Might be useful to support other DB-engines forked from MySQL, like Percona, MariaDB, etc with their native features. At the same time some native MySQL features may not be supported by these engines that causes error messages while using Heidi with these forks.

this is not the same issue as issue #964 as these are forks with peculiarities, but not really other engines

I have no Percona running here. If you tell me how Percona is reporting its version string I will probably be able to add a different icon. Is there an icon?

show variables like 'version%'



Variable_name Value
version 5.5.13-55
version_comment Percona Server (GPL), Release 20.4
version_compile_machine i686
version_compile_os Linux



As for icon I belive you can use favicon http://www.percona.com/static/images/percona_favicon.ico

Thanks. Is that "percona" string not fetchable via

mysql_get_server_info(FHandle)

?
Fetching it via SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'version%' will force me to add an extra query to the startup process, just to see if it's Percona or not.

You can see what mysql_get_server_info() returns by moving your mouse to the status bar panel which says "MySQL 5.x.x", which then pops up some more details. Please report here what it does say. Thanks.

Popup doesn't say anything about Percona either.

As for extra query, now there are two queries fetching variables, maybe they can be reduced to one:

SHOW VARIABLES WHERE Variable_name IN('hostname','version_comment','version_compile_os')

That WHERE... syntax would fail on older MySQL servers (was introduced in 5.0.3). Instead I'll just use SHOW VARIABLES and use it also for the host/variables tab.
