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_kerberosserver-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.
