MySQL Connector/Net 8.0.8-dmr has been released on 11th July, 2017

MySQL Connector/Net 8.0.8 is the fifth development release that expands cross-platform support to Linux and macOS when using Microsoft’s .NET Core framework. Now, .NET developers can use the X DevAPI with .NET Core and Entity Framework Core (EF Core) 1.0 to create server applications that run on Windows, Linux and macOS. We are very excited about this change and really look forward to your feedback on it! MySQL Connector/Net 8.0.8 is also the seventh development release of MySQL Connector/Net to add support for the new X DevAPI. The X DevAPI enables application developers to write code that combines the strengths of the relational and document models using a modern, NoSQL-like syntax that does not assume previous experience writing traditional SQL. To learn more about how to write applications using the X DevAPI, see . For more information about how the X DevAPI is implemented in Connector/Net, see

Making telescopes that curve and twist

New computational tool automates design of telescoping structures that provide compact storage and rapid deployment. Shown here: a complex telescoping lizard expands to many times its original volume, serving as a stress test of the method. Credit: Chris Yu/Carnegie Mellon University A new tool for computational design allows users to turn any 3D shape into a collapsible telescoping structure. New mathematical methods developed by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University capture the complex and diverse properties of such structures, which are valuable for a variety of applications in 3D fabrication and robotics—particularly where mechanisms must be compact in size and easily deployable. The research, "Computational Design of Telescoping Structures," led by Carnegie Mellon Professors Stelian Coros and Keenan Crane and PhD student Christopher Yu, will be presented at the annual SIGGRAPH conference, 30 July to 3 August in Los Angeles. The conference each year spotlights the

Woot, 2.4.0 is out! : vue.js

Features Full SSR + async component support in core:  SSR now supports rendering async components used anywhere and the client also supports async components during the hydration phase. This means async components / code-splitting now  just works  during SSR and is no longer limited at the route level. ( 9cf6646  &  7404091 ) Easier creation of wrapper components:  ( 6118759 ) New component option:  inheritAttrs . Turns off the default behavior where parent scope non-prop bindings are automatically inherited on component root as attributes. New instance properties:  $attrs  &  $listeners .  $attrs  contains the parent-scope attribute bindings that were not recognized as props, and  $listeners  contains the  v-on  listeners registered in the parent scope (without the  .native  modifier). These are essentially aliases of  $  and  $ , but are reactive. Combining these allows us to simplify a component like  this  down into this: <

Get start with Vue.js

Getting Started The official guide assumes intermediate level knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. If you are totally new to frontend development, it might not be the best idea to jump right into a framework as your first step - grasp the basics then come back! Prior experience with other frameworks helps, but is not required. The easiest way to try out Vue.js is using the   JSFiddle Hello World example . Feel free to open it in another tab and follow along as we go through some basic examples. Or, you can simply   create an   index.html   file   and include Vue with: < script src = "" > </ script > The   Installation   page provides more options of installing Vue. Note that we   do not   recommend beginners to start with   vue-cli , especially if you are not yet familiar with Node.js-based build tools. Declarative Rendering At the core of Vue.js is a system that enables us to declaratively render data to the DOM using st
