EOL of MySQL Query Browser, MySQL Administrator, MySQL Migration Toolkit

With the beta releases of MySQL Workbench 5.2 well under way, we are announcing the EOL of the MySQL GUI Tools Bundle.

The MySQL Tools team has been working on MySQL Workbench 5.2 to give DBAs and developers an integrated tools environment for:

  • Database Design & Modeling
  • SQL Development (replacing MySQL Query Browser)
  • Database Administration (replacing MySQL Administrator)

MySQL Workbench 5.2 also provides:

  • Remote Administration (using SSH-Tunneling)
  • Python scripting and plugins
  • Native GUI for Windows, Mac, Linux

A future release of MySQL Workbench (post 5.2) will add a migration plugin, providing features comparable to the MySQL Migration Toolkit component of the MySQL GUI Tools Bundle. The MySQL Support team will continue to provide technical assistance for MySQL Migration Toolkit until such migration support functionality is released in MySQL Workbench, but no new development or bug fixes will be provided against the existing MySQL Migration Toolkit product.

MySQL Support will continue to answer questions and provide assistance related to MySQL GUI Tools Bundle, as well as assist our customers in upgrading from those tools to MySQL Workbench 5.2 until June 30, 2010.

Starting Dec 18, 2009, MySQL will no longer accept bug reports submitted against the MySQL GUI Tools Bundle, and existing bug reports against these tools will no longer be worked on. Users should instead download, use, and submit bug reports (where necessary) against MySQL Workbench. Downloads of the MySQL GUI Tools Bundle will remain available, but will be moved into the MySQL Archives location.

Users should begin planning to upgrade to MySQL Workbench 5.2 GA.
