MySQL Connector/Node.js 8.0.25 has been released

Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/Node.js is a new Node.js driver for use with the X
DevAPI. This release, v8.0.25, is a maintenance release of the
MySQL Connector/Node.js 8.0 series.

The X DevAPI enables application developers to write code that combines
the strengths of the relational and document models using a modern,
NoSQL-like syntax that does not assume previous experience writing
traditional SQL.

MySQL Connector/Node.js can be downloaded through npm (see
https://www.npmjs.com/package/@mysql/xdevapi for details) or from
https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/nodejs/.

To learn more about how to write applications using the X DevAPI, see
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/x-devapi-userguide/en/.
For more information about how the X DevAPI is implemented in MySQL
Connector/Node.js, and its usage, see
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-nodejs/.

Please note that the X DevAPI requires at least MySQL Server version
8.0 or higher with the X Plugin enabled. For general documentation
about how to get started using MySQL as a document store, see
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/document-store.html.

   This release contains no functional changes and is published
   to align the version number with the MySQL Server 8.0.25
   release.
