I am a (very) long time Navicat user and version 12 of Navicat is about the worst piece of software I have seen in many, many years. Version 12 is a complete rewrite of their "engine", Navicat was starting from version 9 becoming more stable and stable. Version 11 worked fine for me.Starting form version 12 it has become an unusable piece of crap. Reported many bugs to Navicat and so did others. Last year I have purchased a long-term maintenance license, soon after that version 12 was released. If you are planning on buying, download a trial version first and try the functions you might use before you buy. Totally unacceptable alpha quality.

Incidentally I have posted this in the MySQL Essentials page, reposted it here again to make sure potential buyers/subscribers read this.

A while back I wrote a review for v9 that mentioned it was buggy, so I thought I should follow-up to say that I have found v10 to be rock solid. HUGE improvement in reliability in this release. Since I didn't mention it before I should point out one of Navicat's features that if you use it once will make the app worth the price: If you open a connection to two databases at the same time, you can migrate your tables (and views, procedures, etc) just by drag & dropping them from one db to the other. Boom. Done. No exporting & import. It's barely more difficult that moving a file across a network. Amazing. The other parts of the app continue to be refined, making editing tables, and stored procedures just a *little* bit nicer. And I know it's been there for a while, but the SSH tunnelling feature is enormously handy when trying to access a database behind a firewall. Thanks Navicat devs!

There are a number of decent and *free* database management programs out there but I found Navicat to be well worth the money. (You might think it seems like a lot but if you're spending even a few hours/week managing a DB I think Navicat is good value.) Unfortunately I'm stuck on version 8 because while the interface on 9 is much nicer, I find it crashes pretty much every time I use it. Sometimes it's because of a timeout on the server, sometimes it's just seems random. There seem to be a few buggy interface elements that pop up from time to time as well (the enum default-value menu comes to mind -- it often chooses the values of the previously selected enum field). So I'll stick with 8 for now. Hopefully 9.2 brings some stability.

Crazy stuff! I've been using Navicat for a long time now, and it proven itself an indispensable tool for managing MySQL databases. And I have lots and lots of them. Navicat does absolutely everything I need. Transfers, queries, data/structure sync, SSH/HTTP tunneling.. And support is beyond incredible! I files a crashing bug to them and got it fixed, AND the updated version of the program released in under 48hrs. I'm shocked! It is indeed an expensive tool, but considering how much time it'll save you in a long run, and hourly rate of almost any DBA/programmer who do DBs for living, the price is rather easily justifiable. Highly recommended.

This is THE product to own if you're doing MySQL work. No more myPHPAdmin crap. The power to not only create the database, but to managed it with micro edits right in the GUI is unmatched. Heavily recommend for those of you who know that time does equal money. ;-)

What's new refers to Navicat PREMIUM, not Navicat MySQL. From Navicat's site: May 20 2010 Navicat for MySQL (Mac) version 9.0.5 is now available Improvements: If the row is selected, Filter Wizard will now display the words in white color. Query Builder supports to show diagram for some incomplete statement. Bug Fixes: Crashed when getting server Information on Information View if connection failed. Improper join lines were displayed when joining multiple tables in Query Builder. Crashed when parsing some improper SQL statements. Wrong bit field default values were displayed in Table Designer for MySQL version 5.1.31 or above.

Version 9 is the update for Navicat I have been waiting for. I've used Navicat for 6+ years on both Windose and Mac. It has always had the same problem on both OS. Would randomly crash. At least 1 or 2 times a day. But with Version 9 on my Mac I have never had a crash. Definitely worth the $50 upgrade just to get rid of the random crashes. Buy it!

Could someone point me to to right direction on where to find the menu for opening a new Main window. I sometimes accidentally close the main window and cannot bring it up without restarting the entire application. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You are right, you just have to quit the program to get the window back, it's a bit stupid. Why don't you report it, I am sure they will fix it. Probably they are PC people and used to such UI glitches.

You can just click on the Navicat icon on the dock and the main window will be shown again.

@JOHN KE. Thank you. This works beautifully. I still think they should just incorporate a shortcut or into the Window menu. For now, this will do. =D

Still no Access import like the Windows version, very disappointing to see Macusers still have to put up with a crippled version. On the developers site it is almost impossible to find out what's new and why I would have to upgrade for $50,-. It's a pity, because Navicat may have some quirks, but I work with Navicat all day and overall I am very pleased.
