Dear MySQL users,

platforms from our download pages at:


Changes in MySQL Workbench 8.0.23 (2021-01-18, General Availability)

In the documentation for MySQL Workbench 8.0.23, we have
started changing the term "master" to "source", the term
"slave" to "replica", the term "whitelist" to "allowlist",
and the term "blacklist" to "blocklist". There are currently
no changes to the product's syntax, so these terms are still
present in the documentation where the current code requires
their use. See the blog post MySQL Terminology Updates
) for more information.

* Functionality Added or Changed

* Bugs Fixed

Functionality Added or Changed

* MySQL Workbench now uses Python 3 for functionality such
as migration, scripting shell, administrative tasks, and
its SQL IDE. MySQL Workbench also ensures that
installations on macOS (10.15 and later) have a valid
version of Python available rather than relying on an
operating system to provide the necessary scripting

Bugs Fixed

* Known issue: A change in the %cmake macro caused an error
to occur when MySQL Workbench was built from source code
on Fedora 33 using the RPM package. Use the new
%cmake_build macro to avoid the error. (Bug #32019872)

On Behalf of MySQL Release Engineering Team,
Surabhi Bhat
