Dear MySQL users,
MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.13 is a new version in the MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0 series, the ODBC driver for the MySQL Server.
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 server version from 5.5.
This release of the MySQL ODBC driver is 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 8.0.13 (2018-10-22, General Availability)
Functionality Added or Changed
- Added dynamic libmysql linking support via the
-DMYSQLCLIENT_STATIC_LINKING:BOOL=TRUE|FALSEoption; defaults to
FALSEto enable dynamic linking.
- Fixed column metadata handling with Microsoft Access.
(Bug #28670725, Bug #91856)
- The following obsolete options were removed:
SSLMODEinstead). (Bug #28407520)
- The ODBC Driver returned 0 for the
SQL_MAX_SCHEMA_NAME_LENattribute, and now returns 64 as the maximum length for a MySQL schema name.
- Because the MySQL ODBC driver ignored the
SQL_RD_OFFvalue for the
SQL_ATTR_RETRIEVE_DATAattribute, it incorrectly kept writing into the data buffers. This led to write access violation errors when data was written into the buffer when the user application explicitly requested not to write there.
