Comments: cc: adamhunger@yahoo.com

Quick announcement:

You can find a pre-alpha version of a native MySQL driver written entirely
in C#.  Many features are currently functional, but this driver has not been
tested completely yet and is not even fully implemented yet.  It could eat
your data and not even say thank you!

Features that work:
1.  Socket and pipe access to the latest 3.x version of MySQL (4.0 is not
supported yet)
2.  Connection, Datareader, Command, and DataAdapter classes implemented
(select only on data adapter)
3.  DataSet.Fill functions correctly

What is not there (tons, so just the big ones):
1.  Protocol compression
2.  Transactions
3.  Non-select Adapter commands
4.  Support for previous MySQL protocols
5.  Support for 4.0 protocol

Why put it out now?  Well, I just wanted to let everyone know that it exists
so that if anyone needed/wanted access to MySQL they knew of the project.

You can find a link to it on our site at
http://www.bytefx.com/projects.aspx.  It is licensed under the GPL and any
thoughts/help/suggestions/patches are welcome.

This is our first project released under the GPL so please be gentle with us
