Subject:Connector/Net 1.0.3 gamma is released
View as plain text  

MySQL Connector/Net 1.0.3, a new version of the fully-managed, ADO.Net
provider for the popular MySQL database system has been released.
Version 1.0.3 is the second gamma 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
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.)

This second gamma release was made to get feedback from the community on bug
fixes and changes regarding handling of zero date time values.  We plan to
have the known issues resolved for the GA release.

========================= Known Issues ==================================
There is no need to file bug reports on these issues.  They are known and
are being worked on.  Thanks.

1.  There is a known problem 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.
2.  There is also a known problem with certain queries executing over a
named pipe connection.
