Version 8.0.0 

Enhancements
  • The driver has been enhanced to allow you to customize how HTTP response status codes are processed by the driver. By configuring the input REST file, you can define error responses for codes that are returned by the service, including driver actions and error messages.*
  • The driver has been enhanced to support OAuth 2.0 authentication.*
  • The driver has been enhanced to support requests for endpoints that use custom HTTP-headers.*
Features
  • The driver supports SQL read-only access to REST API endpoints that return JSON payloads. 
  • The driver supports all ODBC Core and Level 1 functions and some Level 1 and Level 2 features. 
  • The driver supports standard JSON data types and additional data types through data type inference. 
  • The driver supports using internal memory or a configurable REST file to define REST responses and relational mapping.
  • The driver heuristically maps data types, eliminating the need to define native data types in most scenarios.
  • The driver supports basic, HTTP-header based, URL-Parameter based and no authentication.
  • The driver supports the handling of large result sets with configurable paging and the Fetch Size connection option. 
  • The driver includes a new Tableau data source file (Windows only) that provides improved functionality when accessing your data with Tableau.
Changed Behavior
  • The following Windows platforms have reached the end of their product lifecycle and are no longer supported by the driver*:
    • Windows 8.0 (versions 8.1 and higher are still supported)
    • Windows Vista (all versions)
    • Windows XP (all versions)
    • Windows Server 2003 (all versions)
