Read the Releases Page for changes history, or Changes in MySQL Workbench 5.2.28.

The download site only provide RPM for Fedora 13 i386 and x86_64. My repository provides RPM for Fedora 11, 12, 13, 14, i386, x86_64, ppc and ppc64. Previous Fedora versions don't have needed dependencies, such as boost >= 1.37.0.

As always :

yum --enablerepo=remi install mysql-workbench

Of course, it was build with mysql-5.1.50

For a good packaging, it is necessary to use system libraries rather than bundled ones. Done for curl, libsigc++, boost, yassl (switch to openssl), ctemplate and mysql-connector-c++ (version 1.1.0, bzr snapshot 895, also available in my repo). For scintilla/silvercity, we'll keep the bundled version because this are modified ones and upstream project doesn't provides shared libraries (no build, no ABI stability).

To be followed on MySQL Workbench 5.2.28 GA Available

With this new version, I have submit it for official fedora repository : Review #629326 (but there still a lot of work).
