This is the first post-GA release, fixing recently discovered bugs.
If a certain socket exception occurred when trying to establish a MySQL database connection, MySQL Connector/Net displayed an exception message that appeared to be unrelated to the underlying problem. This masked the problem and made diagnosing problems more difficult.
For example, if, when establishing a database connection using TCP/IP, Windows on the local machine allocated an ephemeral port that conflicted with a socket address still in use, then Windows/.NET would throw a socket exception with the following error text:
Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted
However, MySQL Connector/Net masked this socket exception and displayed an exception with the following text:
Unable to connect to any of the specified MySQL hosts.
A SQL query string containing an escaped backslash caused an exception to be generated:
Index and length must refer to a location within the string. Parameter name: length at System.String.InternalSubStringWithChecks(Int32 startIndex, Int32 length, Boolean fAlwaysCopy) at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlTokenizer.NextParameter() at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.Statement.InternalBindParameters(String sql, MySqlParameterCollection parameters, MySqlPacket packet) at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.Statement.BindParameters() at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.PreparableStatement.Execute() at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior behavior) at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()
The Microsoft Visual Studio solution file
MySQL-VS2005.sln was invalid. Several
projects could not be loaded and thus it was not possible to
build MySQL Connector/Net from source.
The Data Set editor generated an error when attempts were made to modify insert, update or delete commands:
Error in WHERE clause near '@'. Unable to parse query text.
The DataReader in MySQL Connector/Net 6.0.3 considered a BINARY(16) field as a GUID with a length of 16. (Bug #44507)
When creating a new DataSet the following error was generated:
Failed to open a connection to database. Cannot load type with name 'MySQL.Data.VisualStudio.StoredProcedureColumnEnumerator'
The MySQL Connector/Net MySQLRoleProvider reported that there were no roles, even when roles existed. (Bug #44414)
MySQL Connector/Net was missing the capability to validate the server's certificate when using encryption. This made it possible to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack against the connection, which defeated the security provided by SSL. (Bug #38700)
