Subject:MySQL Connector/C++ 1.0.5 GA is available!
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL Users,

the first GA (general availability) version of MySQL Connector/C++ has 
been made available: MySQL Connector/C++ 1.0.5 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 at:

The MySQL driver for C++ offers an easy to use API derived from JDBC 
4.0. We use the MySQL Connector/C++ in two of our own products. A 
development version of MySQL Workbench is using it successfully since 
months. MySQL Connector/, an 3.1 extension, 
is a thin wrapper around the MySQL driver for C++.

We have improved the driver and added a couple of new features since the 
last beta release. Please see the documentation and the CHANGES file in 
the source distribution for a detailed description of bugs that have 
been fixed. The following features have been added:

  - Introduced unbuffered fetch for Statement.
  - Improved the memory management to not leak in exceptional situations.
  - ConnectionMetaData, ResultSetMetaData, ParameterMetaData now allow
    statements like: connection->getMetaData->getSchema().
  - Added SunConnect support to MSI installer.
  - Added "defaultStatementResultType" to Connection::setClientOption().
  - Added Result::getType() to the three result set classes.
  - Added better support for named pipes, on Windows.

You can find further details, including usages examples, in the 
documentation at:
