Changes in MySQL Connector/NET 6.3.0 (2010-02-16, Alpha)

First alpha release of 6.3.

Functionality Added or Changed

  • Nested transaction scopes were not supported. MySQL Connector/NET now implements nested transaction scopes. A per-thread stack of scopes is maintained, which is necessary to handle nested scopes with the RequiresNew or Suppress options. (Bug #45098)

  • Support for MySQL Server 4.1 has been removed from MySQL Connector/NET starting with version 6.3.0. The connector will now throw an exception if you try to connect to a server of version less than 5.0.

Bugs Fixed

  • When adding a data set in Visual Studio 2008, the following error was generated:

    Relations couldn't be added. Column 'REFERENCED_TABLE_CATALOG' does not belong to table.

    This was due to a 'REFERENCED_TABLE_CATALOG' column not being included in the foreign keys collection. (Bug #48974)

  • Attempting to execute a load data local infile on a file where the user did not have write permissions, or the file was open in an editor gave an access denied error. (Bug #48944)

  • The method MySqlDataReader.GetSchemaTable() returned 0 in the NumericPrecision field for decimal and newdecimal columns. (Bug #48171)
