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

Functionality Added or Changed

  • Packaging: On Windows, the MSI package definition files were updated to work with the Windows Installer XML (WiX) toolset version 4. Note that they can no longer be used with previous version 3 of the toolset. (WL #15810)

  • Improved OpenTelemetry support. This includes adding spans for preparing and executing prepared statements, and adding connection span attributes such as db.user. (WL #15807)

  • Connector/ODBC now supports an authentication method that enables users to authenticate to MySQL Server using WebAuthn-aware devices for classic MySQL protocol connections. WebAuthn authentication is based on the FIDO and FIDO2 standards. For additional information, see Connector/ODBC WebAuthn and FIDO Information (WL #15240)

Bugs Fixed

  • Setting SQL mode to ANSI_QUOTES on the MySQL server caused the SQLColumns() method to not function. (Bug #35660375)

  • Using the SJIS character set with the ANSI Driver could cause the connection to hang. (Bug #35520983)

  • The SQLStatistics() function returned the wrong type for a PRIMARY KEY index. It now returns SQL_INDEX_OTHER instead of 0. (Bug #35504650)

  • Selecting the Character Set dropdown under Details while creating a new Data Source Configuration in the GUI would unexpectedly halt the application if the credential fields were empty or invalid. (Bug #110900, Bug #35356536)
