MySQL Connector/ODBC Release Notes

2.3 Changes in MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.20 (2020-04-27, General Availability)

Functionality Added or Changed

  • On Debian, DEB packages are now released instead of TGZ files. The file base names are mysql-connector-odbc-* (driver package) and mysql-connector-odbc-setup (setup package). The setup package contains the GUI configuration widget library (libmyodbc8S.so) and depends on the driver package. The driver package depends on the unixODBC libraries (libodbc, libodbcinst); and does not conflict with the official Debian package (libmyoodbc).

Bugs Fixed

  • When using SQL_C_WCHAR with SQLGetData, binary data was not returned correctly as its hexacecimal representation. Related, using SQL_C_CHAR with SQLGetData did return binary data as hex. (Bug #28864788, Bug #92429)

  • When binding an SQL_BIT type column to the SQL_C_CHAR type, SQLFetchScroll would return the values as an integer instead of a char. (Bug #28484784, Bug #91904)
