MariaDB Connector/ODBC 3.0.0 Alpha Release Notes
Release date: 19 Jan 2017
This is an Alpha release of MariaDB Connector/ODBC 3.0.
As with any other pre-production release, caution should be taken when installing this alpha release on production systems or systems with critical data. Not all of the features planned for the stable (GA) MariaDB Connector/ODBC 3.0 release are implemented yet.
MariaDB Connector/ODBC 3.0.0 is built on top of MariaDB Connector/C 3.0 and uses the binary prepared statement protocol.
SQLExecDirect calls, uses the
C API command, which is faster than using
mysql_stmt_prepare + mysql_stmt_execute,
but only with MariaDB 10.2 server.
This release was built with SSL support. You can use SSLKEY, SSLCERT, SSLCA, SSLCAPATH, SSLCIPHER, SSLVERIFY, SSLCRL and SSLCRLPATH connection string/DSN options to configure your connection properties.
Internally, Connector/ODBC 3.0 depends much less on Connector/C internal features than previous versions, with the eventual goal of only using the open Connector/C API.
