Changes in MySQL Workbench 8.0.14 (2019-01-21, General

     * Functionality Added or Changed

     * Bugs Fixed

Functionality Added or Changed

     * The following new functions were added to the Workbench
       GRT module:

          + activateDiagram(<Diagram>)
            Opens the selected EER diagram for use with the
            exportPNG, exportSVG, exportPS, and exportPDF

          + exportDiagramToPng(<Diagram>, <path>)
            Performs a PNG export of an EER diagram to the path
            provided without activating it.
       (Bug #28853802, Bug #92985)

     * MySQL Workbench now supports macOS 10.14 Mojave,
       including full compatibility with the Dark Mode color
       scheme. (Bug #28831956, Bug #92902)

     * The Adv. Find tab operation that searched an open EER
       diagram by database objects only was removed. 
       (Bug #28740047)

     * All editions of MySQL Workbench and the bundled libraries
       were upgraded to use OpenSSL 1.0.2q. (Bug #28695759)

     * Keyboard access was added to the home screen tab to
       enable navigation using the Tab and Enter keys. In
       addition, the screen view now scrolls to display a
       selected item if the item was off-screen when highlighted
       with the Tab key.
       On Windows and Linux hosts, the Application key and
       Ctrl+F10 now open a menu of commands (context menu)
       related to the selection.

     * Two redundant features were removed from all platforms:

          + The connection information pop-up sheet on the home
            screen tab
            Instead, open Manage Connections from the Database
            menu (or Edit Connection from the context menu of
            each connection) to view connection details.

          + The merge icon (two arrows pointing at each other)
            located in the Navigation area of the side panel
            Content from the Administration and Schemas tabs
            were merged or split when this icon was toggled.
            Now, the administration section links and schema
            tree appear in separate tabs only.

Bugs Fixed

     * Valid decimal data within a Microsoft SQL Server table
       generated an error when used with the MySQL Workbench
       Migration Wizard. (Bug #28962023, Bug #93293)

     * The InnoDB status shown within the Administration -
       Dashboard tab displayed the wrong usage percent. 
       (Bug #28919419)

     * A conflicting dependency was removed that prevented the
       mysql-connector-c++-devel package installation when MySQL
       Workbench was installed first. (Bug #28915929,
       Bug #93172)

     * The on-screen process of editing a stored procedure did
       not prompt to save the changes. (Bug #28880743,
       Bug #93068)

     * A new table added to an existing model caused MySQL
       Workbench to stop working. (Bug #28879925, Bug #93067)

     * The alter-table operation when applied to partitioned
       tables on Windows caused MySQL Workbench to stop working.
       (Bug #28856542, Bug #92990)

     * Characters from Cyrillic character sets when included in
       the path to SSH key files caused valid connection
       attempts to fail without producing a clear error message.
       These characters now are permitted within the path. 
       (Bug #28814329, Bug #92847)

     * Connections made to a remote MySQL server over SSH did
       not recover properly after the network was interrupted
       temporarily. (Bug #28806660, Bug #90884)

     * New accounts created to use standard authentication were
       instead created to require strong password encryption
       when the default_authentication_plugin server system
       variable was configured with the caching_sha2_password
       value. (Bug #28777856, Bug #92740)

     * The default user name, newuser, was not accepted when it
       was used to create a new account. (Bug #28776902,
       Bug #92738)

     * The operation to migrate a Microsoft SQL Server schema
       produced an error when it encountered problematic tables
       during the reverse-engineering step. (Bug #28747888, 
       Bug #92659)

     * A table editor tab that was opened by clicking the table
       icon from within the sidebar (Schemas tab) displayed the
       correct SELECT * FROM query and results, but the query
       text did not line up along the left margin as expected.
       (Bug #28730407)

     * Context-menu actions (New Tab, Save Tab, or Copy Path to
       Clipboard) when applied to an open SQL editor tab caused
       the tab to close unexpectedly on Linux. (Bug #28721377)

     * The color used to highlight a query in the SQL editor was
       the same color used for the text, which made the selected
       query appear to be missing when it was highlighted. 
       (Bug #28691256, Bug #92535, Bug #28715080)

     * The Report a Bug action from the Help menu returned an
       error instead of opening the MySQL bug database on macOS
       systems. (Bug #28612380, Bug #92327)

     * The last file selected from a previous directory during
       any browse operation was carried over after navigating to
       a new directory and without selecting a new file from the
       directory. Files now must be selected explicitly within
       the browse dialog box. (Bug #28608962, Bug #92104)

     * Some columns within a Microsoft SQL Server database table
       were not migrated as expected. The operation returned an
       error when copying mixed data types. (Bug #27838190, 
       Bug #84777)

     * Multiple SQL queries executed sequentially in separate
       tabs did not resolve as expected on Windows. The first
       query ran to completion, but the tab would not close. The
       second query never finished. Thereafter, no additional
       queries could run and the program would not exit. 
       (Bug #25965655, Bug #86090)

     * The Migration Wizard was unable to retrieve a schema list
       from source when the source RDBMS was Microsoft SQL
       Server and a valid FreeTDS driver (required by Linux) was
       provided. (Bug #25457611)

     * No context help was displayed with a view or stored
       procedure in the SQL editor. (Bug #24697574)
