The most recent stable release of MariaDB Connector/C is:
MariaDB Connector/C 3.0.5
Release date: 20 July 2017
This is a Stable (GA) release of the MariaDB Connector/C, formerly known as MariaDB Client Library for C.
For a description of this library see the MariaDB Connector/C page.
- Array support for prepared statements (bulk operations)
- TLS/SSL support for GnuTLS, Windows SChannel and LibreSSL
- Support for passphrase protected keys
- SHA256 authentication plugin
New API functions
- mariadb_get_info and mariadb_get_infov (variable argument list): for obtaining general and connection specific values.
- mariadb_get_charset_by_name and mariadb_get_charset_by_nr: returns character set information for a given internal number or name of character set. These functions have been previously used internally by MariaDB Connector/ODBC and are now exported, so they can be used also within plugins.
- mysql_reconnect which was used internally before (if the option MYSQL_OPT_RECONNECT was set) is now part of the API and can be used by applications and plugins to reestablish a failing connection
- mariadb_cancel: aborts a connection immediately by making all subsequent read/write operations fail
- mariadb_stmt_execute_direct: prepares and executes a prepared statement for one time execution
- mysql_stmt_warning_count returns: the number of warnings from the last executed statement
- mysql_reset_connection: resets the current connection and clears session state
- Functions for obtaining session state changes:
