MySQL Workbench 5.2.16 Beta 6 Available

We have published a new beta release of Version 5.2.16 Workbench Beta 6 build includes fixes for 67 bugs.

In Beta 6 we’ve also responded to great community ideas and feedback with various new convenience and security features:

  1. Saving your profile/connection passwords in OSX keychain, gnome-keyring or – for windows – in a encrypted password-vault-file.
  2. New rapid development features for generating complete SQL Select/DML statements or names for selected objects in Query Editor to either the query area or clipboard.
  3. New in the Windows version (coming to Mac and Linux soon) the ability to set a preference for the placement of the sidebar in the Query Editor (left or right side.)
  4. And last but not least, we put a good bit of focus on optimizing and stabilizing the administrator components.

We want to thank all the people who have been testing MySQL Workbench 5.2 alphas …

Installing Midnight Commander 4.7 on Mac OS X

Another short post just to remember the procedure for the next time I’ll be setting up a new mac. For those of my readers who do not know what Midnight Commander (aka mc) is, GNU Midnight Commander is a visual file manager, created under a heavy influence of Norton Commander file manager from dark DOS ages For more information, you can visit their web site. Now, get to the installation topic itself.

To install mc on a Mac OS X machine, you need macports installed and then first thing you’ll need to do is to install some prerequisite libraries:

1
$ sudo port install libiconv slang2

Next thing, download the sources …

Rediscovering Programming with Python, Cocoa and PyObjC

Use PyObjC to code Python under the Mac Cocoa framework, and MySQLdb to interface with MySQL! That’s the advice I got in reply to my recent blog. The discussions were so inspiring that I spent all time when out running yesterday daydreaming about how wonderful it will be to rediscover the aesthetics of programming and regain the control over my personal IT.

So, to recap a bit of my thinking: Once a programmer, always a programmer. If you’ve learned how to code and to master your own IT life to a certain degree, you get used to it. At least I did. But then fate wrote a declaration of incapacity for me. Not only did I become a manager and got to do less and less coding. More aggravatingly, I changed operating systems. Gone …

Developing small Mac apps with MySQL

What tool should I use to develop small MySQL end user applications on my Mac?

Let me start by saying that I don’t know the answer, and I’m looking for your guidance. To make my question more specific, let me describe my background and what I want.

I started my professional career in the 1980s as a developer using a tool called FOCUS by Information Builders. Terminology was different in those times. Focus was “a hierarchical database” and a “4GL“, which stood for “Fourth generation programming language“. Presumably, 4GLs saved lots of development time over the third generation, which wasn’t just COBOL (no, I never wrote a line of that) but …

Blog Statistics 2009

Others have done it, so why shouldn’t I do it, too? Well, usually that’s not my line of thought, but when today I read David Linsin's blog post about his stats I thought I might follow along.

Overall stats

The overall visits to my blog – and countless others with no doubt – display the workday/weekend jagged line one would expect. The summer months seem to be a little lower on average, but that’s ok, people deserve their vacations. Blue line is 2009, green line is 2008 for comparison.
