Dear MySQL users,

We have a new 1.1.1 Beta build available for you to download, so you can check what's been included on the new version.
This is a beta version so it should not be used on any production environment. But it is stable enough for you to try out the new features.

The changes from 1.0.2 to 1.1.1 version are:

- With MySql for Visual Studio 1.0.2 the registration of the Data provider on machine.config file was done in the installation of this product. After MySql for Visual Studio 1.1.1 the registration is not longer done by this product, but is done within the installation of Connector/Net (from 6.8.1 and on). Also is not needed when using only MySql for Visual Studio.

- Visual Studio 2013 support

- Entity Framework 6 support when creating a model using Database First and Model First. (this feature requires Connector/Net 6.8.1).

- A new MySQL Database Export tool

Connector/Net and Visual Studio Integration

MySQL for Visual Studio and Connector/Net are both products to run independently but at the same time both share some functionality. If both products are going to be used together, the
recommendation is always install the MySQL for Visual Studio first.

There are some restrictions when having a previous version of Connector/Net. Particularly the ones that have an integrated version ( A Connector/Net version that has included the Visual Integration functionality 6.6.x or lower). Any version of this type cannot be installed along with a version of the MySQL for Visual Studio product.

The functionality included on MySQL for Visual Studio 1.1.1 on the integration with the Visual Studio IDE are:

- Support for Visual Studio 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2013 (this is a new feature only for 1.1.1 version).

- Server Explorer Window:

- create a new connection to MySQL Server

- Table Designer

- Launch Workbench: Open an sql editor window

- Launch a MySQL utilities prompt.

- Generate a table script.

- MySQL Database Export tool. A GUI to generate a dump of an existing MySQL database. (New feature for 1.1.1 version).

- Routine Debugging: An existing routine can be debugged inside Visual Studio

- Entity Framework Designer Database First/Model First (this feature requires Connector/Net 6.8.1 installed).

- Web configuration tool: Set up the web providers when codding a Web site or Web application (this feature requires Connector/Net 6.8.1 installed).


- Windows OS 7 or later.
- Visual Studio 2010, 2012 or 2013 professional or higher version.
- Connector/Net 6.8.1 beta or higher version to check the Connector/Net & Entity Framework features. (download at: on the development releases).

We hope you can find these features useful and We're looking to hear your feedback.

Please download it and thanks for your support!
