This section is only for users who are interested in helping us test our new code. To just get MySQL Connector/ODBC up and running on your system, use a standard release distribution.
The Connector/ODBC code repository uses Git. To check out the latest source code, visit GitHub: https://github.com/mysql/mysql-connector-odbc To clone the Git repository to your machine, use this command
git clone https://github.com/mysql/mysql-connector-odbc.git
You should now have a copy of the entire Connector/ODBC source tree in
build and then install the driver libraries from this source
tree on Unix or Linux, use the same steps outlined in
Section 5.4.5, “Building Connector/ODBC from a Source Distribution on Unix”.
On Windows, make use of Windows Makefiles
WIN-Makefile_debug in building the driver.
For more information, see
Section 5.4.4, “Building Connector/ODBC from a Source Distribution on Windows”.
After the initial checkout operation to get the source tree, run git pull periodically to update your source according to the latest version.
