What works

Everything seems to work well and I use it in production. There's only some small limitations (listed below).


What does not

There's some trouble running it with Compiz (My Wine is configured to allow the window manager to control the windows and decorate them). The window doesn't reappear after minimized and I need to maximize it 3 times in order to see it.

There's a limitation of Copying & Pasting large amounts of text, but I believe it's related to the limit Wine have in its transfer area (not a limitation of the software itself). Sometimes I try to paste big SQL scripts and it doesn't paste the entire text. Then I need to use an native software like MySQL Query Browser for Linux.


What was not tested

I use it in production and I think I tested almost everything.

Additional Comments

There's a way to pass over the Copy & Paste limitation without using another software. Instead of pasting the script, open it via the import menu. I tried to open a 42Mb SQL Script file and it warns me that the file is too big (it may use large amount of memory) and prompts me if I want to run the file directly (safe) or load it in the Query Editor (uses memory). I tested it trying to open in the editor, it freezes the screen for some seconds, but opened the entire file. It's performance dropped significantly, and it uses almost 200Mb of memory to show the query in the editor (I think it's because of syntax highlight, native programs also consumes a lot of memory) and almost 400Mb to run it with 100% use of one of my 2 CPU's. It will freeze the screen while running the script, but it'll run it well.
