Changes in MySQL Connector/NET 7.0.7 (2017-03-16, Milestone 6)

Functionality Added or Changed

  • X DevAPI: Added support for Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) addresses. Host names can now resolve as IPv4 or IPv6 addresses.

  • X DevAPI: Connection string syntax is now identical to the URI scheme, which provides a cross-product syntax for defining the connection data to establish a session. See Connecting to the Server Using URI-Like Strings or Key-Value Pairs.

  • X DevAPI: Added new methods to the Schema class to create, alter, and drop views. Usage notes include:

    • Views created with the Schema.CreateView().DefinedAs() method chain are supported for use with the table Select method, but are not supported with the collection Find method.

    • A collection view created in the database by some mechanism other than the CreateView method is not defined as a view by Table.IsView.

    • Query objects assigned to a view with the CreateView method are static, even when the underlying query changes.
