SphinxConnector.NET 4.0 has been released

by Dennis 18. April 2018 13:32

We’re pleased to announce that the next major release of SphinxConnector.NET is finally available for download and via NuGet!


  • Support for .NET Core via .NET Standard 2.0
  • Fully asynchronous implementations of both SphinxQL and fluent API
  • Numerous performance improvements

In addition, Manticore Search is now fully supported without the need to change the mysql_version_string setting.

Please note that in order to use the .NET Standard 2.0 build, you’ll have to install SphinxConnector.NET via NuGet.

Breaking changes

A new method named Metadata() has been added to IFulltextQuery which returns query metadata via an out parameter. Overloads of ToList(), First() etc. that previously returned query metadata that way have been removed.

JSON.NET is now an explicit dependency, previously it had been merged into the SphinxConnector.NET assembly.

We've also decided to not provide a special build for Mono anymore, as demand for this was virtually nonexistent.

For a full list of changes please refer to the version history.
