Changes in MySQL Connector/C 6.1.11 (2017-07-24)

Security Notes

* The linked OpenSSL library for MySQL Connector/C 6.1
Commercial has been updated to version 1.0.2l. 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. (Bug #26321042)

Bugs Fixed

* Microsoft Windows: Program Database (PDB) files (with
file name extension .pdb) for debugging now are available
as -debug Zip packages. They are intended for use with
the main Connector/C Zip packages and should be unpacked
on top of an unpacked main package. (Bug #23283189)

* If the mysql_stmt_close() C API function was called, it
freed memory that later could be accessed if
mysql_stmt_error(), mysql_stmt_errno(), or
mysql_stmt_sqlstate() was called. To obtain error
information after a call to mysql_stmt_close(), call
mysql_error(), mysql_errno(), or mysql_sqlstate()
instead. (Bug #25988703)
