Changes in MySQL Connector/Net 6.8.8 (2016-07-01)
Functionality Added or Changed
* Added TLS support for TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2 when connecting
to MySQL Server 5.7.
* Improvements were made to how the connector handles
aborted connections. (Bug #23346197, Bug #80997)
* With Entity Framework 6, building a table with a primary
key would not enclose the key name in quotes, which
caused a syntax error. (Bug #22696180, Bug #22696207, Bug
* The connector was not disposing the transaction returned
by DBContext.Database.BeginTransaction() when exiting a
using code block. (Bug #22514355, Bug #22514363)
* The connector did not attempt to enumerate stored
procedures via mysql.proc(). Instead it looked up stored
procedures in INFORMATION_SCHEMA.ROUTINES. This could
have led to performance degradation in certain scenarios.
