Changes in MySQL Connector/NET 8.2.0 (2023-10-25, General Availability)

Packaging Notes

  • Updated the Portable.BouncyCastle 1.9.0 NuGet package reference to BouncyCastle.Cryptography 2.2.1, which is the currently maintained package. (Bug #111361, Bug #35488339)

Functionality Added or Changed

  • Combined all of the Entity Framework Core projects (6, 7, and 8) into a single project under a folder named EFCore. (WL #15799)

  • Connector/NET now supports .NET 8.0 and Entity Framework Core 8.0 (preview versions). (WL #15792)

  • Connector/NET now supports an authentication method that enables users to authenticate to MySQL Server using WebAuthn-aware devices for classic MySQL protocol connections. WebAuthn authentication is based on the FIDO and FIDO2 standards. For an overview of the supported client-side authentication plugins and authentication methods, see Connector/NET Authentication. (WL #15193)

Bugs Fixed

  • Applications like Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Power BI Desktop emitted an error when used with Connector/NET 8.0.33 and later. This fix identifies and restores the missing component. (Bug #110975, Bug #35379875)

  • Multiple MySqlConnection objects on separate threads called simultaneously could return ArgumentException or InvalidOperationException when MySqlPoolManager.GetPoolAsync tried to modify the shared thread-pool object concurrently from the different threads. (Bug #110717, Bug #35307501)
