Changes in MySQL Connector/NET 6.3.1 (2010-03-02)

This release fixes bugs since 6.3.0.

Functionality Added or Changed

  • Connector/NET was not compatible with Visual Studio wizards that used square brackets to delimit symbols.

    Connector/NET has been changed to include a new connection string option Sql Server mode that supports use of square brackets to delimit symbols. (Bug #35852)

Bugs Fixed

  • Specifying a connection string where an option had no value generated an error, rather than the value being set to the default. For example, a connection string such as the following would result in an error:


    (Bug #51209)

  • The method Command.TrimSemicolons used StringBuilder, and therefore allocated memory for the query even if it did not need to be trimmed. This led to excessive memory consumption when executing a number of large queries. (Bug #51149)

  • MySqlCommand.Parameters.Clear() did not work. (Bug #50444)

  • Binary Columns were not displayed in the Query Builder of Visual Studio. (Bug #50171)

  • When the UpdateBatchSize property was set to a value greater than 1, only the first row was applied to the database. (Bug #50123)

  • When trying to create stored procedures from an SQL script, a MySqlException was thrown when attempting to redefine the DELIMITER:

    MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlException was unhandled
    Message="You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your
    MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'DELIMITER' at line 1"
    à MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlStream.ReadPacket()
    à MySql.Data.MySqlClient.NativeDriver.ReadResult(UInt64& affectedRows, Int64&
    à MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlDataReader.GetResultSet()
    à MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlDataReader.NextResult()
    à MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior behavior)
    à MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlCommand.ExecuteReader()
    à MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()
    à MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlScript.Execute()

    Note: The MySqlScript class has been fixed to support the delimiter statement as it is found in SQL scripts. (Bug #46429)

  • A connection string set in web.config could not be reused after Visual Studio 2008 Professional was shut down. It continued working for the existing controls, but did not work for new controls added. (Bug #41629)
