sorry .. but I did not find an appropriate category for this report!

The download link from http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MySQLGUITools/... links to (for instance)

direct FTP access to the folder on this FTP mirror

reveals TWO installer files (not mentioning builds without installer)
* mysql-workbench-5.0.10.zip (from nov 30th)
* mysql-workbench-oss-5.0.10-beta-win32 (from nov 29th)

plus some 'externals' package
* mysql-workbench-externals-166-win32.zip (a huge one approx. 60 MB from now 30th)

What is the idea??  What is the difference? What is the 'externals' package for?

How to repeat:
see above

Thank you for a problem report. Indeed, files are there. And this one:

File: mysql-workbench-externals-166-win32.zip  	60575 KB  	30.11.2007  	19:22:00

should be documented, I think.

The .zip are the sources and -externals are the 3rd party libraries needed to build from sources.

They are linked from the downloads page.
