Supported Platforms: MySQL Workbench

MySQL Workbench fully supports MySQL Server versions 5.5 and above. It may work with older server versions, but full functionality is not available then. Please note that MySQL Workbench on Linux is a Gnome application and is only formally supported on the Gnome desktop while it should run fine on other desktop environments.

MySQL Workbench 6.3 is the solution for setups using classic MySQL server versions (before MySQL 8.0), while MySQL Workbench 8.0 is the tool best optimized for use with MySQL 8.0 and higher. However, you can still use MySQL Workbench 8.0 for supported servers, including the MySQL 5.5 release series.
