MySQL Connector/C++ 1.1.12 has been released

Dear MySQL Users,

A new GA (general availability) version of MySQL Connector/C++ has
been made available: MySQL Connector/C++ 1.1.12 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:

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.

The MySQL driver for C++ offers an easy to use API derived from JDBC
4.0. MySQL Workbench has used it successfully for years.

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.


Changes in MySQL Connector/C++ 1.1.12 (2019-01-28, General

Compilation Notes

     * Connector/C++ now compiles against MySQL 5.5 and 5.6.
       Thanks to Marco Busemann for the patch. (Bug #28280066,
       Bug #91529)

Security Notes

     * Connector/C++ now supports the improvements to named-pipe
       access control implemented for MySQL Server and controlled by the
       named_pipe_full_access_group system variable.

Bugs Fixed

     * Compiling Connector/C++ from source using dynamic linking
       resulted in link errors for the mysql_sys and mysql_strings
       libraries. (Bug #27961505, Bug #90727)

Enjoy and thanks for the support!
