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 here 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)
- 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)
