MySQL for Visual Studio Release Notes

3.2 Changes in MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.8 (2018-04-30, General Availability)

Functionality Added or Changed

  • When Microsoft Visual Studio receives a request to register (or unregister) MySQL for Visual Studio within the IDE during the installation, Visual Studio might not execute the command properly if the host is running Windows 7. This fix identifies when Visual Studio does not register MySQL for Visual Studio as requested and then provides an alert to perform the registration manually from the Developer Command Prompt for Visual Studio using the following command:

           
    devenv /updateconfiguration /log
    

    (Bug #27365261, Bug #87902)

  • MySQL for Visual Studio now supports the MySQL 8.0 release series (requires Connector/NET 6.9.12, 6.10.7, or 8.0.11) including:

    In addition, MySQL for Visual Studio now requires that .NET Framework 4.5.2 (or later) be installed for use within Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio 2013.

Bugs Fixed

  • The Website Configuration Tool was unable to add an ADO.NET entity data model to an ADO.NET web application successfully. In addition to aligning the web.config file with the installed version of Connector/NET, this fix also disables the Entity Framework 5 selection when the installed connector no longer includes a provider for EF5 (Connector/NET 6.10 and higher). (Bug #27593219)

  • Queries made with a valid MySQL connection received no response from the server. (Bug #27584991)

  • When the MySQL for Visual Studio parser was unable to parse an SQL statement, it generated an unhandled exception that caused Visual Studio to exit unexpectedly. This fix enables the parser to handle exceptions properly and updates the parser to include support for CREATE USER syntax in the MySQL 8.0 release series. (Bug #27580303)

  • The version for the MySql.Web assembly was incorrectly extracted, which prevented the assembly from loading properly and the MySQL Website Configuration Tool from launching. (Bug #27450530)

  • Attempting to open the MySQL Web Configuration Tool, with MySQL Connector/NET and MySQL for Visual Studio prerequisites installed properly, displayed an error message instead of opening the tool. (Bug #27365141, Bug #88570)
