  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2k.*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2j.* .
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2h.* 
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2g.*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2f.
  • The new CryptoLibName and SSLLibName connection options allow you to 
     designate the OpenSSL libraries used when SSL is enabled.
  • The driver has been enhanced to support Kerberos Authentication. 
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)
