MySQL Connector/Net a new version of the all-managed .NET driver for MySQL has been released. This is a bug fix release for the current production branch of Connector/Net. Version is suitable for use with any MySQL version including MySQL-4.1, MySQL-5.0, MySQL-5.1 beta or the MySQL-6.0 Falcon "Preview".

It is now available in source and binary form from the Connector/Net download pages at and mirror sites (note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point of time - if you can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or choose another download site.)

We moved to a new installer technology for this release. Please let us know what, if any, problems you have with it.


* Bug #24373 High CPU utilization when no idle connection
* Bug #24957 MySql.Data.Types.MySqlConversionException is not marked as Serializable.
* Bug #25603 Critial ConnectionPool Error in Connector.Net 5.03
* Fixed problem where an attempt to open a connection max pool size times while the server is down will prevent any further attempts due to the pool semaphore being full. (Bug #29409)
* Fixed problem where attempting to load a reader into a datatable using a table with a multi-column primary key would result in multiple constraints being added to the datatable. No test case added to the 1.0 tree as loading a datatable with a reader is a .Net 2.0 thing. (bug #30204)

* Added "Use Procedure Bodies" connection string option to allow calling procedures without using procedure metadata (if possible).
* Reverted behavior that required parameter names to start with the parameter marker. We apologize for this back and forth but we mistakenly changed the behavior to not match what SqlClient supports. We now support using either syntax for adding parameters however we also respond exactly like SqlClient in that if you ask for the index of a parameter using a syntax different than you added the parameter, the result
will be -1.
* Changed installer to Inno Setup
