Changes in MySQL Connector/NET 5.2.7 (2009-07-15)

Bugs Fixed

  • The EscapeString code carried out escaping by calling string.Replace multiple times. This resulted in a performance bottleneck, as for every line a new string was allocated and another was disposed of by the garbage collector. (Bug #45699)

  • A MySQL Connector/NET test program that connected to MySQL Server using the connection string option compress=true crashed, but only when running on Mono. The program worked as expected when running on Microsoft Windows.

    This was due to a bug in Mono. MySQL Connector/NET was modified to avoid using WeakReferences in the Compressed stream class, which was causing the crash. (Bug #45463)

  • 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 IP ADDRESS/PORT.

    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.

    (Bug #45021)

  • 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. (Bug #44822)

  • The MySQL Connector/NET MySQLRoleProvider reported that there were no roles, even when roles existed. (Bug #44414)

  • After a Reference to "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Connector Net 5.2.4\Compact Framework\MySql.Data.CF.dll" was added to a Windows Mobile 5.0 project, the project then failed to build, generating a Microsoft Visual C# compiler error.

    The error generated was:

    Error 2 The type 'System.Runtime.CompilerServices.CompilerGeneratedAttribute'
    has no constructors defined MysqlTest
    Error 3 Internal Compiler Error (0xc0000005 at address 5A7E3714):
    likely culprit is 'COMPILE'.

    (Bug #42261)

  • MySQL Connector/NET generated the following exception:

    System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
          bei MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlCommand.TimeoutExpired(Object commandObject)
          bei System.Threading._TimerCallback.TimerCallback_Context(Object state)
          bei System.Threading.ExecutionContext.runTryCode(Object userData)
          code, CleanupCode backoutCode, Object userData)
          bei System.Threading.ExecutionContext.RunInternal(ExecutionContext executionContext,
          ContextCallback callback, Object state)
          bei System.Threading.ExecutionContext.Run(ExecutionContext executionContext,
          ContextCallback callback, Object state)
          bei System.Threading._TimerCallback.PerformTimerCallback(Object state)

    (Bug #40005)

  • When a TableAdapter was created on a DataSet, it was not possible to use a stored procedure with variables. The following error was generated:

    The method or operation is not implemented

    (Bug #39409)
