Changes in MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.3.0 (2024-01-16, General Availability)

Functionality Added or Changed

  • The AUTO_RECONNECT functionality was removed, and setting it returns SQL_SUCCESS_WITH_INFO with an HY000 error stating that it's no longer supported. The GUI dialog removed the AUTO_RECONNECT option while the myodbc-installer command-line tool allows setting it but emits a warning.

    MySQL Server 8.3.0 removed auto-reconnect support after deprecating it in versions 8.0.34 and 8.1.0. (WL #15978)

  • Improved OpenTelemetry support to propagate context when executing prepared statements. (WL #15960)

Bugs Fixed

  • ADODB.Recordset.Open() reported a transaction error when a string type was used with prepared statements. The fix was changing the SQL_MAX_CONCURRENT_ACTIVITIES value from 1 to 0 (unlimited). (Bug #36031548)

    References: This issue is a regression of: Bug #34916959.
