Subject:MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.0 alpha has been released
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users,

MySQL for Visual Studio is a product including all of the Visual Studio
integration previously available as part of Connector/Net. The 1.2.0
version is an alpha release of this product that intends to introduce
users to the new features in this version.

This release is not feature complete and there are significant
limitations but it should be stable enough for users to understand the
new features and how we expect them to work.  As is the case with all
non-GA releases, it should not be used in any production environment.
It is appropriate for use with MySQL server versions 5.0-5.6.

As this is an alpha version the MySQL for Visual Studio product can be
downloaded only by using the product standalone installer at this link
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/windows/visualstudio/

The 1.2.0 version introduces the following new features:

- A new MySQL Project Wizard for Windows Forms.
- A new MySQL Project Wizard for ASP.NET MVC 3.
- A new option in web configuration tool for the ASP.NET Personalization
   Provider (this feature requires Connector/Net 6.9).
- A new option in web configuration tool for the ASP.NET Site Map
   Provider (this feature requires Connector/Net 6.9).


MySQL Project Wizard for Windows Forms
--------------------------------------
The Windows Forms Project Wizard is available at the Visual Studio New
Project dialog, either at the MySql category or by filtering by name.
This wizard automates the generation of a simple .NET Windows Forms
Application with a form that is connected to a MySql data source.

MySQL Project Wizard for ASP.NET MVC 3
--------------------------------------
The ASP.NET MVC Project Wizard is available at the Visual Studio New
Project dialog, either at the MySql category or by filtering by name.
This wizard automates the generation of an ASP.NET application that
includes the MySQL Membership configuration and set up to a new or
existing MySQL database. Optionally the application can also use the
MySQL Role and MySQL Profile providers.


New option in web configuration tool for the ASP.NET Personalization 
Provider
----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Personalization provider allows to store personalization state-state
data regarding the content and layout of Web Parts pages-generated by
the Web Parts personalization service using MySQL as a data source. This
feature requires Connector/Net 6.9.

New option in web configuration tool for the ASP.NET Site Map Provider
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Site Map provider allows to show a hierarchical list of links that
describe the structure of a site. This feature requires Connector/Net 6.9.
