View as plain text  

MySQL Connector/Net 5.0.9, a new version of the all-managed .NET driver 
for MySQL has been released.  This release is an update to the existing 
production-quality 5.0 series. 

We plan for this to be the last release in the 5.0 series.  We will only 
be updating the 5.0 product in the event a "data-loss" type bug is 
discovered.  We encourage all new products to use the new 5.1 product.

Version 5.0.9 works with all versions of MySQL including MySQL-4.1,  
MySQL-5.0, MySQL-5.1 beta or the MySQL-6.0 Alpha.

It is now available in source and binary form from 
[] 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.)

== Features or behavior changes ==
  - added implementation of MySqlCommandBuilder methods QuoteIdentifier 
and UnquoteIdentifier
    (bug #35492)

== Bugs fixed ==
  - Fixed problem where fields that were blobs but did not include the 
BLOB flag were treated
    as binary when they should have been treated as text.  (Bug #30233)
  - Changed from using Array.Copy to Buffer.BlockCopy in 
MySqlDataReader.GetBytes.  This
    helps with memory usage as we expect the source and destination 
arrays to not be overlapping.
    (Bug #31090)
  - Fixed problem that prevented commands from being executed from the 
state change
    handler.  Not sure why you would want to do this but...  (bug #30964)
  - Fixed issue where column name metadata was not using the charset 
given on the connection string
    (Bug #31185)
  - Fixed problem with installer where the installation might report a 
failure to
    remove the performance counters if the performance counter category 
had already
    been removed for some reason   
  - Fixed problem with installer where attempting to install over a 
failed uninstall
    could leave multiple clients registered in machine.config.  (Bug 
  - Fixed problem with connection string caching where our collection 
class was
    using case insensitive semantics and this causes cases where a user 
    used the wrong case for a user id and then fixed it to still get 
access denied
    errors. (Bug #31433)   
  - improved the speed of load data local infile significantly   
  - fixed MySqlDateTime.ToString() to properly return the date value 
(Bug #32010)   
  - fixed problem where string parameters who have their size set after 
their value could cause exceptions
    (Bug #32094)   
  - fixed problem where old code was preventing creating parameter 
objects with non-input direction using
    just a constructor (Bug #32093)    
  - fixed problem where a syntax error in a set of batch statements 
could leave the data adapter in a state
    that appears hung (bug #31930)
  - fixed the MySqlException class to set the server error code in the 
Data[] hash so that
    DbProviderFactory users can access the server error code (Bug 
  - fixed problem where changing the connection string of a connection 
to one that changes
    the parameter marker after the connection had been assigned to a 
command but before
    the connection is opened can cause parameters to not be found (bug 
  - some fixes to cancel and timeout operations so that they are more 
  - fixed problem where cloning a parameter that has not yet had its 
type set would yeild
    a cloned paramter that would no longer infer it's type from the 
value set 

Enjoy and thanks for the support!
