Read the Changes in MySQL Workbench 5.2.40.

RPM are available in my repository for fedora 13 to 17 and Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL, CentOS, ...)

As always :

yum --enablerepo=remi install mysql-workbench

Of course, it was build with mysql-5.5.24.

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

This new version requires the mysql-utilities package (which is now build separately, and waiting for review, see Review #812099) which contains some interesting commands.

I'm waiting for mysql-utilities to be approved before pushing the update in the official repository.
