Dear MySQL Users, A new GA (general availability) version of MySQL Connector/C has been made available: MySQL Connector/C 6.1.9 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/c/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. 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 6.1.9 (2017-01-10, 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. (Bug #24753384) * A new MYSQL_OPT_TLS_VERSION option is available for the mysql_options() C API function to indicate the protocols permitted by the client for encrypted connections. For more information, see mysql_options() (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/mysql-options.html). (Bug #22932026) * A new MYSQL_OPT_SSL_MODE option is available for the mysql_options() C API function to indicate the security state to use for the connection to the server. For more information, see mysql_options() (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/mysql-options.html). (Bug #22931973) Functionality Added or Changed * Previously, Connector/C permitted user names up to a maximum of 16 characters. Connector/C now permits longer user names (up to 32 characters) if the server does. (Bug #22931954) * Connector/C now includes support for the server GTID session tracker, introduced in MySQL 5.7.6. This tracker is exposed through the session_track_gtids system variable. (Bug #21040741) * Connector/C now includes support for additional ranges of server errors, introduced in MySQL 5.7.6. (Bug #21040703) On Behalf of the MySQL/ORACLE RE Team Piotr Obrzut
