Subject:MySQL Connector/Net 1.0.1 beta 2 has been released.
View as plain text  
Hi,

MySQL Connector/Net 1.0.1, a new version of the fully-managed, ADO.Net
provider for the popular MySQL database system.
 
Version 1.0.1 is the second beta release of the original ByteFX MySQL
provider acquired earlier this year.  This release is suitable for use
with any MySQL version including MySQL-4.1 or MySQL-5.0.

It is now available in source and binary form from the Connector/Net
download pages at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/net/1.0.html
and mirror sites (note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at
this point of time - if you can't find this version on some mirror,
please try again later or choose another download site.)

========================= Attention ======================================
During the final QA process for 1.0.1, a problem was discovered where data
packets larger than 16M are not handled properly when the connection is
using compression.  There is no need to file bug reports on this issue as
the test suite already identifies this as a problem.
==========================================================================
