Dear MySQL users,
MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.3.12, a new version of the ODBC driver for the
MySQL database management system, has been released.
The available downloads include both a Unicode driver and an ANSI
driver based on the same modern codebase. Please select the driver
type you need based on the type of your application – Unicode or ANSI.
Server-side prepared statements are enabled by default. It is suitable
for use with any MySQL version from 5.5.
This is the sixth release of the MySQL ODBC driver conforming to the
ODBC 3.8 specification. It contains implementations of key 3.8
features, including self-identification as a ODBC 3.8 driver,
streaming of output parameters (supported for binary types only), and
support of the SQL_ATTR_RESET_CONNECTION connection attribute (for the
Unicode driver only).
The release is now available in source and binary form for a number of
platforms from our download pages at
For information on installing, please see the documentation at
Changes in MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.3.12 (2019-01-28, General Availability) Functionality Added or Changed * A new ENABLE_LOCAL_INFILE connection option was added to the connection string, DSN, and GUI. Disabled by default, set ENABLE_LOCAL_INFILE=1 to enable LOAD DATA operations. This toggles the MYSQL_OPT_LOCAL_INFILE mysql_options() option. The connection string overrides the DSN value if both are set. Bugs Fixed * Dynamic linking (-DCLIENT_STATIC_LINKING:BOOL=false) was not functioning, and updating to the most recent MySQL Server 5.7 headers restored this functionality. (Bug #28609434, Bug #92319, Bug #91841) * Calling SQLBulkOperations with no_ssps set to 0 and cursortype set to SQL_CURSOR_DYNAMIC would cause an unexpected halt when using the generic Linux binaries. (Bug #28289320)
