Dear MySQL users, MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.3.7, 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 fourth 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). Also, Connector/ODBC 5.3 introduces a GTK+-based setup library providing a GUI DSN setup dialog on some Unix-based systems, currently included in the Debian 7/8, EL6/OL6, EL7/OL7 (64-bit only), Fedora 24/25, FreeBSD 10/11, SLES 12, Ubuntu 12/14/16 packages. Other new features in the 5.3 driver are FileDSN and Bookmarks support. The release is now available in source and binary form for a number of platforms from our download pages at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/5.3.html For information on installing, please see the documentation at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-odbc/en/connector-odbc -installation.html Enjoy! The MySQL Connectors team at Oracle Changes in MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.3.7 (2016-12-13) Security Notes * Security Fix: The linked OpenSSL library for Connector/ODBC Commercial 5.3.7 has been updated from version 1.0.1q to version 1.0.2j. Versions of OpenSSL prior to 1.0.2j are reported to be vulnerable to CVE-2016-6304 (http://www.cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-20 16-6304). This change does not affect the Oracle-produced MySQL Community build of Connector/ODBC 5.3.7, which uses the yaSSL library instead. (Bug #24753385, CVE-2016-6304) Functionality Added or Changed * A new configuration option, SSL_MODE, has been introduced for setting the SSL mode of the connection to the server. This option overrides the now deprecated sslverify and SSL_ENFORCE options. See Connector/ODBC DSN Configuration Options (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-odbc/en/connector-o dbc-configuration-connection-parameters.html#codbc-dsn-co nfig-options) for details. (Bug #23497043) * Added new configuration option NO_TLS_1_0, NO_TLS_1_1, and NO_TLS_1_2 for controlling TLS versions for encrypting connecting. See Connector/ODBC DSN Configuration Options (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-odbc/en/connector-o dbc-configuration-connection-parameters.html#codbc-dsn-co nfig-options) for details. For more information about connection protocols in MySQL, see Secure Connection Protocols and Ciphers (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/secure-connection -protocols-ciphers.html). (Bug #23496903) Bugs Fixed * An assertion failure occurred when mysql_stmt_close() (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/mysql-stmt-close. html) was called on a broken connection. (Bug #25109356) * Connector/ODBC could not be built with CMake 3.0.2 or later. The build script has been fixed to correct the issue. (Bug #22746557) On behalf on the MySQL RE Team. -Sreedhar S
