MySQL Workbench Fork?


I convinced my boss to use MariaDB for a new project but it appears
that the workbench is incompatible with new features of MariaDB.  I've
looked at the alternatives listed on the website, but they are all
either proprietary or Windows only.  I just can't sell my boss on
switching to MariaDB without workbench.

Free software isn't free, but I think Workbench is a big driver of
commercial and enterprise use.  It's easy to kvetch from the outside,
but I feel as though MariaDB has just lost some ground.

Has management considered forking Workbench?

Thank you,
