Dear MySQL users,
MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.3.13, 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 5.6.
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 5.3.13 (2019-04-29, General Availability)
* Connector/ODBC 5.3 is now built with MySQL client library
5.7.26, which includes OpenSSL 1.0.2R. Issues fixed in
the new OpenSSL version are described at
* An exception was emitted when fetching contents of a
BLOB/TEXT records after executing a statement as a
server-side prepared statement with a bound parameter.
The workaround is not using parameters or specifying
NO_SSPS=1 in the connection string; this allows the
driver to fetch the data. (Bug #29282638, Bug #29512548,
Bug #28790708, Bug #93895, Bug #94545, Bug #92078)
