Entity Framework is the name given to a set of technologies that support the development of data-oriented software applications. MySQL Connector/NET supports Entity Framework 6.0 (EF6 or EF 6.4) and Entity Framework Core (EF Core), which is the most recent framework available to .NET developers who work with MySQL data using .NET objects.
The following table identifies each Entity Framework release and shows which Connector/NET 8.1 series supports the release. Backward compatibility of each feature set is determined by the framework rather than by Connector/NET.
