Changes in MySQL Connector/NET 6.2.0 (2009-10-21, Alpha)

The first alpha release of 6.2.

Bugs Fixed

  • When using a BINARY(16) column to represent a GUID and having specified old guids = true in the connection string, the values were returned correctly until a null value was encountered in that field. After the null value was encountered a format exception was thrown with the following message:

    Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx).

    (Bug #47928)

  • The Session Provider created invalid session expires on a random basis.

    This was due to the fact that the Session Provider was incorrectly reading from the root web.config, rather than from the application specific web.config. (Bug #47815)

  • When loading the MySQLClient-mono.sln file included with the Connector/NET source into Mono Develop, the following error occurred:

    Unsupported or unrecognized project:

    If the file was modified to remove this problem, then attempting to build the solution generated the following error:

    error CS0115: `MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection.DbProviderFactory' is marked as an
    override but no suitable property found to override

    (Bug #47048)
