First things first. I'm not a representative of MySQL. I'm just a (happy) MySQL user.

For point-in-time recovery, you need to process the binlog file(s) with the commandline tool mysqlbinlog.

It can extract the commands from a binlog file into a format you can load with mysql commandline client.

See the Reference manual section on "Point-in-Time recovery".

I've given Workbench a quick look, and it doesn't seem suitable for the type of administration I do. MySQLAdministrator suits me fine.
I'm not aware of the proposed development path for Workbench.

Good luck.
