Subject:MySQL Connector/ODBC 3.51.12 has been released
View as plain text  
MySQL Connector/ODBC 3.51.12, a new version of the ODBC driver for the 
MySQL database system, has been released.  This release is the latest 
production release of the 3.51 series and is suitable for use with any 
MySQL version including MySQL 4.1 or 5.0.

It is now available in source and binary form from the Connector/ODBC 
download pages at and mirror sites 
(note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point in time 
- if you can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later 
or choose another download site.)

This release includes many fixes to address issues with the end-user 
experience and the nuts & bolts developer experience.

Known Issues
1. This release was built using the MySQL v5 client software and as such 
will  work with any current version of MySQL server. However; it does 
not fully  support all features in MySQL v5. For example; catalog 
function for  stored procedures and server side cursors. Connector/ODBC 
v5 will address  these and other issues.

2. Not all known bugs have been resolved in this release. Please see the 
bugs database for information on new and existing bugs.

3. We have changed to a wix based installer. Please uninstall any 
existing MyODBC install (and remove any lingering *myodbc* files from 
system32) before installing Connector/ODBC 3.51.12.
