MySQL Connector/C++ 1.1.9 has been released

Dear MySQL Users,

A new GA (general availability) version of MySQL Connector/C++ has
been made available: MySQL Connector/C++ 1.1.9 GA. The MySQL
Connector/C++ provides a C++ API for connecting client applications to
the MySQL Server 5.5 or newer.

You can download the production release at:

http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/cpp/1.1.html

MySQL Connector C++ (Commercial) will be available for download on the
My Oracle Support (MOS) website. This release will be available on eDelivery
(OSDC) in next month’s upload cycle.

The MySQL driver for C++ offers an easy to use API derived from JDBC
4.0. MySQL Workbench has used it successfully for years.

We have improved the driver since the last GA release. Please see the
documentation and the CHANGES file in the source distribution for a
detailed description of bugs that have been fixed. Bug descriptions are
also listed below.

Enjoy!

Changes in MySQL Connector/C++ 1.1.9 (2017-05-16, General Availability)

Compilation Notes

* The Windows version of Connector/C++ Community is now
built using the dynamic C++ runtime library (that is, with the
/MD compiler option), with the following implications for users:

+ Target hosts running Windows applications that use
Connector/C++ Community now need the Visual C++
Redistributable for Visual Studio 2013
(https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784)
installed on them.

+ Client applications on Windows that use Connector/C++
Community should be compiled with the /MD compiler option.

Security Notes

* The linked OpenSSL library for Connector/C++ 1.1.9
Commercial has been updated to version 1.0.2k. For a description
of issues fixed in this version, see
http://www.openssl.org/news/vulnerabilities.html
This change does not affect the Oracle-produced MySQL Community
build of Connector/C++, which uses the yaSSL library instead.

Bugs Fixed

* Values returned by getDouble() from DOUBLE table columns
were truncated (decimal part missing) if the locale was set to
fr_CA, which uses comma as the decimal separator. (Bug
#17227390, Bug #69719)

* Connections to localhost failed if the local server was
bound only to its IPv6 interface. (Bug #17050354, Bug #69663)
