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 version of dotConnect for MySQL offers you support for Entity Framework Spatials and SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services support.

Entity Framework Spatials Support

dotConnect for MySQL 7.7 introduces Entity Framework Spatials support for Entity Framework 5 and 6. MySQL provides only basic spatial functionality, however it can be sufficient for some tasks. dotConnect for MySQL provides the best possible support for existing MySQL spatial features and additionally implements the calculation of distances on the surface of a spheroid, which is not supported in MySQL out-of-the-box. dotConnect for MySQL supports the MBR-based MySQL functions in Entity SQL and LINQ to Entities.

You can read more about new features of Entity Framework Spatials support in our Enhanced Entity Framework Spatials support for Oracle, MySQL and PostgreSQL blog article.

SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services Support

New version of dotConnect for MySQL now can be used in Reporting Services projects for the latest version of SQL Server. Now our users can benefit from Power View in Microsoft Excel 2013 and Power View in Microsoft SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2010 integration, data alerts and other new SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services features.

Here is the complete list of dotConnect for MySQL 7.7.287 features:
