View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/NET 6.10.8 is the fifth GA release with .NET Core
now supporting various connection-string options and MySQL 8.0 server

To download MySQL Connector/NET 6.10.8 GA, see the "Generally Available
(GA) Releases" tab at

Changes in Connector/NET 6.10.8 (2018-08-14, General Availability)

Functionality Added or Changed

      * Optimistic locking for database-generated fields was
        improved with the inclusion of the [ConcurrencyCheck,
        attribute. Thanks to Tony Ohagan for the patch. (Bug
        #28095165, Bug #91064)

      * All recent additions to .NET Core 2.0 now are compatible
        with the Connector/NET 6.10 implementation.

      * With the inclusion of the Functions.Like extended method,
        scalar-function mapping, and table-splitting
        capabilities, Entity Framework Core 2.0 is fully

Bugs Fixed

      * EF Core: An invalid syntax error was generated when a new
        property (defined as numeric, has a default value, and is
        not a primary key) was added to an entity that already
        contained a primary-key column with the AUTO_INCREMENT
        attribute. This fix validates that the entity property
        (column) is a primary key first before adding the
        attribute. (Bug #28293927)

      * EF Core: The implementation of some methods required to
        scaffold an existing database were incomplete. (Bug
        #27898343, Bug #90368)

      * The Entity Framework Core implementation did not render
        accented characters correctly on bases with different
        UTF-8 encoding. Thanks to Kleber kleberksms for the
        patch. (Bug #27818822, Bug #90316)

      * The Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore assembly (with EF Core
        2.0) was not loaded and the absence generated an error
        when the application project was built with any version
        of .NET Framework. This fix ensures the following

           + EF Core 1.1 with .NET Framework 4.5.2 only

           + EF Core 2.0 with .NET Framework 4.6.1 or later
        (Bug #27815706, Bug #90306)

      * Attempts to create a new foreign key from within an
        application resulted in an exception when the key was
        generated by a server in the MySQL 8.0 release series.
        (Bug #27715069)

      * A variable of type POINT when used properly within an
        application targeting MySQL 8.0 generated an SQL syntax
        error. (Bug #27715007)

      * The case-sensitive lookup of field ordinals was
        initialized using case-insensitive comparison logic. This
        fix removes the original case-sensitive lookup. (Bug
        #27285641, Bug #88950)

      * The TreatTinyAsBoolean connection option was ignored when
        the MySqlCommand.Prepare() method was called. (Bug
        #27113566, Bug #88472)

      * The MySql.Data.Types.MySqlGeometry constructor called
        with an array of bytes representing an empty geometry
        collection generated an ArgumentOutOfRangeException
        exception, rather than creating the type as expected.
        Thanks to Peet Whittaker for the patch. (Bug #26421346,
        Bug #86974)

      * Slow connections made to MySQL were improved by reducing
        the frequency and scope of operating system details
        required by the server to establish and maintain a
        connection. (Bug #22580399, Bug #80030)

      * All columns of type TINYINT(1) stopped returning the
        expected Boolean value after the connector encountered a
        NULL value in any column of this type. Thanks to David
        Warner for the patch. (Bug #22101727, Bug #78917)
