Changes in MySQL Connector/C 6.1.10 (2017-04-28, General Availability)

Compilation Notes

  • The Windows version of MySQL Connector/C Community is now built using the dynamic C runtime libraries (that is, with the /MD compiler option), with the following implications for users:

    • Target hosts running Windows applications that use MySQL Connector/C Community now need the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 installed on them.

    • Client applications on Windows that use MySQL Connector/C Community should be compiled with the /MD compiler option.

Security Notes

  • The linked OpenSSL library for MySQL Connector/C 6.1 Commercial has been updated to version 1.0.2k. For a description of issues fixed in this version, see http://www.openssl.org/news/vulnerabilities.html.

    This change does not affect the Oracle-produced MySQL Community build of Connector/C, which uses the yaSSL library instead. (Bug #25615447)
