Dear MySQL users,

MySQL for Visual Studio is a product that includes all of the Visual
Studio integration functionality to create and manage MySQL databases
when developing .NET applications. This is a maintenance release for
1.2.x.  It is feature complete and is suitable for production
environments.

This version is appropriate for using with MySQL server versions
5.5-5.6.  The 5.7 server version is also compatible but is not fully
supported, thus it should be used at your own discretion.

As this is a maintenance release of the MySQL for Visual Studio product,
it can be downloaded by using the product standalone installer at this
link http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/windows/visualstudio/ or with the
MySQL Windows Installer.


Changes in MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.4 (2015-07-28)

   This is a maintenance release that fixes bugs and adds
   support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2015.

   Known limitations:

   MySQL for Visual Studio project templates are designed to
   work with MVC 4, but Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 is the
   first VS version that ships with MVC 5. As a workaround for
   this release, you must install MVC 4 to get the project
   templates working with VS 2015. If MVC 4 is not installed,
   then the MySQL template menus and toolbars will be disabled.

   If MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.4 is installed before MVC 4,
   then you must uninstall and then reinstall the 1.2.4 plugin.
   Executing a "Change" or "Repair" will not work.

   The Launch Workbench and Launch MySQL Utilities toolbar
   buttons are disabled in this release.

   Bugs Fixed
     * Removed Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 support.
     * Added Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 support.
