MySQL Connector/NET 7.0.3 m2 development has been released

MySQL Connector/Net 7.0.3 is the second development release of MySQL Connector/Net  7.0 series.

MySQL Connector/Net 7.0 adds support for the new X DevAPI which enables 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 this User’s Guide. For more information about how the X DevAPI is implemented in Connector/Net, please check the official product documentation.

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 this chapter at the reference manual.
