Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.14 is a new version in the MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0 series,
the ODBC driver for the MySQL Server.

The available downloads include both a Unicode driver and an ANSI driver based on the same modern codebase. Please select the driver type you need based on the type of your application - Unicode or ANSI. Server-side prepared statements are enabled by default.
It is suitable for use with any MySQL server version from 5.5.

This release of the MySQL ODBC driver is conforming to the ODBC 3.8 specification. It contains implementations of key 3.8 features, including self-identification as a ODBC 3.8 driver, streaming of output parameters (supported for binary types only), and support of the SQL_ATTR_RESET_CONNECTION connection attribute (for the
Unicode driver only).

The release is now available in source and binary form for a number of platforms
from our download pages at

For information on installing, please see the documentation at

     * MySQL Connector/ODBC is now compatible with MSVC 2017,
       while retaining compatibility with MSVC 2015:

          + Previously, Connector/ODBC binary distributions were
            compatible with projects built using MSVC 2015.
            Binary distributions now are compatible with
            projects built using MSVC 2017 or 2015.

          + Previously, Connector/ODBC source distributions
            could be built using MSVC 2015. Source distributions
            now can be built using MSVC 2017 or 2015.

          + Previously, the MSI installer accepted the Visual
            C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015. The MSI
            installer now accepts the Visual C++ Redistributable
            for Visual Studio 2017 or 2015.

     * Two informative text files were added: INFO_BIN contains
       information about the build environment used to produce
       the distribution, and INFO_SRC provides information about
       the product version and the source repository from which
       the distribution was produced. Source distributions
       include the INFO_SRC file only.
