MySQL Connector/NET 6.7.8 has been released




Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/NET 6.7.8, a new version of the all-managed .NET driver
for MySQL has been released.  This is the GA, feature complete. It is
recommended for production environments.  It is appropriate for use with
MySQL server versions 5.5-5.7.

It is now available in source and binary form from
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/net/#downloadsand mirror sites
(note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point-if you
can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or choose
another download site.)

The 6.7 version of MySQL Connector/NET brings the following new
features:
-  WinRT Connector.
-  Load Balancing support.
-  Entity Framework 5.0 support.
-  Memcached support for Innodb Memcached plugin.
-  This version also splits the product in two: from now on, starting
   version 6.7, Connector/NET will include only the former Connector/NET
   ADO.NET driver, Entity Framework and ASP.NET providers (Core
   libraries of MySql.Data, MySql.Data.Entity & MySql.Web). While all
   the former product Visual Studio integration (Design support,
   Intellisense, Debugger) are available as part of MySQL Windows
   Installer under the name "MySQL for Visual Studio".

WinRT Connector
-------------------------------------------
Now you can write MySql data access apps in Windows Runtime (aka Store
Apps) using the familiar API of Connector/NET for .NET.

Load Balancing Support
-------------------------------------------
Now you can setup a Replication or Cluster configuration in the backend,
and Connector/NET will balance the load of queries among all servers
making up the backend topology.

Entity Framework 5.0
-------------------------------------------
Connector/NET is now compatible with EF 5, including special features of
EF 5 like spatial types.

Memcached
-------------------------------------------
Just setup Innodb memcached plugin and use Connector/NET new APIs to
establish a client to MySQL 5.6 server's memcached daemon.
