MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.5 has been released




Dear MySQL users,

MySQL for Visual Studio is a product that includes all of the Visual
Studio integration functionality to create and manage MySQL databases
when developing .NET applications. This is a maintenance release for
1.2.x.  It is feature complete and is suitable for production
environments.

This version is appropriate for using with MySQL server versions
5.5-5.6.  The 5.7 server version is also compatible but is not fully
supported, thus it should be used at your own discretion.

As this is a maintenance release of the MySQL for Visual Studio product,
it can be downloaded by using the product standalone installer at this
link http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/windows/visualstudio/ or with the
MySQL Windows Installer.

Changes in MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.5 (2015-10-29)

   Known Limitation:

   Item templates do not work correctly with MySQL Server 5.7.x, as it
   prevents the creation of an Entity Framework model.

   Functionality Added or Changed

     * Added the Entity Framework option to the MySQL Website
       Configuration dialog for web projects, so Entity
       Framework version 5 or 6 can be used with a MySQL
       database provider. These automatically add the
       configuration/references needed to the web.config file
       and the project itself. Also, all available configuration
       options are now listed in the dialog.

     * Project Templates were replaced with Item Templates.
       The Project Templates option was removed from the plugin
       toolbar, and from the Project menu, in order to add the
       Item Templates feature with two options: MySQL MVC Item
       and MySQL Windows Forms Item, which are available as a
       context menu for existing projects. They add new windows
       forms or MVC controllers/views connected to MySQL.

   Bugs Fixed

     * The Installer could not uninstall MySQL for Visual Studio
       if Visual Studio was uninstalled first. (Bug #21953055,
       Bug #71226)

     * In v1.2.4, the Launch Workbench and Open MySQL Utilities
       Console toolbar buttons were disabled. (Bug #21495692)

     * The "Templates" could not be uninstalled via Add/Remove
       Programs. Because Project Templates were replaced by Item
       Templates, this is no longer a concern. (Bug #21488922,
       Bug #77802)

     * The dataset designer wizard was not showing the stored
       procedure parameters when creating a "TableAdapter" using
       existing stored procedures for the "Select" command.
       Also, the stored procedure command had an "error" thus
       causing the dataset to not be created. (Bug #20233133,
       Bug #74195)
