MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.0.5がリリースされました。


MySQL Connector/ODBC バージョン5.0.5(最初のベータ版リリース)がリリースされました。もはやConnector/ODBC 3.51を事前にインストールする必要はありません。(ただし、このリリースは、3.51のインストールと共存できます。)現在、このバージョンは、前のアルファ版リリースとは異なり、自身のセットアップライブラリを使用しています。


メタデータの要求を実行の場合、INFORMATION_SCHEMAで利用可能な情報に依存する為、Connector/ODBC 5.0はMySQL-5.0とそれ以降のバージョンで使用するよう計画されています。

MySQL Connector/ODBCは、MySQL AB社のGPLあるいは OEM ライセンスに基づき使用を許諾されます。

Current State of Implementation
This driver is meant to be used with MySQL-5.0 and newer, as it relies
on information available in INFORMATION_SCHEMA when fulfilling requests
for metadata.

The driver is feature complete, and has started going through internal
testing. At this time it is known to be able to link tables in Microsoft
Access and perform some ADO-related functionality. Our goals for
internal testing are to cover the set of applications that are most used
with MySQL and ODBC, including Microsoft Office applications (including
Access), Crystal Reports, ADO and OleDB.

With this release we're asking the user community to give detailed
feedback on which applications do not work with the driver, as we don't
have access to all possible combinations of MDAC, Microsoft Office
service pack and hotfix combinations for our own internal testing. We're
also especially interested in results from testing in-house or
commercial applications that don't have widespread availability.

Reporting Bugs with this Release
Please report bugs you find with this release at

For more expedient processing of your Connector/ODBC 5.0 bugs, please
make sure to record the version number with a “5.0” in it so that we
find them quicker when putting together fix lists.

Please include driver and driver-manager traces with your bug reports,
as this helps us isolate the bug much quicker. If your application works
with Connector/ODBC 3.51 but not 5.0, please enclose driver and driver
manager traces from 3.51 as well.

It is also very helpful if you include which version of MDAC and
associated DLLs you are using. Microsoft's MDAC version checker makes
this relatively straightforward. Instructions for installing and running
the MDAC version checker are at

Roadmap for Future Releases
Future beta releases will introduce new platforms (the code is written
in a cross-platform manner, we're just working out some small issues,
starting with Linux and then progressing to other Unix platforms).

We also include a graphical MSI-based installer in a future beta release
for the Microsoft Windows platform.

This beta does have some debug-related code, and is not entirely
optimized (it is sometimes "chattier" with the database server than 3.51
for example), as the first goal was to have something that is written
exactly-to-spec for the ODBC API specification, and "back off" where
testing shows that we can (or need to, in the case with some
applications). Future releases will be more performance-oriented than
the first few beta releases.
