mysql connector/net 6.0.3 GA has been released

MySQL Connector/Net 6.0.3, a new version of the all-managed .NET driver for MySQL has been released.  This is the first GA release of the new 6.0 connector and introduces several new features and enhancements.  This release is approved for use in all scenarios and officially supports MySQL servers 4.1 and higher.   We had three major goals with this release:  speed, entity framework support, and a better Visual Studio experience.  I'm happy to report that we have met all three.

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.)

Fixes from 6.0.2

  • fixed broken connection prompting
  • fixed installer that was no longer referencing the right folders for Visual Studio assemblies [bug #44141]
  • made integer column types returned with table and column collections use the same data type when referencing MySql 4.1 servers and MySql 5.0+ servers (bug #44123)
  • lots of unreported bug fixes found in our newly rewritten DDEX provider


New features and improvements

  • Massive speedups.  We have increased the speed of the provider.  In many situations it now matches or exceeds the speed of the native C connector.
  • SQL tokenizing has been improved dramatically.  Not only is it substantially faster (approx 40%) it also now uses a completely rewritten tokenizer that supports all types of stored procedure comments.
  • Added UDF schema collection
  • Implement initial Entity Framework support
  • Improved Visual Studio integration


Visual Studio improvements

We have completely rewritten our Visual Studio integration bits and are delivering several exciting features with it.  Here's a look at some of those features:

1.  Now uses the same toolbars and commands as SQL Server so the integration is much more seamless.
2.  Uses the native code editor which means code splitting and syntax highlighting.
3.  Change script generation
4.  And many more smaller features.....

Enjoy!

  12. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It�s the old what goes around comes around routine. Did you acquired lots of links and I see lots of trackbacks??
