Navicat For MySQL Bugs Filed

Posted by Artem Russakovskii on March 25th, 2008 in Databases

Updated: April 22nd, 2008

Update: Looks like both of these have been fixed in 8.0.26.

Navicat For MySQL is a GUI for MySQL developers. I've tried a few tools before but somehow got attached to Navicat due to a few nice features that I'm not going to go into right now.

I have the latest as of today version 8.0.23.
