Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/NET 6.7.7, a new version of the all-managed .NET driver for MySQL has been released. This is the GA, is feature complete. It is recommended for production environments. It is appropriate for use with MySQL server versions 5.5-5.7.

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

Changes in MySQL Connector/Net 6.7.7

Bugs Fixed

* With Entity Framework 6, passing in a string reference to
the StartWith clause would return incorrect results. (Bug
#20129927, Bug #20334228, Bug #20334274, Bug #74918)

* The GetTimeZoneOffset method would return an incorrect
value depending on the server Time and TimeZone, as it
did not take into account the day into the context of the
time difference. (Bug #20065691, Bug #20362040, Bug
#20362036, Bug #74905)

* A memory leak was fixed. (Bug #19467233, Bug #19474480,
Bug #19474510, Bug #73122)

* The CreateUser function did not trim whitespace before
storing values into the database, while MembershipUser
did return trimmed values. The trimming is now performed
before the data is stored. (Bug #19453313, Bug #19459461,
Bug #19459436, Bug #73411)

* Queries with collations using the _utf16le character set
were not read correctly and instead yielded a "not
presented key in dictionary" error. (Bug #19446614, Bug
#19355906, Bug #19446571, Bug #72737)

* MySQL Connector/Net would sometimes attempt to call
stored procedures when it should not. (Bug #19446554, Bug
#19446523, Bug #19325120, Bug #72736)

* A connection string that included Chinese characters for
a database or uid property would emit the following
exception; "MySqlException: Unknown database '???'". (Bug
#18141356, Bug #20508130, Bug #70041)

* Loading two nested collections could be reported as an
invalid SQL query as MySQL Connector/Net only generated a
partial query. (Bug #18049862, Bug #20409538, Bug
#20409528, Bug #70941)
