New Question: Visual Studio - MariaDB - Entity Framework 6+



A new question has been asked in "MariaDB FAQ" by vaclav. Please answer it at http://mariadb.com/kb/en/visual-studio-mariadb-entity-framework-6/ as the person asking the question may not be subscribed to the mailing list.

Dear Specialists,

We can use at the moment "Visual Studio ADO.NET Driver for MySQL" (https://www.mysql.com/products/connector/) and also there was lots of work done with Visual Studio Integration for MySQL. (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-net/en/connector-net-visual-studio.html).

The question is while now it is compatible with MariaDB and I can use MariaDB instead of MySQL, how long if at all there will be a point when this won't become anymore compatible. 

Is this connection compatibility related with a core or some layer in MariaDB which doesn't change and so it should be working in the future.

The reason I am asking is to decide with the strategy. I am testing MariaDB with Entity Framework and the driver/connection mentioned above and it is working but what if you deviate from the connectivity at certain point?

Thank you.
