Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/Net 6.10.2 beta is the third release which supports
Scaffold-DbContext, that enables the creation of corresponding model
classes from an existing database that are compatible with Entity
Framework (EF) Core 1.1.

To download MySQL Connector/Net 6.10.2 beta, see the "Development
Releases" tab at

Changes in MySQL Connector/Net 6.10.2 (2017-07-04, Beta)

   Functionality Added or Changed

     * The previously deprecated Old Syntax (OldSyntax, Use Old
       Syntax, UseOldSyntax) connection-string option was removed.

     * EF Core: Tables from an existing database can be
       specified with command-line tools when scaffolding a DbContext.
       The MySQL provider generates an entity type for each table in the
       DbContext. By default, all tables in the database are included
       unless a list of tables is provided.

       For Package Manager Console
       Tools, use the Scaffold-DbContext command with the -Table
       <tablename, tablename, ...> common parameter.

       For .NET Core CLI
       Tools, use the dotnet ef dbcontext scaffold command with the
       --table <tablename> option for each table to add.

     * EF Core: The MySQL provider now creates a new schema when
       the entity.ToTable method within a derived DbContext class
       specifies the name of a nonexistent schema.

     * EF Core: The Connector/Net implementation of EF Core now
       includes extended maximum lengths for several string data types
       to enable the use of longer strings.

     * Connector/Net no longer supports MySQL Fabric.

   Bugs Fixed

     * EF Core: The --force option when used with the dotnet ef
       dbcontext scaffold command did not overwrite the existing output
       files as expected. (Bug #25493508)

     * EF Core: The Database First command used to create a
       DbContext class emitted an error when used with either the sakila
       or world database sample. (Bug #25493336)

     * EF Core: The Database First feature did not support the
       following data types: BINARY, VARBINARY, MEDIUMBLOB, LONGBLOB,
       SET, DATE, TIME, and YEAR. (Bug #25493209)

     * EF Core: JSON data exchange format was not supported by
       the Database First feature. (Bug #25493143)

     * EF Core: Database First support produced an error when
       the existing MySQL database included one or more views.  (Bug

     * EF Core: Using
       System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.Schema.TableAttribute to
       initialize a new class instance that specified the name of an
       existing MySQL table produced incorrect mappings of table and
       column names. (Bug #25394223, Bug #84423)

Enjoy and thanks for the support!
