Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/Net 6.10.4 GA is the first release which introduces
Online API reference documentation and independent configuration of
Character set and collation in EF Core models.

Changes in MySQL Connector/Net 6.10.4 (2017-10-25, General

   Functionality Added or Changed

     * Online API reference documentation is now available for
       MySQL Connector/Net. This new format replaces the files
       compressed and deployed in a binary format with the extension
       .CHM (Compiled HTML) that previously shipped with each connector

     * The deprecated UseProcedureBodies connection-string
       option was removed. Instead, the CheckParameters option can be
       used to check stored parameters against the server.

     * EF Core: Character set and collation now are
       independently configurable in EF Core models. The values can be
       set at both the entity and entity-property levels by using either
       data annotation (new attributes) or new methods added to the
       code-first fluent API using the
       MySql.Data.EntityFrameworkCore.Extensions namespace.
       Specifically, the new items added for setting character set and
       collation are:

          + Attributes:[MySqlCharset] and [MySqlCollation]

          + Methods: ForMySQLHasCharset() and

   Bugs Fixed

     * Assemblies within NuGet packages were not fully signed.
       (Bug #26739307)

     * EF Core: Inserting a date of '0000-00-00' into a column
       when also setting Convert Zero Datetime=True in the connection
       string of a class that derives from DbContext produced an
       exception, instead of performing the expected conversion. (Bug
       #26552753, Bug #87120)

     * EF Core: Foreign key relations were not consistently
       created within the entity model generated by scaffolding a MySQL
       database. (Bug #26339430)

     * Invoking the
       MySql.Web.Security.MySqlWebSecurity.CreateUserAndAccount method
       with valid arguments, including additionalUserAttributes as an
       object with key/value pairs, returned an out-of-range exception.
       Thanks to Stein Setvik for contributing to the fix. (Bug

     * The default character set and encoding were not set
       properly when making a connection to MySQL 5.6 and 5.7 servers
       configured to use the utf8 character set. (Bug #23257011)

Nuget packages are available at:
