Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.1.11, a new version of the ODBC driver for the
MySQL database management system, has been released. This release is
the latest release of the 5.1 series and is suitable for use with any
MySQL version since 4.1 (It will not work with 4.0 or earlier
The release is now available in source and binary form for a number of
platforms from our download pages at

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.:


The MySQL build team at Oracle


Functionality Added or Changed

  * A new connection option, prefetch, allows applications to
    scroll through large query result sets, N records at a time.
    See Section, "Connector/ODBC Connection Parameters"
    for details.

Bugs Fixed

  * The SQLTables() function did not return the catalog correctly
    if the wildcard or SQL_ALL_CATALOGS was used. (Bug #13914518)

  * The fraction member in SQL_TIMESTAMP_STRUCT was always set to
    0 when a timestamp was retrieved using SQLGetData(). The fix
    causes the fraction member to be correctly set, with a value
    representing nanoseconds. This issue did not occur when a
    result was retrieved as a string (SQLGetData() with
    SQL_C_CHAR). (Bug #12767740, Bug #60646)

  * Fractional seconds part of timestamp was ignored in prepared
    statements that use SQLBindParameter and SQL_C_TIMESTAMP type.
    For example, a prepared query comparing two timestamp values
    that only differed in the fractional part would consider the
    values identical. (Bug #12767761, Bug #60648)

  * On Windows platforms, some memory was leaked on each
    connection attempt due to an incorrect response to a
    SQLGetDiagRec() call. (Bug #11766029, Bug #59059)
