MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.6 has been released




Dear MySQL users,

The MySQL Windows Experience Team is proud to announce the release
of MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.6.

This is a maintenance release for 1.2.x. 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 1.2.6 (2016-01-07)

   Bugs Fixed

     * With MySQL for Visual Studio installed, attempting to
       create MSSQL connections would fail and throw an
       exception. (Bug #22122881, Bug #77441)

     * The Tools, Extensions and Updates, Installed, Tools
       window always reported "1.0.0" as the current MySQL for
       Visual Studio version number. (Bug #22114385)

     * Executing Generate Database from Model from an existing
       Entity Framework model would throw an exception related
       to an error with the T4 template file, when then aborted
       the creation of the database. The Connector/Net Entity
       Framework assembly (MySql.Data.Entity.EF6.dll) path was
       fixed in the MySQL T4 template file (SSDLToMySQL.tt).
       (Bug #20234532, Bug #74388)

     * With Visual Studio 2012, generating a database from a
       model would fail and throw an exception. However,
       clicking OK after the error would cause the action to
       succeed. (Bug #18181649)
