Enhancements
  • OpenSSL library 1.0.2r has been replaced with version 1.0.2u. In addition to fixing multiple new vulnerabilities, version 1.0.2u also addresses the vulnerabilities resolved by version 1.0.2r.* 
    Version 1.0.2u of the OpenSSL library fixes the following security vulnerabilities:
    • x64_64 Montgomery squaring procedure used in exponentiation with 512-bit moduli (CVE-2019-1563)
    • Padding Oracle in PKCS7_dataDecode and CMS_decrypt_set1_pkey (CVE-2019-1563)
    • Compute ECC cofactors if not provided during EC_GROUP construction (CVE-2019-1547)
    • Installation paths in diverse Windows builds (CVE-2019-1552)

    Note: By default, the driver will attempt to load version 1.1.1 of the library; however, if the library cannot be loaded, the driver will fall back to version 1.0.2.

  • The Driver Manager for UNIX/Linux has been enhanced to support setting the Unicode encoding type for applications on a per connection basis. By passing a value for the SQL_ATTR_APP_UNICODE_TYPE attribute using SQLSetConnectAttr, your application can specify the encoding at connection. This allows your application to pass both UTF-8 and UTF-16 encoded strings with a single environment handle.*
    The valid values for the SQL_ATTR_APP_UNICODE_TYPE attribute are SQL_DD_CP_UTF8 and SQL_DD_CP_UTF16. The default value is SQL_DD_CP_UTF8.
    This enhancement is available in build 07.16.0398 of the driver manager.
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)
