Added TLS support for TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2 when connecting to MySQL Server 5.7.
Improvements were made to how the connector handles aborted connections. (Bug #23346197, Bug #80997)
With Entity Framework 6, building a table with a primary key would not enclose the key name in quotes, which caused a syntax error. (Bug #22696180, Bug #22696207, Bug #76292)
The connector was not disposing the transaction returned by DBContext.Database.BeginTransaction() when exiting a using code block. (Bug #22514355, Bug #22514363)
When MySQL Monitor Plugin was installed with MySQL Connector/NET from a Windows Installer (.msi) installation package or MySQL Installer, the installation failed. (Bug #21507993)
The connector did not attempt to enumerate stored procedures via mysql.proc(). Instead it looked up stored procedures in INFORMATION_SCHEMA.ROUTINES. This could have led to performance degradation in certain scenarios. (Bug #20960373, Bug #23528155, Bug #74116)
