Worked Over by MySql Workbench?

Just went through angina after installing the latest version of MySql Workbench 8.0. Kept getting bad handshake errors connecting to a remote MySql database. Turns out that data base still runs on an antiquated version of MySql 5 and Workbench 8 is a typical liberal nanny state interface program that doesn't like conservative older database servers and feels it knows better than everyone else and that anyone who wants the benefits of its use better provide newer databases to use with it. Welllllll, upgrading that particular database just isn't in the cards this minute. Connecting remotely with it is. End shot bottom line, went back to Workbench 6.3.10 and SCREW Workbench 8.
