MySQL Connector/NET 8.0.15 has been released

Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/NET 8.0.15 is the third version to support
Entity Framework Core 2.1 and the fifth general availability release
of MySQL Connector/NET to add support for the new X DevAPI, which
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 For more information about how the X DevAPI is implemented in Connector/NET, see NuGet packages provide functionality at a project level. To get the
full set of features available in Connector/NET such as availability
in the GAC, integration with Visual Studio’s Entity Framework Designer
and integration with MySQL for Visual Studio, installation through
the MySQL Installer or the stand-alone MSI is required.

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