The latest nuget package (MySql.Data 8.0.19) contains an unsigned version of Ubiety.Dns.Core.dll. This results in an exception while loading.

How to repeat:
1. Create a .NET application.
2. Install the nuget package MySql.Data 8.0.19
3. Run the .NET application.

Suggested fix:
Replace Ubiety.Dns.Core.dll with the strong name signed assembly.

Could anybody explain how to "Replace Ubiety.Dns.Core.dll with the strong name signed assembly."?

In my case, I just added a new reference to the NuGet package into my C# project: https://www.nuget.org/packages/Ubiety.Dns.Core/

In Package Manager Console, this worked, thanks! 
Install-Package Ubiety.Dns.Core -Version 2.4.1

To enable DNS-SRV in your .NET Framework project, avoid downloading the MySql.Data.dll package from the NuGet gallery. The package omits some libraries required by .NET Framework for this feature. Instead, download the no-install version of MySQL Connector/NET from https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/net/ and then add MySql.Data.dll as a reference to your project. No other references are required if all items remain in the same location.

.NET Core projects can use the NuGet package directly to enable the DNS-SRV feature.

Now the Ubiety.Dns.Core.dll are signed properly.

As the owner of the project Ubiety.Dns.Core I was interested in why you decided to include the library in your package instead of referencing mine as a dependency? If it is due to the signing I would recommend donating to the project instead of signing it yourself.

Hi, is this free to be used in commercial application?
