Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.2.0 alpha, a new version of the ODBC driver for
the MySQL database management system, is available for download. The
5.2 driver series is suitable for use with any MySQL server version
since 4.1. (It will not work with 4.0 or earlier releases.)

This new version of MySQL Connector/ODBC combines both existing driver
series, the ANSI driver is an upgrade to the 3.51 series, and the
Unicode driver is an upgrade to the 5.1 series.

The alpha release is available now, in source and binary form for a
number of platforms, from our download pages at

and mirror sites. Note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at
this point in time, so if you can't find this version on some mirror,
please try again later or choose another download site.

For information on installing, please see the documentation at

We welcome and appreciate your feedback, bug reports, bug fixes,
patches, etc.:


The MySQL Connectors team at Oracle

   Functionality added or changed:

   * Driver available in Unicode and ANSI versions (WL#5850)
   * Driver uses server side prepared statements by default
   * Connection string option NO_SSPS prevents usage of server side
     prepared statements. This is configurable via a GUI dialog.

   Bugs fixed:

   * Long table names crashed OBDC driver. (Bug# 14085211/65200)
