Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.13 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

Changes in MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.13 (2018-10-22, General Availability)

   Functionality Added or Changed

     * Added dynamic libmysql linking support via the
       defaults to FALSE to enable dynamic linking.

   Bugs Fixed

     * Fixed column metadata handling with Microsoft Access.
       (Bug #28670725, Bug #91856)

     * The following obsolete options were removed: NO_SCHEMA
       (use NO_CATALOG instead), DISABLE_SSL_DEFAULT (use
       SSLMODE instead), and SSL_ENFORCE (use SSLMODE instead).
       (Bug #28407520)

     * The ODBC Driver returned 0 for the
       SQL_MAX_SCHEMA_NAME_LEN attribute, and now returns 64 as
       the maximum length for a MySQL schema name.
       (Bug #28385722)

     * Because the MySQL ODBC driver ignored the SQL_RD_OFF
       value for the SQL_ATTR_RETRIEVE_DATA attribute, it
       incorrectly kept writing into the data buffers. This led
       to write access violation errors when data was written
       into the buffer when the user application explicitly
       requested not to write there. (Bug #28098219, Bug #91060)

On Behalf of Oracle/MySQL Release Engineering Team,
