MySql Connector/NET 6.7.4 GA has been released

MySQL Connector/Net 6.7.4, a new version of the all-managed .NET driver for MySQL has been released.  This is the GA, is feature complete. It is recommended for production environments.  It is appropriate for use with MySQL server versions 5.0-5.7.

 It is now available in source and binary form from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/net/#downloads and mirror sites (note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point-if you can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or choose another download site.)

The 6.7 version of MySQL Connector/Net brings the following new features:
-  WinRT Connector.
-  Load Balancing support.
-  Entity Framework 5.0 support.
-  Memcached support for Innodb Memcached plugin.
-  This version also splits the product in two: from now on, starting version 6.7, Connector/NET will include only the former Connector/NET ADO.NET driver, Entity Framework and ASP.NET providers (Core libraries of MySql.Data, MySql.Data.Entity & MySql.Web). While all the former product Visual Studio integration (Design support, Intellisense, Debugger) are available as part of MySql Windows Installer under the name "MySql for Visual Studio".

 WinRT Connector
 -------------------------------------------
Now you can write MySql data access apps in Windows Runtime (aka Store Apps) using the familiar API of Connector/NET for .NET.

 Load Balancing Support
 -------------------------------------------
 Now you can setup a Replication or Cluster configuration in the backend, and Connector/NET will balance the load of queries among all servers making up the backend topology.

 Entity Framework 5.0
 -------------------------------------------
 Connector/NET is now compatible with EF 5, including special features of EF 5 like spatial types.

 Memcached
 -------------------------------------------
 Just setup Innodb memcached plugin and use Connector/NET new APIs to establish a client to MySql 5.6 server's memcached daemon.

 Bug fixes included in this release:
- Fix for Entity Framework when inserts data having Identity columns (Oracle bug #16494585).
- Fix for Connector/NET cannot read data from a MySql table using UTF-16/UTF-32 (MySql bug #69169, Oracle bug #16776818).
