Changes in MySQL Connector/C++ 8.0.27 (2021-10-19, General Availability)

Pluggable Authentication

  • In Connector/C++ 8.0.26, the capability was introduced for applications that use the legacy JDBC API to establish connections for accounts that use the authentication_kerberos server-side authentication plugin, provided that the correct Kerberos tickets are available or can be obtained from Kerberos. That capability was available on client hosts running Linux only. It is now available on client hosts running Windows.

    For more information about Kerberos authentication, see Kerberos Pluggable Authentication.

Bugs Fixed

  • When linking to the static Connector/C++ library on Windows, builds failed unless Dnsapi.DLL was added to the linker invocation line explicitly. (Bug #33190431)
