MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.5 has been released




Dear Users,

The MySQL Windows Experience Team is proud to announce the release of
MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.5.

This is a maintenance release for the 1.2 release series. It can be
used for production environments.

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.

MySQL for Visual Studio is installed using the MySQL Installer for
Windows which comes in 2 versions:

   . Full (150 MB) which includes a complete set of MySQL products with
   their binaries included in the downloaded bundle.

   . Web (1.5 MB - a network install) which will just pull MySQL for
   Visual Studio over the web and install it when run.


You can download MySQL Installer from our official Downloads page at
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/.


MySQL for Visual Studio can also be downloaded by using the product
standalone installer found at
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/windows/visualstudio/.


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

This section documents all changes and bug fixes applied to MySQL for
Visual Studio since the release of 1.2.5. Several new features were
added to the 1.2.x branch, for more information see the section below
called: What Is New In MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.


   Known Limitations:

      . 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 Project Items.
        The Project Templates option was removed from the plugin
        toolbar, and from the Project menu, in order to add the Project
        Items feature with two options: MySQL New MVC Item and

        MySQL New Windows Form, which are available on the Add New
        Item dialog when adding a new Project Item. 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 installer feature could not be uninstalled via
        Add/Remove Programs. Because Project Templates were
        replaced by Project Items, 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)

     column in the table with navigation controls and that allows CRUD
     operations.All controls can include validations for numeric and
     DateTime data types.

   . Grid: A form with a data grid view that contains navigation
     controls.

   . Master-detail: A form with a single control layout for the Parent
     table and a data grid view to navigate through child table's data.

model entity containing a MySQL table or view. The MVC versions
supported by this wizard are 3 when using Visual Studio 2010 or 2012,

The generation of the MVC items is done by creating an Entity Framework
