With the first beta of MySQL Workbench 6.0 just released, we’ll
go through the list of improvements we’ve made since 5.2.47
New Home Screen
The Home screen went through a renovation and now has a
modernized look. As part of the SQL Editor and Administration GUI
unification, there’s now a single list for MySQL connections.
Recently opened model files and other major features are also
accessible from it.
You can organize different connections into “folders” by right
clicking on a connection and selecting “Move to Group…” in the
New server connections can be added by clicking the + button next
to the MySQL Connections heading. By clicking the
Configure Remote Management… button in the new
connection setup dialog, you can add server management
capabilities to the connection. As before, SSH access with “sudo”
is needed for remote management.
