Changes in MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.2.4 (2013-02-05)

This release fixes any bugs encountered since Connector/ODBC 5.2.3. Its main focus is on compatibility with the latest features of MySQL 5.6.

Functionality Added or Changed

  • The new connection option can_handle_exp_pwd indicates that your application includes error-handling logic to deal with the error code for an expired password. See Connector/ODBC Connection Parameters for the details of this connection option and the associated SQL state and native error code. See ALTER USER Syntax for details about password expiration for MySQL server accounts.

    This new option is added to the Windows GUI, through a checkbox Can Handle Expired Password on the Connection tab of the Details dialog.

  • The following reserved words were added to the list returned by the SQLGetInfo() ODBC function, for compatibility with the latest MySQL 5.6 syntax:

    • GET




    • ONE_SHOT




Bugs Fixed

  • When a column with type TINYTEXT, TEXT, MEDIUMTEXT, or LONGTEXT was retrieved from a table with a binary collation, the text fields were converted to a hexadecimal representation, even though these values were not really BLOBs. The unnecessary conversion could expand the data, causing overflow problems when storing the result values. (Bug #11746572, Bug #27282)
