D.4.2.1. Changes in MySQL Connector/NET 6.3.6 (03 January 2011 GA)

Third GA release. Fixes bugs since 6.3.5.

Functionality added or changed:

  • Changed how the procedure schema collection is retrieved. If the connection string contains “use procedure bodies=true” then a SELECT is performed on the mysql.proc table directly, as this is up to 50 times faster than the current Information Schema implementation. If the connection string contains “use procedure bodies=false”, then the Information Schema collection is queried. (Bug#36694)

Bugs fixed:

  • MembershipProvider did not generate hashes correctly if the algorithm was keyed. The Key of the algorithm should have been set if the HashAlgorithm was KeyedHashAlgorithm. (Bug#58906)

  • Code introduced to fix Bug#54863 proved problematic on .NET version 3.5 and above. (Bug#58853)

  • The MySqlTokenizer contained unnecessary Substring and Trim calls:

    string token = sql.Substring(startIndex, stopIndex - startIndex).Trim();

    The variable token was not used anywhere in the code. (Bug#58757)

  • MySqlCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior) threw a NullReferenceException when being called with CommandBehavior.CloseConnection, if the SQL statement contained a syntax error, or contained invalid data such as an invalid column name. (Bug#58652)

  • ReadFieldLength() returned incorrect value for BIGINT autoincrement columns. (Bug#58373)

  • When attempting to create an ADO.NET Entity Data Model, MySQL connections were not available. (Bug#58278)

  • MySQL Connector/NET did not support the utf8mb4 character set. When attempting to connect to utf8mb4 tables or columns, an exception KeyNotFoundException was generated. (Bug#58244)

  • Installation of MySQL Connector/NET 6.3.5 failed. The error reported was:

    MySQL Connector Net 6.3.5 Setup Wizard ended 
    prematurely because of an error. Your system has not been modified.


  • When the tracing driver was used and a SQL statement was longer than 300 characters, an ArgumentOutOfRangeExcpetion occurred if the statement also contained a quoted character, and the 300th character was in the middle of a quoted token. (Bug#57641)

  • Calling the Read() method on a DataReader obtained from MySqlHelper.ExecuteReader generated the following exception:

    Unhandled Exception: MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlException: Invalid attempt to R
    ead when reader is closed.
       at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlDataReader.Read()
       at MySqlTest.MainClass.Main(String[] args)


  • Default values returned for text columns were not quoted. This meant that the COLUMN_DEFAULT field of the GetSchema columns collection did not return a valid SQL expression. (Bug#56509)

  • When using MySQL Connector/NET on Mono 2.8 using .NET 4.0, attempting to connect to a MySQL database generated the following exception:

    Unhandled Exception: System.MissingMethodException: Method not found:
      at (wrapper remoting-invoke-with-check)
     MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection:Open ()


  • MySQL Connector/NET for .NET/Mono attempted to dynamically load the assembly Mono.Posix.dll when a Unix socket was used to connect to the server. This failed and the connector was not able to use a Unix socket unless the Mono.Posix.dll assembly was previously loaded by the program. (Bug#56410)

  • The ADO.NET Entity Data Model could not add stored procedures from MySQL Server 5.0.45 but worked fine using MySQL Server 5.1. (Bug#55349)
