What’s New in MariaDB Connector/ODBC 3.0

We are pleased to announce the general availability (GA) of MariaDB Connector/ODBC 3.0. MariaDB Connector/ODBC 3.0.2 is the newest version of MariaDB Connector/ODBC. This release is compatible with MariaDB Connector/ODBC 2.0 – no code changes necessary to upgrade.

MariaDB Connector/ODBC 3.0 is based on the new MariaDB Connector/C 3.0. It therefore takes advantage of the new security enhancements and plugins provided by MariaDB Connector/C.

Direct dependencies to functions of MariaDB Connector/C have been removed, only the functions provided by the documented API are used. This allows dynamic linking where preferred. Our own binaries still use the static linking.

New features

  • Support of a new bulk load implementation (needs MariaDB Server 10.2)
  • SQLExecDirect, Prepares and executes a statement directly (needs MariaDB Server 10.2)
  • New SSL options based on the implementation in MariaDB Connector/C
    •  GnuTLS
    • Windows SChannel: removes dependencies on external libraries
    • Windows SChannel: becomes the default for SSL on Windows
    • TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2 support
  • SSL option can now be defined in the setup dialog
