6.14 Changes in MySQL Workbench 5.2.34 (2011-05-26)

This section documents all changes and bug fixes applied since the release of MySQL Workbench 5.2.33.

This release changed the version of Python version in MySQL Workbench to 2.7. However, this produces a problem when upgrading from 5.2.33. The reason is that the installer leaves all the compiled python files (*.pyc) in the installation folder. The next time MySQL Workbench loads, you cannot get beyond the splash screen.

As a workaround, uninstall MySQL Workbench before you install 5.2.34. (This will not do anything to your stored connections, starters, settings, and so forth.) Make sure that all compiled python files (*.pyc) have been removed from the installation folder after uninstallation is finished, before you install 5.2.34.

This problem was first encountered on Windows using the MSI package, but might also affect the Zip package or even other platforms. In any case, remove the old files before installing 5.2.34.
