View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users,

The MySQL Windows Experience Team is proud to announce the release
of MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.8.

This is a maintenance release for 1.2.x. It can be used for
production environments.

MySQL for Visual Studio is a product that includes all of the
Visual Studio integration functionality to create and manage
MySQL databases when developing .NET applications.

MySQL for Visual Studio is installed using the MySQL Installer
for Windows which comes in 2 versions:
    * Full (386.6 MB) which includes a complete set of MySQL products
      with their binaries included in the downloaded bundle.
    * Web (1.7 MB - a network install) which will just pull MySQL
      for Visual Studio over the web and install it when run.

You can download MySQL Installer from our official Downloads page at

MySQL for Visual Studio can also be downloaded by using the product
standalone installer found at

Changes in MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.8 (2018-05-04, General

      * Functionality Added or Changed

      * Bugs Fixed

Functionality Added or Changed

      * When Microsoft Visual Studio receives a request to
        register (or unregister) MySQL for Visual Studio
        the IDE during the installation, Visual Studio might
        execute the command properly if the host is running
        Windows 7. This fix identifies when Visual Studio
        not register MySQL for Visual Studio as requested
        then provides an alert to perform the registration
        manually from the Developer Command Prompt for
        Studio using the following command:

devenv /updateconfiguration /log

        (Bug #27365261, Bug #87902)

      * MySQL for Visual Studio now supports the MySQL 8.0
        release series (requires Connector/Net 6.9.12,
6.10.7, or
        8.0.11) including:

           + MySQL data dictionary, which
             tables rather than
tables in the mysql database (see
             MySQL Data Dictionary

           + The caching_sha2_password
authentication plugin
             introduced in MySQL
8.0 (see Caching SHA-2 Pluggable

           In addition, MySQL for Visual Studio now
requires that
           .NET Framework 4.5.2 (or later) be
installed for use
           within Visual Studio 2012 and
Visual Studio 2013.

Bugs Fixed

      * The Website Configuration Tool was unable to add an
        ADO.NET entity data model to an ADO.NET web
        successfully. In addition to aligning the web.config
        with the installed version of Connector/Net, this
        also disables the Entity Framework 5 selection when
        installed connector no longer includes a provider
for EF5
        (Connector/Net 6.10 and higher). (Bug #27593219)

      * Queries made with a valid MySQL connection received no
        response from the server. (Bug #27584991)

      * When the MySQL for Visual Studio parser was unable to
        parse an SQL statement, it generated an unhandled
        exception that caused Visual Studio to exit
        This fix enables the parser to handle exceptions
        and updates the parser to include support for CREATE
        syntax in the MySQL 8.0 release series. (Bug

      * The version for the MySql.Web assembly was incorrectly
        extracted, which prevented the assembly from loading
        properly and the MySQL Website Configuration Tool
        launching. (Bug #27450530)

      * Attempting to open the MySQL Web Configuration Tool, with
        MySQL Connector/Net and MySQL for Visual Studio
        prerequisites installed properly, displayed an error
        message instead of opening the tool. (Bug #27365141,
