Changes in MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.14 (2019-01-21, General Availability)

Functionality Added or Changed

  • A new ENABLE_LOCAL_INFILE connection option was added to the connection string, DSN, and GUI. Disabled by default, set ENABLE_LOCAL_INFILE=1 to enable LOAD DATA operations. This toggles the MYSQL_OPT_LOCAL_INFILE mysql_options() option.

    The connection string overrides the DSN value if both are set.

  • MySQL Connector/ODBC is now compatible with MSVC 2017, while retaining compatibility with MSVC 2015:

    • Previously, Connector/ODBC binary distributions were compatible with projects built using MSVC 2015. Binary distributions now are compatible with projects built using MSVC 2017 or 2015.

    • Previously, Connector/ODBC source distributions could be built using MSVC 2015. Source distributions now can be built using MSVC 2017 or 2015.

    • Previously, the MSI installer accepted the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015. The MSI installer now accepts the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2017 or 2015.

  • Two informative text files were added: INFO_BIN contains information about the build environment used to produce the distribution, and INFO_SRC provides information about the product version and the source repository from which the distribution was produced. Source distributions include the INFO_SRC file only.
