Functionality Added or Changed

* Default value of the connection property
allowLoadLocalInfile has been changed to false.
Applications that use the LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE
(http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/load-data.html)
statement on MySQL Server needs to set this property to
true explicitly. (Bug #29261254)
