Changes in MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.18 (2019-10-14,
General Availability)

Bugs Fixed

     * On Linux, memory was leaked on each server connection
       attempt due to how mysql_server_end was implemented and
       executed. (Bug #26194929)

     * On Windows, fixed direct setlocale() usage for
       multi-threaded applications.
       The workaround was to add ;NO_LOCALE=1 to the connection
       Thanks to Jacques Germishuys for the patch.
       (Bug#24814467, Bug #83297)
