Connector/NET 6.8.3 is available as official MySQL Nuget packages

Dear MySQL users,

We are proud to announce that
we have made the open source version of our Connector/NET 6.8.3 is available as official MySQL Nuget packages.

What this means for Connector/Net users?

It’s even easier and more straight forward to develop for
MySQL from Visual Studio. Installing and upgrading packages couldn’t be easier.

NuGet is the package manager for the Microsoft development
platform including .NET. The NuGet client tools provide the ability to produce
and consume packages. The NuGet Gallery is the central software package
repository populated by various package authors and tied directly to developers
ease of installation and development.

For more information see http://nuget.codeplex.com/documentation?title=Getting%20Started

Currently we have 3 nuget packages which contain:

  • MySQL Connector/NET Core
  • MySQL Connector/NET for Entity Framework 6
  • MySQL Connector/NET Web providers

In order to install the nuget package you can use the
Package Manager Console as follows:

PM> Install-Package MySql.ConnectorNET.Entity

PM> Install-Package MySql.ConnectorNET.Web

Or via the visual studio console


Note –  The core package is automatically included -

MySql.ConnectorNET.Entity and MySql.ConnectorNET.Web are
dependent on MySql.ConnectorNET.Data so there is no need to install it (it will
be installed automatically).
