View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users,

  MySQL Connector/Net 6.8.5 is a maintenance release for the 6.8.x
  series of the .NET driver for MySQL. It can be used for production

  It is appropriate for use with MySQL server versions 5.5-5.7.

  It is now available in source and binary form from
  (note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point-if you
  can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or choose
  another download site.)

  Changes in MySQL Connector/Net 6.8.5       (2015-03-03)

     Bugs Fixed

      * With Entity Framework 6, passing in a string reference to
        the StartWith clause would return incorrect results. (Bug
        #20129927, Bug #20334228, Bug #20334274, Bug #74918)

      * The GetTimeZoneOffset method would return an incorrect
        value depending on the server Time and TimeZone, as it
        did not take into account the day into the context of the
        time difference. (Bug #20065691, Bug #20362040, Bug
        #20362036, Bug #74905)

      * A memory leak was fixed. (Bug #19467233, Bug #19474480,
        Bug #19474510, Bug #73122)

      * The CreateUser function did not trim whitespace before
        storing values into the database, while MembershipUser
        did return trimmed values. The trimming is now performed
        before the data is stored. (Bug #19453313, Bug #19459461,
        Bug #19459436, Bug #73411)

      * Queries with collations using the _utf16le character set
        were not read correctly and instead yielded a "not
        presented key in dictionary" error. (Bug #19446614, Bug
        #19355906, Bug #19446571, Bug #72737)

      * MySQL Connector/Net would sometimes attempt to call
        stored procedures when it should not. (Bug #19446554, Bug
        #19446523, Bug #19325120, Bug #72736)

      * A connection string that included Chinese characters for
        a database or uid property would emit the following
        exception; "MySqlException: Unknown database '???'". (Bug
        #18141356, Bug #20508130, Bug #70041)

      * Loading two nested collections could be reported as an
        invalid SQL query as MySQL Connector/Net only generated a
        partial query. (Bug #18049862, Bug #20409538, Bug
        #20409528, Bug #70941)
