MySQL Connector/C 6.1.1 has been released

Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/C 6.1.1, a new version of the C API for client/server communication for the MySQL database management system, has been released. This version of Connector/C provides full support for MySQL 5.6 protocol. Connector/C is compatible with the client libraries (libmysql).

It includes all the features in the MySQL client library shipped with MySQL servers 5.6 as well as prior versions. You can recompile existing code linked with Connector/C 6.1.0 without any code changes. You can use Connector/C to run and build client applications which communicate with MySQL server versions from 4.1 to 5.6 without a need to do a complete server installation. 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/c/

For information on installing, please see the documentation at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-c/en/connector-c-installation.html

Changes in MySQL Connector/C 6.1.1

Functionality Added or Changed

  • The C API libmysqlclient shared-library .so files now have version 18.1.0 (up from version 18.0.0 used in 6.1.0). (Bug #16809055)

MySQL Connector/J 5.1.26 has been released

MySQL Connector/J 5.1.26, a maintenance release of the production 5.1 branch has been released. Connector/J is the Type-IV pure-Java JDBC driver for MySQL. Version 5.1.26 is suitable for use with many MySQL server versions, including 4.1, 5.0, 5.1, 5.4, 5.5 and 5.6. It is already available for download on the My Oracle Support (MOS) website. The eDelivery download will be available on it's own regular schedule. As always, we recommend that you check the "CHANGES" file in the download archive to be aware of changes in behavior that might affect your application.

MySQL Connector/J 5.1.26 includes the following general bug fixes and improvements, also available in more detail here

Functionality Added or Changed:

  • Added a toString() method to the PreparedStatementWrapper class to help debug prepared statements. (Bug #42267, Bug #11751418)

Bugs Fixed :

  • Connector/J silently ignored calls to ResultSet.updateRow when  the cursor was on the insert row. This fix ensures that an SQLException is thrown with those calls, as described in the JDBC specification. (Bug #45757, Bug #11754192)
  • The results returned by the method DatabaseMetaData.getIndexInfo() were not sorted in the order described in the JDBC specification (NON_UNIQUE, TYPE,   INDEX_NAME, and ORDINAL_POSITION). (Bug #68098, Bug #16224299)
  • DatabaseMetaData.getColumns() threw an  MySQLSyntaxErrorException if the schema contains tables with  ANSI quoted names with leading and trailing back quotes (`).    When those names were passed as parameters in unquoted form, Connector/J treated them as quoted because of the back quotes, and thus the error. This fix adds the behavior that when the connection property pedantic was set to true, methods like DatabaseMetaData.getColumns() treat all parameters as unquoted. (Bug #65871, Bug #14598704).
  • An out of memory error occured when the compression protocol was enabled with the connection option useCompression=true. This fix stops the memory leak that caused the error by making sure that CompressedInputStream releases its reference to the  connection object when the input stream closes. (Bug #68400, Bug #16478043)
