not a big problem but for some reason I cannot get any love from the MySQLCommunityPlugin.xojo_plugin since the 2016 version.
If I replace the plugin which comes with 2018r4 with the one from 2016 I can connect to my "MySQL Community server (GPL)" perfectly.
Server is 5.7.24
If I don't replace it and try it will connect to the database fine but when i do a select I get the error
"Lost connection to MySQL server during query"
This is using the same program, same username and password, same database, the only difference is the plugin.
