Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.2.5, a new version of the ODBC driver for the
MySQL database management system, has been released.

The available downloads include both a Unicode driver and an ANSI
driver based on the same modern codebase. Please select driver type
you need based on the type of your application - Unicode or ANSI.
Server-side prepared statements are enabled by default. It is suitable
for use with any MySQL version since 4.1 (It will not work with 4.0 or
earlier releases.)

The release is now available in source and binary form for a number of
platforms from our download pages at

For information on installing, please see the documentation at


The MySQL build team at Oracle


Changes in MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.2.5 (Not released)

   Bugs Fixed

     * The query_print() function could cause a serious error on
       32-bit systems due to a 32-bit / 64-bit mismatch in its return
       value. This error could occur when logging was enabled, for
       example when using configuration settings such as:


       (Bug #16367440, Bug #68201)

     * Microsoft Access could experience a severe error when updating
       a BIT column in view representing a MySQL table, for example
       through the datasheet interface. (Bug #16287859, Bug #68243)

     * Datetime and timestamp second fractions need removing the
       trailing zeros (Bug# 16294197/65418)

     * Binding string to decimal parameter always uses system locale
       setting (Bug# 11766369/59469)

     * Added CLEARTEXT authentication connection option
       ENABLE_CLEARTEXT_PLUGIN. (Bug#16445091)

     * Crash in SQLSetConnectAttr(SQL_ATTR_CURRENT_CATALOG)
       (Bug# 16526604/63844)

Built against the MySQL server 5.6.11 client library.
