Dear MySQL users, MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.23 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 the latest MySQL server version 8.0. 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 out (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 https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/ For information on installing, please see the documentation at https://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-odbc/en/connector-odbc-installation.html Enjoy and thanks for your support! Changes in MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.23 (2021-01-18, General Availability) Bugs Fixed * Using the commercial glib package (authentication_ldap_sasl) with auth using GSSAPI (authentication_ldap_sasl_auth_method_name='GSSAPI') did not function. Added the missing sasl2 modules package. (Bug #32175842) * On Debian based systems, the post-installation script uses dpkg-architecture ODBC drivers path, so the associated dpkg-dev package was added as a runtime dependency. (Bug #32157740) * Microsoft Access halted when opening a linked table with only a JSON column. The JSON column type is now supported, and JSON data is only editable if another column is used as a primary key. Because JSON is a long data type with the maximum length of 4GB, it can't be used as a primary key by Microsoft Access and therefore tables having only JSON columns are only available in read-only mode. (Bug #32114901) * Removed the mysql-client-plugins dependency. It remains required for connections using commercial MySQL server accounts with LDAP authentication, so must be manually installed for that situation. The mysql-client-plugins package has conflicts with MySQL server versions before 8.0.21, so earlier versions (such as MySQL 5.7) require an 8.0 server upgrade to use it. (Bug #31875490) * On macOS, Connector/ODBC would not report an error if SQL_ATTR_PARAMSET_SIZE was set but not supported; instead the setting was ignored.
