MySQL Connector/Net 7.0.7 m6 has been released

Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/Net 7.0.7 is the fourth development release that expands
cross-platform support to Linux and OS X when using Microsoft's .NET Core
framework. Now, .NET developers can use the X DevAPI with .NET Core and
Entity Framework Core (EF Core) 1.0 to create server applications that run
on Windows, Linux and OS X. We are very excited about this change and
really look forward to your feedback on it!

MySQL Connector/Net 7.0.7 is also the sixth development release of MySQL
Connector/Net to add support for the new X DevAPI.  The X DevAPI enables
application developers to write code that combines the strengths of the
relational and document models using a modern, NoSQL-like syntax that
does not assume previous experience writing traditional SQL.

To learn more about how to write applications using the X DevAPI, see
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/x-devapi-userguide/en/index.html. For more
information about how the X DevAPI is implemented in Connector/Net, see

Please note that the X DevAPI requires at least MySQL Server version
5.7.12 or higher with the X Plugin enabled. For general documentation
about how to get started using MySQL as a document store, see

     * X DevAPI: Connection string syntax is now identical to
       the URI scheme, which provides a cross-product syntax for
       defining the connection data to establish a session.

     * X DevAPI: Added new methods to the Schema class to
       create, alter, and drop views. Usage notes include:

          + Views created with the
            Schema.CreateView().DefinedAs() method chain are
            supported for use with the table Select method, but
            are not supported with the collection Find method.

          + A collection view created in the database by some
            mechanism other than the CreateView method is not
            defined as a view by Table.IsView.

          + Query objects assigned to a view with the CreateView
            method are static, even when the underlying query
