dotConnect for MySQL 7.4 is released!

Post by Devart » Thu 17 Jan 2013 14:19

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 support for Entity Framework 6 Alpha 2.

Now our users can use such Entity Framework 6 features as custom Code-First conventions, which allow you to easily configure default property mapping or other settings, support for enums and spatials on .NET Framework 4.0, code-based configuration, better performance, etc.

Entity Developer also supports creating and designing Entity Framework 6 models. When creating or editing an Entity Framework model, you can set the target Entity Framework version in the Model Settings. Entity Developer generates valid code, compatible with Entity Framework 6.

You can read more about Entity Framework 6 support in our blog article Entity Framework 6 Support for Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite and Salesforce.

Here is the complete list of dotConnect for MySQL 7.4.164 features:

LinqConnect (formerly known as LINQ to MySQL)
  • The bug related to the "Cannot convert from 'string' to 'Devart.Data.Linq.Mapping.DeleteRule' " error when working with Fluent mapping is fixed
Entity Developer
  • The bug with duplicate entries in the Base Class Condition and Derived Class Condition dropdowns of Inheritance Editor is fixed (Entity Framework models)
Entity Framework
  • Entity Framework 6 Alpha 2 is supported
  • Devart.Data.MySql.Entity.dll assembly compiled with EntityFramework.dll 6.0 and NET Framework 4.0 is added
