MariaDB Connector/ODBC 3.2.0 Alpha

MariaDB Connector/ODBC 3.2.0 is an Alpha (Development) release. Notable changes in this release include:

  • The SQLExecDirect ODBC API function uses the text protocol and client-side prepared statements (CSPS) by default
  • The PREPONCLIENT connection parameter can be enabled to make the SQLPrepare ODBC API function use the text protocol and client-side prepared statements (CSPS)
  • When the text protocol and client-side prepared statements (CSPS) are enabled and a statement is executed on arrays of parameters, Connector/ODBC can use batching over the text protocol
  • Connector/ODBC uses forward-only cursors by default to be more compliant with the ODBC specification
  • When the SQLTables ODBC API function is called and the CatalogName argument is NULL, Connector/ODBC’s behavior is more consistent with other ODBC drivers
  • When performance_schema is enabled, Connector/ODBC supports connection attributes that can be queried via the performance_schema.session_account_connect_attrs and performance_schema.session_connect_attrs tables
