Read the Changes in MySQL Workbench 5.2.38.

RPM are available in my repository for fedora 13 to 16 and Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL, CentOS, ...)

As always :

yum --enablerepo=remi install mysql-workbench

Of course, it was build with mysql-5.5.21.

This version will be soon available in official updates for:

This build still doesn't use the system mysql-connector-c++, because the bundled version includes not published changes.

This new version provides and uses a new sub-package : mysql-utilities (build from the bundled library sources) which contains some interesting commands. It requires the new mysql-connector-python package.
