    Version 8.0.0

      • The driver has been enhanced to support fetching access and refresh tokens at connection when OAuth 2.0 is enabled. When using the new dynamic authorization code grant, you can initiate an authorization code grant flow by specifying login credentials using the login prompt for your service, thereby providing a method to authenticate without fetching access and refresh tokens via the Configuration Manager or third-party application. In addition, the new Enable Login Prompt (EnableLoginPrompt) option has been added to enable this functionality. Refer to the user's guide for details.
        • Available: Driver version 08.00.0851 (B1528, U1311)
      • The installer program has been enhanced to support Azul Zulu JRE 11. As a result of this change, the installer has ended support for platforms that do not support Java SE 8 or higher. The installer supports the following operating systems after the enhancement:

        • Windows Server 2012 RC2 or higher
        • UNIX/Linux: Any operating system on a machine using a JRE that is Java SE 8 or higher (LTS version), including Oracle JDK, OpenJDK, and IBM SDK (Java) distributions.
