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.



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