Changes in MySQL Workbench 8.0.13 (2018-10-22, General Availability)

     * Server Support

     * Functionality Added or Changed

     * Bugs Fixed

Server Support

     * Support for MySQL 5.5 by MySQL Workbench 8.0 was removed.
       If you still need to use MySQL Workbench on a MySQL 5.5
       server, you can use MySQL Workbench 6.3, which is
       available from MySQL Product Archives (see

Functionality Added or Changed

     * MySQL Workbench on macOS 10.14 Mojave was tested with
       positive results. The new Dark Mode feature is not yet
       compatible with all screens and should not be enabled for
       this release.

Bugs Fixed

     * With valid geometry points inserted, the option to open
       the points in a browser failed on macOS hosts because the
       URL was improperly formed. (Bug #28587193, Bug #92266)

     * An apostrophe character (') within a table comment
       generated a parsing error when an attempt was made to
       alter the table. (Bug #28552873, Bug #92191)

     * Insufficient privilege was granted during the attempt to
       create a new MySQL Enterprise Backup user account.
       Although valid prerequisite backup information was
       provided, the validation script returned the following
       error message: Access denied for backup account.
       (Bug #28536272, Bug #92115)

     * When remote management with SSH was enabled, attempting
       to insert the required passwords in the Options file
       produced an error message. After the error was closed,
       the Administration tab became unresponsive and MySQL
       Workbench did not shut down properly. (Bug #28519087,
       Bug #92061)

     * An error with the following message was generated when
       the export operation was executed on tables from an
       earlier server version: Unknown table 'COLUMN_STATISTICS'
       in information_schema (1109).
       Because the version of mysqldump used with the operation
       can differ from that of the target server, some features
       may not be exported as expected when the versions are
       mismatched. A warning message now provides a description
       of the condition, along with instructions to resolve the
       version mismatch, or the option to continue anyway.
       (Bug #28471433, Bug #91640)

     * On Windows hosts, the history of scheduled MySQL
       Enterprise Backup jobs was not persisted in the dashboard
       between MySQL Workbench sessions. This fix eliminates the
       issue; however, the existing mysqlwbmeb.vbs file must be
       removed before scheduling new backup jobs.
       (Bug #28430457)

     * The default target version of MySQL to use with MySQL
       Workbench models was set to MySQL 5.6.30 and did not
       increment automatically. With this fix, the value now
       defaults to the latest version. The default target
       version can also be set manually (see Preferences:
       Modeling: MySQL
       (Bug #28397515, Bug #91782)

     * Executing queries over an period of time caused the
       existing result grid in each query tab to be hidden when
       the grid was previously visible and prevented the results
       grid in new tabs from showing. (Bug #28361489,
       Bug #91265)

     * After copying a query into a second query editor,
       auto-completion did not display the related column names.
       Instead, when auto-completion was engaged, MySQL
       Workbench stopped working. (Bug #28312867, Bug #91559)

     * The operation to compare schemas did not appear in the
       menu after a valid model was opened on Linux hosts.
       (Bug #28249454)

     * The filter arrows that select objects for forward or
       reverse engineering within wizards generated an error
       instead of moving the objects as expected.
       (Bug #26435349, Bug #26922638, Bug #87980, Bug #25921645,
       Bug #86013, Bug #25852505, Bug #85837, Bug #25741519,
       Bug #85522)

     * Schema privileges in the Administration - Users and
       Privileges tab (Object Rights, DDL Rights, and Other
       Rights) were not visible with all screen resolutions.
       (Bug #25584920, Bug #85079)

     * The color used to highlight a selected item in the schema
       tree view did not provide enough contrast from the
       background color to distinguish it from the other items
       easily. The new highlight color makes it easy to see
       which item is selected. (Bug #25456216)

On Behalf of Oracle/MySQL Release Engineering Team,
