MySQL Connector/ODBC Release Notes

2.6 Changes in MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.13 (2018-10-22, General Availability)

Functionality Added or Changed

  • Added dynamic libmysql linking support via the -DMYSQLCLIENT_STATIC_LINKING:BOOL=TRUE|FALSE option; defaults to FALSE to enable dynamic linking.

Bugs Fixed

  • Fixed column metadata handling with Microsoft Access. (Bug #28670725, Bug #91856)

  • The following obsolete options were removed: NO_SCHEMA (use NO_CATALOG instead), DISABLE_SSL_DEFAULT (use SSLMODE instead), and SSL_ENFORCE (use SSLMODE instead). (Bug #28407520)

  • The ODBC Driver returned 0 for the SQL_MAX_SCHEMA_NAME_LEN attribute, and now returns 64 as the maximum length for a MySQL schema name. (Bug #28385722)

  • Because the MySQL ODBC driver ignored the SQL_RD_OFF value for the SQL_ATTR_RETRIEVE_DATA attribute, it incorrectly kept writing into the data buffers. This led to write access violation errors when data was written into the buffer when the user application explicitly requested not to write there. (Bug #28098219, Bug #91060)
