We have a problem with bugreports for the GUI tools.

Since people fill in the GUI tool version into the version field we have no information which MySQL server they are connecting to.

This is a bad thing because it makes it difficult to reproduce the bug, which may only be present when connecting to e.g. 4.1.1, which we dont test with.

I usually leads to Need Feedback requests and delays in bugfixing / time spent to fix.

Therefore it would be good to have a seperate Server Version field for the GUI tools.

It would make sence for the connectors, also.

And please make that field mandatory (for GUI tools only)


How to repeat:
Make a bugreport for GUI tools.

Suggested fix:
Add field.

Thank you for a reasonable feature request. Same separate field (Server version) may be useful for Connectors-related bug reports.
