Dear MySQL Users, A new GA (general availability) version of MySQL Connector/C++ has been made available: MySQL Connector/C++ 1.1.8 GA. The MySQL Connector/C++ provides a C++ API for connecting client applications to the MySQL Server 5.5 or newer. You can download the production release at: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/cpp/1.1.html MySQL Connector C++ (Commercial) will be available for download on the My Oracle Support (MOS) website. This release will be available on eDelivery (OSDC) in next month's upload cycle. The MySQL driver for C++ offers an easy to use API derived from JDBC 4.0. MySQL Workbench has used it successfully for years. We have improved the driver since the last GA release. Please see the documentation and the CHANGES file in the source distribution for a detailed description of bugs that have been fixed. Bug descriptions are also listed below. Enjoy! ====================================================================== Changes in MySQL Connector/C++ 1.1.8 (2016-12-16, General Availability) Security Notes * OpenSSL is ending support for version 1.0.1 in December 2016; see https://www.openssl.org/policies/releasestrat.html. Consequently, Connector/C++ Commercial builds now use version 1.0.2 rather than version 1.0.1, and the linked OpenSSL library for the Connector/C++ Commercial has been updated from version 1.0.1 to version 1.0.2j. For a description of issues fixed in this version, see https://www.openssl.org/news/vulnerabilities.html. This change does not affect Oracle-produced MySQL Community builds of Connector/C++, which use the yaSSL library instead. Functionality Added or Changed * Connector/C++ now supports a OPT_TLS_VERSION connection option for specifying the protocols permitted for encrypted connections. The option value is string containing a comma-separated list of one or more protocol names. Example: connection_properties["OPT_TLS_VERSION"] = sql::SQLString("TLSv1.1,TLS v1.2"); The permitted values depend on the SSL library used to compile MySQL: TLSv1, TLSv1.1, TLSv1.2 if OpenSSL was used; TLSv1 and TLSv1.1 if yaSSL was used. The default is to permit all available protocols. 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 #23496967) * Connector/C++ now supports a OPT_SSL_MODE connection option for specifying the security state of the connection to the server. Permitted option values are SSL_MODE_PREFERRED (the default), SSL_MODE_DISABLED, SSL_MODE_REQUIRED, SSL_MODE_VERIFY_CA, and SSL_MODE_VERIFY_IDENTITY. These values correspond to the values of the --ssl-mode option supported by MySQL client programs; see Command Options for Secure Connections (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/secure-connection -options.html). For example, this setting specifies that the connection should be unencrypted: connection_properties["OPT_SSL_MODE"] = sql::SSL_MODE_DISABLED; The OPT_SSL_MODE option comprises the capabilities of the sslEnforce and sslVerify connection options. Consequently, both of those options are now deprecated. (Bug #23496952) * Connector/C++ now supports OPT_MAX_ALLOWED_PACKET and OPT_NET_BUFFER_LENGTH connection options. Each option takes a numeric value. They correspond to the MYSQL_OPT_MAX_ALLOWED_PACKET and MYSQL_OPT_NET_BUFFER_LENGTH options for the mysql_options() C API function. * Issues compiling Connector/C++ under Visual Studio 2015 were corrected. Bugs Fixed * A segmentation fault could occur for attempts to insert a large string using a prepared statement. (Bug #23212333, Bug #81213) * The certification verification checks that are enabled by the verifySSL connection option were not performed properly. (Bug #22931974) * Connector/C++ failed to compile against a version of the MySQL C API older than 5.7. (Bug #22838573, Bug #80539, Bug #25201287) On Behalf of the MySQL/ORACLE RE Team Daniel Horecki
