MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.14 has been released

Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.14 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

could be built using MSVC 2015. Source distributions
now can be built using MSVC 2017 or 2015.

+ Previously, the MSI installer accepted the Visual
C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015. The MSI

the distribution was produced. Source distributions
include the INFO_SRC file only.

  1. Using

    mysql-connector-java-8.0.14 on OSX, with Oracle SQLdeveloper

    when I try to connect top MySQL host (linux, MySQL 5.7) I get this error

    Status : Failure -Test failed: The server time zone value ‘EDT’ is unrecognized or represents more than one time zone. You must configure either the server or JDBC driver (via the serverTimezone configuration property) to use a more specific time zone value if you want to utilize time zone support.

    The system time the server is set to “America/New_York” and my Mac is set to Eastern Standard Time and the times are in sync.

    How do I fix this?
