- Subject: MySQL Connector/C++ 1.1.7 has been released
Dear MySQL Users,
A new GA (general availability) version of MySQL Connector/C++ has
been made available: MySQL Connector/C++ 1.1.7 GA. The MySQL
Connector/C++ provides a C++ API for connecting client applications to
the MySQL Server 5.5 or newer.
You can download the production release at:
MySQL Connector C++ (Commercial) will be available for download on the
My Oracle Support (MOS) website. This release will be available on eDelivery
(OSDC) in next month's upload cycle.
The MySQL driver for C++ offers an easy to use API derived from JDBC
4.0. MySQL Workbench has used it successfully for years.
We have improved the driver since the last GA release. Please see the
documentation and the CHANGES file in the source distribution for a
detailed description of bugs that have been fixed. Bug descriptions are
also listed below.
Changes in MySQL Connector/C++ 1.1.7
* Binary distributions for this release of MySQL
Connector/C++ were linked against libmysqlclient from
MySQL 5.7.10, except for OS X 10.8/10.9, for which
distributions were linked against MySQL 5.7.9. This
enables Connector/C++ to take advantage of features
present in recent client library versions. Some examples:
+ Support for the MySQL JSON data type is available.
Current versions of MySQL Workbench require JSON
support, so to build MySQL Workbench 6.3.5 or higher
from source, it is necessary to use a version of
Connector/C++ at least as recent as 1.1.7.
+ Applications will attempt to establish a secure
(encrypted) connection by default whenever the
server is enabled to support secure connections, and
fall back to an unencrypted connection otherwise.
(This is as described at Configuring MySQL to Use
To enforce a secure connection, such that an error occurs
if secure connections are not available, applications can
enable the sslEnforce connection option.
To build Connector/C++ from source, you must use either a
General Availability version of MySQL 5.7 (5.7.9 or
higher) or Connector/C 6.1.8 or higher. Set the MYSQL_DIR
CMake option appropriately at configuration time as
necessary. (Bug #22351273)
* The linked OpenSSL library for Connector/C++ Commercial
has been updated to version 1.0.1q. Issues fixed in the
new OpenSSL version are described at
This change does not affect Oracle-produced MySQL
Community builds of Connector/C++, which use the yaSSL
Spatial Data Support
* The required version of the Boost library for
Connector/C++ builds has been raised to 1.56.0.
* MySQL_Prepared_ResultSet::relative() failed to fetch the
record due to a missing proxy->fetch() call. (Bug
* During Connector/C++ builds, the MySQL Server CXXFLAGS
and CFLAGS values were used rather than the system
default values. To specify explicitly to use the server
values, enable the new USE_SERVER_CXXFLAGS CMake option.
