR (Development Release) as well as MySQL Fabric 1.5, with features such as:

  • A new spatial data viewer, allowing graphical views of result sets containing GEOMETRY data and
     taking advantage of the new GIS capabilities in MySQL 5.7.
  • Support for new MySQL 5.7.4 SQL syntax and configuration options.
  • Metadata Locks View shows the locks connections are blocked or waiting on.
  • MySQL Fabric cluster connectivity – Browsing, view status, and connect to any MySQL instance in a 
    Fabric Cluster.
  • MS Access migration Wizard – easily move to MySQL Databases.

Other significant usability improvements  were made, aiming to raise productivity for advanced and new users:
  • Direct shortcut buttons to commonly used features in the schema tree.
  • Improved results handling. Columns have better auto-sizing and their widths are saved. Fonts can also be
    customized. Results “pinned” to persist viewing data.
  • A convenient Run SQL Script command to directly execute SQL scripts, without loading them first.
  • Database Modeling has been updated to allow changes to the formatting of note objects and attached SQL
    scripts can now be included in forward engineering and synchronization scripts.
  • Integrated Visual Explain within the result set panel.
  • Visual Explain drill down for large to very large explain plans.
  • Shared SQL snippets in the SQL Editor, allowing multiple users to share SQL code by storing it within a
    MySQL instance. 
  • And much more.
