Changes in MySQL Connector/NET 6.10.9 (2019-07-29, General Availability)


     * Functionality Added or Changed

     * Bugs Fixed

Functionality Added or Changed


     * Connector/NET now supports IPV6 connections made using
       the classic MySQL protocol when the operating system on
       the server host also supports IPV6. (Bug #29682333)

     * Support was added for .NET Core 2.2, which is a
       cross-platform version of .NET for building applications
       that run on Linux, macOS and Windows (see Connector/NET
       Versions
       (https://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-net/en/connector-net-versions.html)).

Bugs Fixed


     * The InvariantCulture property was missing from some data
       types, which created issues during platform migration
       operations. Thanks to Effy Teva for the patch. (Bug
       #29262195, Bug #94045)

     * Connector/NET connections executed SHOW VARIABLES
       unnecessarily. (Bug #28928543, Bug #93202)

     * An exception was generated when the MySqlDbType
       enumeration was given an explicit value and then passed
       as a parameter to the MySqlCommand.Prepare method. (Bug
       #28834253, Bug #92912)

     * The CreateCommandBuilder and CreateDataAdapter methods
       were added to MySqlClientFactory class. Thanks to C├ędric
       Luthi for the patch. (Bug #28560189, Bug #92206)

     * Validation was added to ensure that when a column is of
       type TIME and the value is 00:00:00, it takes the value
       instead of setting NULL. (Bug #28383726, Bug #91752)

     * Connector/NET returned the wrong time zone when the
       TIMESTAMP column was read from a MySQL table. (Bug
       #28156187)

     * Entity Framework Core: A syntax error was generated
       during an operation attempting to rename a table that was
       previously migrated from code. Now, the primary key
       constraint for an existing table can be dropped without
       errors when the follow-on migration operation is
       performed. (Bug #28107555, Bug #90958)

     * The implementation of DbProviderFactory prevented an
       application from connecting to MySQL in a generic way.
       Now, invoking the CreateDataAdapter method returns a
       valid adapter instead of returning the null value. (Bug
       #27292344, Bug #88660)

     * Connector/NET access to MySQL stopped working after the
       computer hosting the server was started and continued to
       operate uninterrupted for a defined period of time. (Bug
       #26930306, Bug #75604)
