Whats new in MySQL Workbench 6.1

I have always had the attitude one should eat their own dog food. (so to speak ;-)

Especially when it comes to software.

As such, MySQL just released Workbench 6.1 with Visual Explain.

I have a production database that holds results from automated performance tests which is updated by an xml parser. Using the Visual Explain I found several queries in the parser causing table scans. Applying the suggest indexes resolved these scans.

There a lot of great additions to this latest release and it is free. Worth a look for sure.
