Given the announcement earlier this week of an updated release of the actively developed MySQL Workbench 5.2, I thought I'd give it a quick look...
Install on Windows went without a hitch.
One thing I noticed, which I don't remember being previously available in MySQL GUI tools, is the ability to connect to a remote MySQL server via SSH tunneling.
Below is a screen shot:
Well done! A small, but significant addition for folks that require SSH to connect to their systems.
I did notice that the design in Workbench involves selecting "Standard TCP/IP over SSH" from the drop down and then providing credentials in a more "form" oriented layout. An "SSH" tab like we see in Navicat or SQLyog might be more familiar for some folks. (Also, a minor note, no "browse" button next to the "Path to SSH key file" option.)
I know that 5.2 is still in active development, but the functionality in regards to SSH looks good to go...with maybe just a few tweaks to the connections dialog :)
