Functionality Added or Changed

  • Support for .NET Core 2.0 and .NET Standard 2.0 has been added (.NET Core 1.1 support continues). With .NET Core 2.0, most of the common ADO.NET classes are available for use, such as:

    • System.Data.Common.DataAdapter

  • Support for Entity Framework Core 2.0 has been added (Entity Framework 1.1 support continues). Currently, the MySQL Connector/NET implementation excludes the following 2.0 features:

    • Modeling: table splitting, owned types, model-level query filters, database scalar function mapping, self-contained type configuration for code first.

    • High performance: DbContext pooling and explicitly compiled queries.

    • Change tracking: attach can track a graph of new and existing entities.

    • Query: improved LINQ translation, group-join improvements, string interpolation in FromSql and ExecuteSqlCommand, new EF.Functions.Like().

    • Database management: pluralization hook for DbContext scaffolding.

    • Others: only one provider per model, consolidated logging and diagnostics.
