What's New in version 6.8.3
  • Bugs Fixed:
  • The RenameColumn operation in an Entity Framework migration threw an “Unknown column 'no' in the 'field list'” error when Update-Database was applied.
  • A MySQL-session-state-enabled web application threw exceptions for referencing the wrong table name my_aspnet_Sessions (instead of the correct name my_aspnet_sessions). This was due to the incorrect case handling of the SQL queries for MySqlSessionStateStore.
  • An error occurred when MySqlProviderFactoryResolver was used with .NET Framework 4.0 and Entity Framework 6.
