Changes in MySQL Connector/C++ 8.2.0 (2023-10-25, General Availability)

Packaging Notes

  • The MSI package definition files have been updated to work with the Windows Installer XML Toolset (WiX) version 4.0.1. Note that the files can no longer be used with previous version 3 of the toolset. (WL #15846)

Functionality Added or Changed

  • Improved OpenTelemetry support. This includes adding spans for preparing and executing prepared statements, and adding connection span attributes such as db.user. (WL #15808)

  • Connector/C++ now supports WebAuthn authentication for client applications using the legacy JBDC API (that is, applications not using X DevAPI or X DevAPI for C). WebAuthn authentication enables users to authenticate to MySQL Server using WebAuthn-aware devices based on either the FIDO or FIDO2 standard. For an overview of the supported client-side authentication plugins and authentication methods, see Authentication Support. (WL #15239)
