MySQL Connector/Net 6.4.0 Alpha has been released

MySQL Connector/Net 6.4.0, a new version of the all-managed .NET driver for MySQL has been released. This release is of Alpha quality and is intended for testing and exposure to new features. We strongly urge you to not use this release in a production environment.

Version 6.4.0 is intended for use with versions of MySQL from 5.0 - 5.5

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.)

New features in this release (please see release notes for more information)

Windows Authentication
This release includes our new support for Windows authentication when connecting to MySQL Server 5.5.

Table Caching
We are also introducing a new feature called table caching. This feature makes it possible to cache the rows of slow changing tables on the client side.

We are also including some SQL generation improvements related to our entity framework provider.

Enjoy and thanks for the support!
