SQLyog MySQL GUI 11.5 Released

Changes (as compared to SQLyog  MySQL GUI 11.42) include:

* ‘session restore’ now saves and restores content of open Query tabs and History tabs. As regards History tab please observe that its content will not be allowed to grow beyond 50,000 queries. When the 50,001st query is added the 1st is removed at runtime and so on. This is not something new – it was always like that. However with the addition of History tab to ‘session restore’ this is now even more relevant as using ‘session restore’ for long time (months, years) with the same connection could cause the History tab content to grow beyond reasonable limits (possibly affecting performance of ‘session restore’ and consuming excessive memory) if History was allowed to grow without limits. Finally please observe that internal storage format for saved sessions have changed between the 5.0 beta and this GA. For this reason sessions saved by the beta will not be opened by this GA release. We are sorry for this inconvenience caused to our beta users.
* As a consequence of above user is not prompted to save open Query tabs when the program is closed and ‘session restore’ is enabled. User is still prompted when closing a single connection tab or a single query tab..
* With ‘session restore’ enabled, session is now also saved automatically in the background every 10 seconds.
* A Query tab can be renamed (from the context menu of the tab itself). ‘session restore’ will open the tab with the user-defined name.
* Added the HTTP content-type ‘application/xml’ as an option for HTTP tunnel.
* Import external data will now create  tables with the database collation of the database imported to, provided that database charset is utf8. Note that we cannot do this if database charset is not uft8 as imported tables are always created as utf8 and comparable collations do not always exist for unicode and non-unicode charsets in MySQL.

Bug fixes:
* Fixed a crash when executing a single bracket ( “(” ) as a statement.
* Import External Data could fail when creating indexes on imported TEXT columns as the tool did not specify the mandatory index prefix length.

* The HTTP-tunneler has been updated with this release and users making use of HTTP tunnel must update the tunneler on their MySQL host.  The previous tunneler – released with SQLyog 8.8 more than 3 years ago – used the function ‘set_magic_quotes_runtime()’ that has been deprecated for some time in recent PHP versions. Till now we have suppressed any errors resulting from this, but this is a permanent solution.

    today I got you mail including your update offer for SQLyog.

    I switched to Apple systems a few years ago. Since then I’m using an older version of SQLyog via Wine on my mac.

    But unfortunately it runs not very stable (various crashes), so I looked for alternatives on mac osx.
    I would like to use SQLyog, but I think, you are offering this great tool only for Windows.

    If you plan a port for Mac OSX, please let me know. I would be one of the first to upgrade my SQLyog version.

    Best Regards

    We cannot really do anything about poor integration of Wine into OS-X (if this is the case).

    There are more Wine ports of OS-X. There are different versions (also different versions of OS_X). It may mater what you use .

    We had similar complaints before, but we also had feedback from happy Mac users. We also have this FAQ (that you may know):
    (and we have no plans currently for a ‘native’ Mac version of SQLyog)

      I do have the same problem! Well, i read your FAQ and X11 is very imperfect, with a lot of problems, like out-screen positioning and bad font rendering, considering this, virtualization is better, BUT, the problem with virtualization is not only with cost, but with memory used. Using virtualization, according to the windows version, you may need a lot of memory to run only SQLYog. Really, SQLYog is the best MySQL IDE i used, but is hard to use on mac computers. You will not release mac os x, but, why not release an old-version source-code or a “lite version” source code for community create osx native binaries for sqlyog?

      Thank you!

    You might wish to try it under Parallels on OSX, where it works pretty well. But then of course you need a Windows VM, which possibly is not an option for you.

    Fine release, but where is the auto update feature? I have to login to the customer area, manually download an install the binary. I wish i could read on startup “new version available: click here to upgdate” or something like that.
