mariadb-c-connector for MySQL 8.19

We've been using mariadb-c-connector-2.3.7 for MySQL 5.7. We upgraded MySQL to version 8.19 and the connector no longer works.

1. Which mariadb-c-connector version should we use for MySQL 8.19?

I cross-compliled mariadb-c-connector-3.1.8 and I notice that is no longer produced. Our library needs to link against this file.

2. Could you tell me what I need to do to connect to MySQL 8.19?

MySQL 8 has a new authentication protocol which was not supported before 3.0.8. See About MariaDB Connector/C.
