MySQL Workbench

I've used DBDesigner in the past for MySQL data modeling, but that was discontinued a while back. It looks like Workbench might be my new tool for MySQL schema designing and visualization. I needed to do some schema comparisons from existing DBs today to write an upgrade script for a PHP/MySQL web application and Workbench wound up having just the features that I needed.

The steps that I needed to do to get the upgrade script were covered by this post. I'll keep evaluating it to see if I need the commercial version or not, but it's so cheap ($99), that I'll probably wind up buying it.
