Subject:MySql Connector/NET 6.7.4 GA has been released
View as plain text  

MySQL Connector/Net 6.7.4, a new version of the all-managed .NET driver 
for MySQL has been released.  This is the GA, is feature complete. It is 
recommended for production environments.  It is appropriate for use with 
MySQL server versions 5.0-5.7.

  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-if you 
can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or choose 
another download site.)

The 6.7 version of MySQL Connector/Net brings the following new features:
-  WinRT Connector.
-  Load Balancing support.
-  Entity Framework 5.0 support.
-  Memcached support for Innodb Memcached plugin.
-  This version also splits the product in two: from now on, starting 
version 6.7, Connector/NET will include only the former Connector/NET 
ADO.NET driver, Entity Framework and ASP.NET providers (Core libraries 
of MySql.Data, MySql.Data.Entity & MySql.Web). While all the former 
product Visual Studio integration (Design support, Intellisense, 
Debugger) are available as part of MySql Windows Installer under the 
name "MySql for Visual Studio".

  WinRT Connector
Now you can write MySql data access apps in Windows Runtime (aka Store 
Apps) using the familiar API of Connector/NET for .NET.

  Load Balancing Support
  Now you can setup a Replication or Cluster configuration in the 
backend, and Connector/NET will balance the load of queries among all 
servers making up the backend topology.

  Entity Framework 5.0
  Connector/NET is now compatible with EF 5, including special features 
of EF 5 like spatial types.

  Just setup Innodb memcached plugin and use Connector/NET new APIs to 
establish a client to MySql 5.6 server's memcached daemon.

- Fix for Entity Framework when inserts data having Identity columns 
(Oracle bug #16494585).
- Fix for Connector/NET cannot read data from a MySql table using 
UTF-16/UTF-32 (MySql bug #69169, Oracle bug #16776818).

- Fix for database objects with 'dbo' prefix when using automatic 
migrations in Entity Framework 5.0 (Oracle bug #16909439).
- Fix for bug IIS application pool reset worker process causes website 
to crash (Oracle bug #16909237, Mysql Bug #67665).
