Online API reference documentation is now available for MySQL Connector/NET. This new format replaces the files compressed and deployed in a binary format with the extension .CHM (Compiled HTML) that previously shipped with each connector release.
UseProcedureBodiesconnection-string option was removed. Instead, the
CheckParametersoption can be used to check stored parameters against the server.
EF Core: Character set and collation now are independently configurable in EF Core models. The values can be set at both the entity and entity-property levels by using either data annotation (new attributes) or new methods added to the code-first fluent API using the
MySql.Data.EntityFrameworkCore.Extensionsnamespace. Specifically, the new items added for setting character set and collation are:
Assemblies within NuGet packages were not fully signed. (Bug #26739307)
EF Core: Inserting a date of '0000-00-00' into a column when also setting
Convert Zero Datetime=Truein the connection string of a class that derives from
DbContextproduced an exception, instead of performing the expected conversion. (Bug #26552753, Bug #87120)
EF Core: Foreign key relations were not consistently created within the entity model generated by scaffolding a MySQL database. (Bug #26339430)
MySql.Web.Security.MySqlWebSecurity.CreateUserAndAccountmethod with valid arguments, including
additionalUserAttributesas an object with key/value pairs, returned an out-of-range exception. Thanks to Stein Setvik for contributing to the fix. (Bug #25046364)
The default character set and encoding were not set properly when making a connection to MySQL 5.6 and 5.7 servers configured to use the
utf8character set. (Bug #23257011)
