Dear MySQL Users,
A new GA (general availability) version of MySQL Connector/C++ has
been made available: MySQL Connector/C++ 1.1.2 GA. The MySQL
Connector/C++ provides a C++ API for connecting client applications to
the MySQL Server 5.1 or newer. You can download the production release
The MySQL driver for C++ offers an easy to use API derived from JDBC
4.0. MySQL Workbench is using it successfully since years.
We have improved the driver since the last GA release. Please see the
documentation and the CHANGES file in the source distribution for a
detailed description of bugs that have been fixed. Bug descriptions are
also listed below.

Changes in MySQL Connector/CPP 1.1.2 (5 February, 2013)
* Connector/C++ applications could not handle connecting to the
server using an account for which the password had expired.
Connector/C++ now supports three new connection options:
+ OPT_CAN_HANDLE_EXPIRED_PASSWORDS: If true, this indicates
to the driver that the application can handle expired
If the application specifies
OPT_CAN_HANDLE_EXPIRED_PASSWORDS but the underlying
libmysql library does not support it, the driver returns
+ preInit: A string containing queries to run before driver
+ postInit: A string containing queries to run after driver
A new file driver/mysql_error.h is being added to the MSI
package. This file defines an enum DRIVER_ERROR, which
contains the definition of deCL_CANT_HANDLE_EXP_PWD.
In addition to the preceding changes, these problems with
Statement::executeUpdate were fixed:
+ If Statement::executeUpdate executed multiple statements,
the connection became unusable.
+ There was no exception if one of queries returned a
resultset. Now executeUpdate returns and update count for
the last executed query.
For example code showing how to use the new options, see the
file test/unit/bugs/bugs.cpp in the Connector/C++
distribution. (Bug #67325, Bug #15936764)
