Hi all,

MySQL Workbench 6.3.8 has been released with some changes that needs
attention and further testing.

According to mysql-connector-c++ 1.1.7 release notes [1], it requires
JSON data type, which is now added into mysql-connector-c++-1.1.7, but
since MariaDB 10.0.x used in 14.2 doesn't have JSON support yet (it will
be included in 10.2.x), i patched the mysql-connector-c++ to disable
JSON support and it allows mysql-workbench to built normally.

Also since MySQL and MariaDB diverges from time to time, there are
features added in MySQL and may not yet available in MariaDB.
mysql-workbench has a check for this in the source code, so i had to
remove the check manually.

So far, i have been able to build the new mysql-workbench in current and
in stable (14.2) and found no issue, but since MySQL Workbench has so
many features, i may not notice any side effects due to above changes.

I have pushed all the changes in mysql-workbench-review branch for
testing before it will be merged into master branch in the next public
