This new release of SQLyog fixes two bugs that had little or no impact for most users. But for some users the fixes are important.
Changes as compared to MySQL GUI 12.5.0 include:
* The option to ‘dump as HEX’ did not work as expected for BLOB and BIT datatypes.
* Selecting ‘Default’ for the ‘Session Idle Timeout’ in the connection manager was setting the SESSION value for ‘wait_timeout’ variable to “28800” irrespective of the GLOBAL value on the particular server. Now SESSION value will be inherited from the GLOBAL value in such case.
