MySQL Workbench 6.2: Fabric and Client Connection Browser

MySQL Fabric Support MySQL Fabric servers can now be added to the Workbench home screen. When clicked, these connections will dynamically query the Fabric server and individual connections for all the managed MySQL servers will be created.

Updated Client Connection Browser Speaking of the Client ...
