Subject:MySQL Connector/ODBC 3.51.15 is available!
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/ODBC 3.51.15, a new version of the ODBC driver for the
MySQL database system, has been released.  This release is the latest
release of the 3.51 series and is suitable for use with any MySQL
version including MySQL 4.1, 5.0, or 5.1.

  WARNING

  While we consider this a production release, we recommend caution in
  upgrading due to changes in our build procedures, and the large number
  of bug fixes that have gone into the most recent releases.

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

   http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/3.51.html

and mirror sites. Note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at this
point in time, so if you can't find this version on some mirror, please try
again later or choose another download site.

We welcome and appreciate your feedback, bug reports, bug fixes, patches, etc.:

Platform notes:
* There are no binary packages for Microsoft Windows x64 Edition.
* The Mac OS X binary packages are only provided as tarballs, there is no
  installer.
* There is no binary package for Mac OS X on 64-bit PowerPC because Apple
  does not currently provide a 64-bit PowerPC version of iODBC.
* The HP-UX 11.23 IA64 binary package does not include the GUI bits because
  of problems building Qt on that platform.
* The binary packages for Sun Solaris are only provided as tarballs, not
  the PKG format.

Changes since the last release:

  Bugs fixed:
  * SQLGetFunctions() reported that the driver supported SQLProcedureColumns(),
    even though it does not. (Bug #27591)
  * The row status array given to SQLExtendedFetch() was being stored
    as SQL_ATTR_ROW_STATUS_PTR, which could cause it to be used when it
    should not.
  * SQLSetPos() would not update a row unless all columns were bound,
    but it should only require that at least one column is bound and
    not set to be ignored.
  * SQLBulkOperations() and SQLSetPos() used the wrong indicator variable
    values when batch-inserting rows. (Bug #24306)
  * SQLGetConnectAttr() would report an incorrect isolation level if it
    was not explicitly set using SQLSetConnectAttr(). (Bug #27589)
  * The last argument of SQLColAttribute() and SQLColAttributes() was
    always being treated as a pointer to an SQLINTEGER even though it is
    sometimes a pointer to an SQLLEN.
  * SQLForeignKeys would return keys from the wrong tables due to improper
    handling of table names. (Bug #4518)
  * Changed the behavior of myodbc3i utility, so it loads the driver library
    prior to the setup library when creating a new DSN (Bug #27220)
  * SQLProcedures returned incomplete and incorrect information. (Bug #23033)
  * Statements that used "WHERE CURRENT OF" for positioned updates could
    not be re-executed or used with parameters that were provided using
    SQLPutData() and SQLParamData(). (Bug #5853)
  * SQLTransact() did not commit or rollback all transactions in the
    environment when no database connection was specified. (Bug #21588)
  * Updated use of FIELD_TYPE_* to MYSQL_TYPE_*, which has been preferred
    since the 3.23 days. (And FIELD_TYPE_* may finally disappear in 5.2.)

Enjoy!
