Dear users,

Devart is glad to announce the release of the new version of dotConnect for MySQL, enhanced database connectivity solution, built over the ADO.NET architecture, that supports Entity Framework and LinqConnect ORM solutions. New dotConnect for MySQL offers you Entity Developer 5.0 with greatly improved usability.

New Entity Developer offers the powerful model refactoring functionality that greatly simplifies and automates such operations as creating complex types from properties, common to several entities, or creating TPT or TPC hierarchies from several entities. Now you can just select these entities on a diagram, right-click them, and select Model Refactoring from the shortcut menu. Then select the required action in the opened Model Refactoring Wizard and complete its steps, and Entity Developer will perform the selected action automatically.

Entity Developer also provides numerous improvements of its object editor dialog boxes, mapping synchronization improvements, new keyboard shortcuts and a number of other updates. You can see a more detailed review of the new features in Entity Developer in our New Features in Entity Developer 5.0 blog article.


Here is the complete list of dotConnect for MySQL 7.3.146 features:

  • The 'Disable Charset Sending' connection string parameter is implemented (defines whether the query 'SET NAMES charset_name' will be executed after MySqlConnection.Open when pooling is set to 'true')
  • The bug, that occurred when editing an existing Dataset in DataSet Wizard and which was associated with incorrect processing of 'Select command text' for Data tables having DataSource set to TableAdapter, is fixed
LinqConnect (formerly known as LINQ to MySQL)
  • The bug related to the "Object does not match target type" exception when working with DbLinqDataSources and gridviews is fixed
  • The bug with the implicitly converting strings to integer type in queries when working with VB.NET projects is fixed
  • The bug related to the "Unsupported delete rule 'NO ACTION'" exception when creating DataContext is fixed
  • The bug with update commands for dependent entities that participate in Table Per Type inheritance is fixed
Entity Developer
  • Model Refactoring feature is implemented; it speeds up creating complex types and Table Per Type and Table Per Concrete Type inheritances from several model entities
  • Create Storage and Mapping command, that allows automatically creating of the corresponding storage part object and defining mapping, is added to the shortcut menu of classes, properties, and associations (Entity Framework models)
  • Select Storage Object command, that allows quick navigation to the corresponding storage part object, is added to the shortcut menu of classes, properties, associations, and methods (Entity Framework models)
  • The possibility to delete the corresponding storage part objects automatically when deleting conceptual model objects is added (Entity Framework models)
  • The functionality of ignoring columns in the database in the "Update To/From Database" wizards if they were omitted once before is implemented
  • The Property Editor dialog is improved: fast access to the editor of the corresponding storage object and the possibility to specify different settings that were previously available only in the Properties docking window are implemented (Entity Framework models)
  • The Inheritance Editor dialog is improved: specifying Discriminator column for Table Per Hierarchy inheritance in the editor is implemented (Entity Framework models)
  • The Class Editor dialog is improved: fast access to the editor of the corresponding storage object is implemented (Entity Framework models)
  • The Method Editor dialog is improved: fast access to the editor of the corresponding storage object is implemented (Entity Framework models)
  • Warnings about objects that are not mapped are added
  • The naming algorithm for the newly-created columns, which correspond to complex type's properties, when using the Model First approach is improved (Entity Framework models)
  • A SHIFT+DELETE keyboard shortcut for deleting entity, complex type, or enum from diagram only is added
  • An INSERT keyboard shortcut for creating a new entity, adding property to the selected entity/complex type or new member to enum is added
  • The possibility to view notes, added through the "Documentation" property, for all the diagram objects via hints is implemented
  • Hints for diagram objects are improved
  • The behaviour is changed: Configure Behaviour dialog is renamed to Stored Procedure Mapping; options for hiding inappropriate and mapped stored procedures are added (Entity Framework models)
  • The behaviour is changed: Table Editor dialog is renamed to Storage Entity Editor (Entity Framework models)
  • The behaviour is changed: Stored Procedure Editor dialog is renamed to Storage Procedure Editor (Entity Framework models)
  • The behaviour is changed: Configure Behaviour dialog is renamed to Stored Procedure Mapping (LinqConnect models)
  • The behaviour is changed: now the 'Read Only' property is not set to true for autoincrement fields by default when creating/updating models (LinqConnect models)
  • The bug with generating a code for the initialization of the boolean property is fixed (LinqConnect models)
