MySQL Workbench 5.2.36 is now out and brings a lot of improvements across the board, with special focus on the Query Editor. We’ll cover some of that here:
Redesigned Query Editor
- The log of executed commands and server responses is now always visible while resultset grids and the query editor can be resized according to your needs. Resultsets are also grouped in the same tab as the query editor that generated them.
- SELECT queries are now analyzed as in the old MySQL Query Browser tool and, if possible, its resultset can be edited in the grid. If the resultset cannot be edited, you can place the mouse over the ReadOnly label and view the reason.
- Improved snippets manager and editor, allows having snippets list always at hand, while editing can be done without disrupting work on the main query area.
