Changes in MySQL Connector/Net 6.9.6 (2015-03-04)

   Bugs Fixed

     * The MySqlSimpleRoleProvider.RoleExists method would
       return true instead of false. (Bug #20325391, Bug #73880,
       Bug #75397)

     * With the Driver.GetTimeZoneOffset method, the TimeZone
       offset was not calculated correctly, and instead it was
       always set to 0. In other words, this caused the time
       zone to always be set to UTC. (Bug #20200662, Bug #74134)

     * With Entity Framework 6, passing in a string reference to
       the StartWith clause would return incorrect results. (Bug
       #20129927, Bug #20334228, Bug #20334274, Bug #74918)

     * Repeatedly calling the
       User method could leave open MySQL connections. (Bug
       #20109419, Bug #75662)

     * The GetTimeZoneOffset method would return an incorrect
       value depending on the server Time and TimeZone, as it
       did not take into account the day into the context of the
       time difference. (Bug #20065691, Bug #20362040, Bug
       #20362036, Bug #74905)

     * The uninstaller process would fail and not remove the
       connector. (Bug #19485102, Bug #73677)

     * A connection string that included Chinese characters for
       a database or uid property would emit the following
       exception; "MySqlException: Unknown database '???'". (Bug
       #18141356, Bug #20508130, Bug #70041)

     * Loading two nested collections could be reported as an
       invalid SQL query as MySQL Connector/Net only generated a
       partial query. (Bug #18049862, Bug #20409538, Bug
       #20409528, Bug #70941)
