mysql connector/net 6.0.2 beta has been released

Hi,
MySQL Connector/Net 6.0.2, a new version of the all-managed .NET driver for MySQL has been released.  This is a beta release and is intended to introduce you to the new features and enhancements we are planning.  This release should not be used in a production environment.

This release was quickly pushed out due to a problem that caused 6.0.1 to not register with Visual Studio correctly.  We also made a small correction to a previous bug fix.  SQL generated from entity framework for stored procedures will now not directly reference the schema.  This allows the model to move to a different database without need of change.  We had previously made this change for tables but failed to do so for procedures.

It is now available in source and binary form from [http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/net/6.0.html] 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.)

Please take this version for a test drive and let us know what works and what doesn't.

  5. Hello,

    I've just upgraded Connector.Net from 5.2.5 to 6.0.3, and my aplication now crashes. Connector.Net wants to consider a binary(16) field as a Guid.

    My table definition:
    CREATE TABLE `file` (
    `ID` int(11) NOT NULL,
    `file_name` varchar(256) COLLATE latin1_bin NOT NULL,
    `signature` binary(16) DEFAULT NULL,
    PRIMARY KEY (`ID`)
    ) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 COLLATE=latin1_bin;

    What I do:
    [open Connection with no 'exotic' option, create DbDataReader, etc.]
    reader.GetDataTypeName(2) ==> "BINARY(16)"
    reader.GetFieldType(2).ToString() ==> "System.Guid" !!!
    reader.GetBytes(2, 0, null, 0, 0) ==> MySqlException: GetBytes can only be called on binary columns

    But why on earth is it automatically trying to convert a 16-byte array into a Guid? A too fast shortcurt in 6.0.3 type recognition routine? 5.2.5 was reading this as a byte array...
