MySQL Connector/NET 6.9.11 GA has been released

Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/Net 6.9.11 is a maintenance release for the 6.9.x series
of the .NET driver for MySQL. It can be used for production
environments.

It is appropriate for use with MySQL server versions 5.5-5.7.

It is now available in source and binary form from
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/net/#downloadsandmirrorsites
(note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point-if you
can’t find this version on some mirror, please try again later or choose

Changes in MySQL Connector/Net 6.9.11 (2018-01-26, General
Availability)

   Functionality Added or Changed

     * All demos, code samples, and test-debug scripts are now
       optional to install, whereas before these items were installed by
       default. (Bug #19248623)

   Bugs Fixed

     * Instances of the DataReader class did not close
       connections implicitly as expected when CommandBehavior was set
       to CloseConnection. This fix ensures that the connection is
       closed properly when the DataReader object no longer exists. (Bug
       #27277013)

     * When a decimal column was defined with a scale of zero,
       such as DECIMAL(8, 0), the value of the NumericPrecision field
       returned by the MySqlDataReader.GetSchemaTable method was lower
       by one. For example, it returned 7 instead of 8 as expected. (Bug
       #26954812, Bug #88058)

     * The data table returned by the
       MySqlDataReader.GetSchemaTable method had an inaccurate value of
       zero assigned to the ColumnSize field for LONGTEXT and LONGBLOB
       data types, and also indicated that the IsLong field value was
       false when it should have returned true. (Bug #26876592, Bug
       #87876)

     * The MySqlDataReader.GetSchemaTable method returned
       different column-size values when used with different character
       sets. (Bug #26876582, Bug #87868)

     * Support for making a secure connection to a server
       configured to use TLSv1.2 was limited by external factors. (Bug
       #25689154)

     * SSL connections made to a single MySQL instance could not
       be disconnected and created repeatedly without restarting the
       client application to clear the half-open sockets.  (Bug
       #20393654, Bug #75022)
