Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/Net 6.10.7 is the fourth GA release with .NET Core
now supporting various connection-string options and MySQL 8.0 server

To download MySQL Connector/Net 6.10.7 GA, see the "Generally Available
(GA) Releases" tab at

Changes in MySQL Connector/Net 6.10.7 (2018-04-30, General Availability)

   Functionality Added or Changed

     * Connections made to MySQL 8.0 (up to and including
       version 8.0.3) and compatibility with the new data dictionary are
       now supported. For information about the data dictionary, see
       MySQL Data Dictionary

     * Support for the caching_sha2_password authentication
       plugin through the classic MySQL protocol was added. In addition,
       the sha256_password plugin was extended to support authentication
       when RSA keys are available through non-secure connections.
       Caching SHA-2 pluggable authentication offers faster
       authentication than basic SHA-256 authentication.

     * Support was added for the new caching_sha2_password
       padding mechanism introduced in the MySQL 8.0 release series. The
       new padding mechanism is enabled when all of the following
       conditions apply:

          + The user account is set with the
            caching_sha2_password authentication plugin.

          + SSL is disabled explicitly (SslMode=none).

          + The AllowPublicKeyRetrieval connection option is enabled
          (AllowPublicKeyRetrieval=true).  When enabled, the new padding
          mechanism is used to encode the password during RSA key
          encryption, which applies the correct padding to match the

Bugs Fixed

     * Attempting to open the MySQL Web Configuration Tool, with
       Connector/Net and MySQL for Visual Studio prerequisites installed

       (Bug #27457398, Bug #88544)

     * The ADO.NET Entity Data Model wizard within Visual Studio
       closed unexpectedly without producing the data model.  Thanks to

     * An exception prevented MySQL.Data.Entity for Entity
       Framework 6 from operating as expected. Thanks to C├ędric Luthi
       for the patch. (Bug #27360520, Bug #89134)

     * MySQL Installer could not be installed with NuGet
       packages from Microsoft Visual Studio 2015. (Bug #27251839,
       Bug #88838)

     * With valid references to the DLLs provided, using
       MySql.Data.Entity.MySqlEFConfiguration()) to set up the DbContext
       threw an exception. (Bug #25185319)

     * Attempting to generate an Entity Framework model from a
       MySQL 5.7 database using either EF5 or EF6 produced an exception
       that prevented the operation from generating the expected model.
       (Bug #22173048, Bug #79163)

Enjoy and thanks for the support!
