    Note: OpenSSL library 1.0.2j has been replaced with version 1.0.2n.
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2h.*
    Note: OpenSSL library 1.0.2h has been replaced with version 1.0.2n.
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2g.*
    Note: OpenSSL library 1.0.2g has been replaced with version 1.0.2n.
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2f.
    Note: OpenSSL library 1.0.2f has been replaced with version 1.0.2n.
  • The new CryptoLibName and SSLLibName connection options allow you to
    designate the OpenSSL libraries used when SSL is enabled.
  • The new MinLongVarcharSize connection option allows you to fetch
    SQL_LONGVARCHAR columns whose size is smaller than the minimum
    imposed by some third‐party applications.
  • The new VarcharThreshold connection option allows you to fetch columns
    that would otherwise exceed the upper limit of the SQL_VARCHAR type for some
    third‐party applications.

Version 7.1.5

Certifications
  • Certified with Red Hat Enterprise 7.0
  • Certified with CentOS Linux 7.0
  • Certified with Oracle Linux 7.0
Enhancements
  • The OpenSSL library was upgraded to version 1.0.0r, which fixes the CVE‐2015‐0204 (FREAK) vulnerability. See "RSA silently downgrades to EXPORT_RSA [Client] (CVE‐2015‐0204)" at https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20150108.txt for more information.
  • The new Crypto Protocol Version connection option allows you to specify the cryptographic protocols used when SSL is enabled. This option can be used to avoid vulnerabilities associated with SSLv3 and SSLv2, including the POODLE vulnerability.

Version 7.1.4

Certifications
  • Certified with Windows 8.1
  • Certified with DB2 11 for z/OS
Enhancements
  • The new KeepAlive connection option allows you to use TCP Keep Alive to maintain idle TCP connections.

Version 7.1.3

Certifications
  • Certified with CentOS Linux 4.x, 5.x, and 6.x
  • Certified with Oracle Linux 4.x, 5.x, and 6.x
  • Certified with DB2 V10.5 for Linux, UNIX, Windows (LUW)

Version 7.1.1

Certifications
  • Certified with Red Hat 6.3
  • Certified with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012

Version 7.1.0

Certifications
  • Certified with DB2 v9.8 pureScale
Enhancements 
  • Returns result set metadata for parameterized statements
    that have been prepared but not yet executed.
  • Supports parameter arrays, processing the arrays as a series of
    executions, one execution for each row in the array.
  • Provides a connection option that allows you to configure
    the driver to report that it supports transactions, although Hive does not support transactions. This provides a workaround for applications that do not operate with a driver that reports transactions are not supported.
  •  The driver provides support for the following standard SQL
    functionality:
    • Create Index, Create Table, and Create View
    • Insert
    • Drop Index, Drop Table, and Drop View
