The MySQL Utilities Team is pleased to announce a major advancement of MySQL Utilities. It is now available as a separate download!
That's right. If you want to use MySQL Utilities without installing MySQL Workbench, you can do that now.
The Utilities release-1.3.0 has been built for Windows Installer, RPM archive, and .tar/.zip. We have also made downloads for source only if you want to use Utilities to develop your own utilities or install the product in custom location. We plan to add other repositories in the future.
Is that it? Well, not quite. We have also included a new utility - the .frm Reader. See the blog, "New Utility: .frm Reader" for more information.
If you'd like to try out the new download, visit the MySQL Workbench download page:http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/tools/utilities/Note
: this is an alpha release and will follow the alpha-beta-GA development path. As such, it is not included in MySQL Workbench. However, it does include all of the improvements from the release-1.2.X tree.
