2017-06-29 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.043)
This version is the same as 4.041 with all its bugs and
limitations. In version 4.042 there were some changes to Unicode handling
that turned out to be causing issues with existing implementations.
While it is possible to argue that the old behaviour was wrong and buggy,
lots of applications and scripts were depending on this behaviour so it
is NOT a good idea to change this.
There were lots of commits since 4.041, we'll add those back bit by bit
in a future release, excluding the ones which cause problems.
2017-??-?? Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.042_01)

Libraries in mysql_config --libs output can be specified by library name
with the -l prefix or by absolute path to library name without any prefix.
Parameters must start with a hyphen, so treat all options without leading
hyphen in mysql_config --libs output as libraries with full path.
Partially fixes bug
Fix by Pali Rohár.
* Fix support for magic scalars (pali)
2016-12-12 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.041_1)
* Unicode fixes: when using mysql_enable_utf8 or mysql_enable_utf8mb4,
previous versions of DBD::mysql did not properly encode input statements
to UTF-8 and retrieved columns were always UTF-8 decoded regardless of the
column charset.
Fix by Pali Rohár.
Reported and feedback on fix by Marc Lehmann
Also, the UTF-8 flag was not set for decoded data:
* Return INTs with ZEROFILL as strings. Reported by Knarf, fix by Pali Rohár.
2016-11-28 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.041)
* Fix use-after-free for repeated fetchrow_arrayref calls when
Function dbd_st_fetch() via Renew() can reallocate output buffer for
mysql_stmt_fetch() call. But it does not update pointer to that buffer in
imp_sth->stmt structure initialized by mysql_stmt_bind_result() function.
That leads to use-after-free in any mysql function which access
imp_sth->stmt structure (e.g. mysql_stmt_fetch()).
This patch fix this problem and properly updates pointer in imp_sth->stmt
structure after Renew() call.
This is a medium level security issue to which the Debian security team
assigned identifier CVE-2016-1251. Discovered and fixed by Pali Rohár.
* auto_reconnect now also matches CR_SERVER_LOST, previously this only
Fix suggested by Wouter de Jong.
* Fix compilation fixes (Pali Rohár).
2016-11-19 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.040)
* Since 4.038 we had problems compiling on big-endian architectures, such
as MIPS, s390 and Sparc. Thanks to Salvatore Bonaccorso @ Debian project
and Vladimir Marek (
for reporting the issues. Fix by Pali Rohár.
Fix integer types when server side prepare statements are enabled
Fixed problems:
* SQL_BIGINT was incorrectly handled as 32bit MYSQL_TYPE_LONG type instead
64bit MYSQL_TYPE_LONGLONG which led to integer overflow/underflow
* 32bit MYSQL_TYPE_LONG was used for perl's IV storage when IV was 64bit
and 64bit MYSQL_TYPE_LONGLONG was used when IV was 32bit
* All unsigned types were handled as signed, so all high positive values
were treated as negative
* Numeric conversions in perl which led to overflow/underflow was ignored
even when mysql strict mode was enabled
* Test t/41int_min_max.t was running only for normal non-prepared statements
* Test t/40server_prepare.t used incorrect SQL type for big (64bit) integers
2016-11-15 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.039)
* Fix for security issue Out-of-bounds read by DBD::mysql CVE-2016-1249 (pali)
2016-10-30 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.038_01)
* Fix compilation of embedded server (pali)
* Fix compilation against libmariadbclient. First version by
H.Merijn Brand, improved by Bernt Johnsen @ Oracle.
* For efficiency use newSVpvn() instead newSVpv() where possible (pali)
* Correctly coerce fetched scalar values when mysql_server_prepare is
not used (pali)
* Add support for fetching columns of BIT type with
mysql_server_prepare = 1 (pali)
* Use correct format in printf instead of casting variable types (pali)
* Include errno.h for MYSQL_ASYNC because it uses errno variable (pali)
* Travis: also test on perl 5.22 and 5.24.
2016-10-19 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.038)
* Version 4.037_1 had fixes for MySQL 8.0 provided
Bernt Johnsen @ Oracle that were not in the Changelogs
* Fixes for compiling against newer libmysqlclient on Windows (kmx)
* Fix unit test for 40server_prepare_crash on Windows (pali)
* Perl's IV in scalar can store 64bit integer when perl was compiled
with 64 bit support (default on 64bit linux with gcc). Use this
feature and stores MYSQL_TYPE_LONGLONG as integers instead of strings
when possible. (pali,
2016-10-14 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.037_01)
* Newest versions of libmysqlclient and the MariaDB C connector no longer
export the __WIN__ macro. If this macro is not present we would not
compile in the poll.h-based async-support. Changed to use the _WIN32
macro instead. Thanks to Sergei Golubchik for suggesting the fix.
* Fix from Pali Rohár for use-after-free in prepared statements,
changes to bind logic, and added test 40server_prepare_crash.
2016-10-03 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.037)
* Security release to patch possible buffer overflow in unsafe sprintf with
variable length. Reported and fixed by Pali Rohár. This vulnerability
is present in all releases at least back to versions 3.0 of the
driver, which were released in 2005.
The CVE identifier for this vulnerability is CVE-2016-1246.
2016-08-23 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.036)
Stable version, to include all changes since 4.035.
2016-08-19 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.035_03)
* By mistake, when DBD::mysql was compiled against libmariadb, it
did not compile in SSL support.
Reported by Jitka Plesnikova @ Red Hat
* If the database test server was not on localhost and the test database was
not yet created, we would not correctly create the test database.
Reported by Vladimir Marek.
2016-08-11 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.035_02)
* Test 56connattr.t failed when run when performance schema is enabled, but
tests were run as a user with limited permissions.
Reported by Jérôme Étévé.
* In 4.033_03 we added a patch from Petr Písař @ Red Hat for a problem on
64-bit big-endian systems. The patch was applied but the unit test was not,
also, there was no entry in the change log.
Unit test provided by Vladimir Marek.
t/40server_prepare.t test failed on s390x platform. Server-prepared
values of types int, smallint, and tinyint are passed to application
as 32-bit integer. The same buffer was interpreted as long integer
by DBD::MySQL. This caused misaligned read/write and bogus
interpretation of the values.
* Remove dropdb, createdb, reload and shutdown admin functions from perldoc.
These are deprecated by the C API.
Use 'CREATE DATABASE..', 'DROP DATABASE...' and other SQL commands instead.
* Test rt75353-innodb-lock-timeout.t fails on MySQL Server 5.1 and earlier
because innodb_lock_wait_timeout is not modifyable per session.
* Test rt25389-bin-case.t does not work on MySQL Server < 5.1, reported by
2016-08-01 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.035_01)
* Apparently, on t/31insertid.t, there is one test that fails when compiled
against libmysqlclient 5.7 or up; issuing a SELECT statement on the same
database handle that previously executed an INSERT clears
$dbh->{mysql_insertid}, while previously this was retained.
* Removed appveyor.yml and mysql.mtest from CPAN releases.
* Converted README.pod to because of installation failures on
FreeBSD, reported by Don Randolph.

that next attempt to execute the prepared statement would segfault. This
work thanks to Rainer Weikusat!

* Small change to get utf8 data returned. One still has to:
$dbh->do("set character set utf8");
$dbh->do("set names utf8");

2005-09-26 Patrick Galbraith <> (3.0002_2)

execellent detective work!
* Small changes to Makefile.PL to make sure --ps-protocol works as
* Updated install.html with current info about prepared statements and FC
RPM/YUM packages.

* Prepared statement support is default now. To turn it off
a parameter 'mysql_emulated_prepare' must be turned ON
* Better error handling in mysql_internal_execute_ps (renamed
from mysql_internal_execute41). Also free the result if error -
that could have been a memory bug

* merged changes from 2.9005_1
* fix to blob in dbd_st_fetch (Alexey Stroganov
In case of BLOB/TEXT fields we allocate only 8192 bytes in dbd_describe()

table_info/column_info functions [Aaron Ross <>]
* Applied patch removing Jochen Wiedmann's contanct information and
also removing the restriction on CD ROM distribution.
[Jochen Wiedmen <>]
* The check for the innodb table type was broken so the transaction
tests were skipped even though the database supported transactions.
* :sql_types were not being inported in column info, so SQL_VARCAR was
thowing an error. Also, the :sql_types were not being pulled into
DBD::mysq::db package
* Patch for dbdadmin.t so that it respects username and password
[Alexey Stroganov <>]
* Fix for memory leak in bind_param() introduced in 2.9002
(2.9002 changed bind_param so that changing the value of a scalar
after binding would not affect what was passed to execute eg:
$foo = 'bar'
$sth->execute() -- $foo would contain 'bar')
[reported by <>]
* don't define dbd_discon_all so that mysql uses DBI's This fixes a
bug whereby DBD::mysql was dropping perl's destruct level.
* patch to myld so that it uses strict and fixes scoping problem
with $contents [Jochen Wiedmann <>]
* Modified Makefile.PL so that it gives a usage message
if any unknown options are passed in.
* patch to INSTALL.pod on how to link DBD::mysql against
a static libmysqlclient [Jochen Wiedmann <>]
2003-06-22 Rudy Lippan <> (2.9002)
* moved pod into from mysql.pod
* Changed the default behaviour of mysql_found_rows, so now
'UPDATE table set field=?' will return the number of rows matched
and not the number of rows physically changed. You can get the old
behaviour back by adding "mysql_found_rows=0" to the dsn passed
to connect.
* Updated type_info_all() to be more inline with
what DBD::ODBC returns.
* Added attribute 'mysql_auto_reconnect' that allows the auto reconnect
behaviour to be toggled. :
** NOTE** The behaviour of auto reconnect has changed. If
either the MOD_PERL or the GATEWAY_INTERFACE environment variable is
set, auto_reconnect will default to ON; otherwise auto_reconnect
will default to off. Earlier versions of this driver would always
try to reconnect to the database on error; however, this is dangerous
because table locks could be lost without the application knowing.
* Fixed a segfault with failed reconnects that were trapped in an
eval. The next tine DBD::mysql tried to reconnect, the process
would segfault.
* Added statistics attribute, 'mysql_dbd_stats' which returns
a hash ref that contains 2 keys 'auto_reconnects_ok' and
* Fixed bug where strings that were used in numeric
context were not getting quoted on execute(). Now all
parameters are bound as varchar by default.
**NOTE** this is a change in behaviour that MAY cause problems
with some SQL statements. If quoted integers, for example,
cause any problems, use bind_param(<column_id>, undef, SQL_INTEGER)
to force a column to be bound as an integer.
* Added get_info() method. See 'perldoc DBI' for more info
* Added column_info(). See 'perldoc DBI' for more info [Tim Bunce]

97.09.27 V1.1812
Added t/50commit.t to test suite.
Included <embed.h> in myMsql.h for redefining my_setenv().
Made AutoCommit, Commit and Rollback DBI conformant.
Fixed reconnect problems with Mysql: mysql_port was 0 on some
Added support of mysql_real_connect to myMsql.c.
Fixed Msql::errno returning a char*.
Added lib/
Fixed 'use Mysql' to 'require Mysql' in t/mysql2.t.
97.09.12 V1.1810
Fixed bug in dbd_st_FETCH_internal: newRV_noinc was used for
the return value. This resulted in invalid cache values,
reported by Michael Bletzinger
97.09.12 V1.1809
Adapted changes from DBD-Oracle 0.46 to 0.47; in particular
the files Driver.xst and dbd_xsh.h from the DBI distribution
are used now. (LongReadLen, LongTruncOk, ... are still
meaningless, but they are not that important for m(y)sql:
The complete results are in RAM anyways ...)
Fixed man page of DBD::M(y)SQL: "@names = $sth->{'NAME'}".
Added parameter completion for "set" command to dbimon.
97.09.08 V1.1808
Fixed bug in dbimon, a closing brace was missing causing a
syntax error.
Fixed problems in the Term::ReadLine::GNU support, reported
by Nem W. Schlecht (
Modified dbimon for internally using the Data::ShowTable
module. My thanks to Tim Bunce for the hint.
Compatibility fixes for SunOS and Solaris, supplied by
Neil Bowers (
97.09.03 V1.1806
Fixed bug in Mysql.xs: $sth->numfields dumped core because no
check for a result was done.
Fixed bug in lib/Mysql/ Mysql::Statement.as_string
did not check for $sth->numfields != 0.
Added patch from Nem W. Schlecht (
for Term::ReadLine::GNU support to pmysql and dbimon.
97.09.03 V1.1805
Fixed bug in DBD::mysql: Executing a non-select statement
always returned -1 (unknown number of rows) although the
correct number was returned by $sth->rows().
Fixed bug in DBD::mysql: strlen was executed on a NULL
value when mysql_fetch_rows returned a NULL field.
Added all _ListField attributes to statement handles.
Added support for "LISTFIELDS <table>" to $sth->execute.
Modified $sth->func("_ListSelectedFields") and
$dbh->func("<table>", "_ListFields") to use the new
possibilities; in fact these are only stubs now.
Added dbimon.
Added some internal attributes for dbimon to DBD::mysql:
format_default_size, format_max_size, format_type_name
and format_right_justification.
97.08.30 V1.1804
Added "fancy", "quote", "separator" and "escape" commands to
pm(y)sql.PL, patch supplied by Nem W Schlecht
Modified pm(y)sql.PL and pmsql.PL so that it automatically
adapts pm(y)sql for use with Msql and Mysql, respectively.
Makefile.PL and M(y)sqlPerl/Makefile.PL now automatically
adapt lib/M(y), lib/M(y)sql/ and
lib/DBD/ or lib/DBD/ for use in Msql-modules
or Mysql-modules; just copy these files, rename them and
run "perl Makefile.PL".
97.08.29 V1.1803
Added mysql_errno()
Modified perl modules for use of $driver and isa($driver).
Modified Msql.xs and Mysql.xs for use of Package and
Modified test for fetch of non-result sth in akmisc.t: Msql
returns number of rows and not an sth.
97.08.27 Removed use of TEXT_TYPE from pmysql and Mysql/
97.08.16 Modified mysql.xs, dbdimp.h and dbdimp.c for use in DBD::mSQL.
Now using Andreas König´s Makefile.PL from the DBD::mSQL
Added check for disabled '-lgcc' on Linux; this leads to a
missing __moddi3 symbol in libmysqlclient.a, when running
Added mysqlperl support.
97.08.02 Almost completely rewritten, with the exception of private
functions like _ListTables.
Implemented bind_param.
Test suite rewritten for portability.
Many sources moved from and mysql.xs to dbdimp.h; and mysql.xs are now close to Oracle.xs and
97.07.28 Added $dbh->quote method.
Modified internal use of "char* statement" to "SV* statement".
Modified use of mysql_query to mysql_real_query. (The above
three things should fix blob problems hopefully.)
Bumped revision number to 2.00 because of API changes:
The connect method works now as described in the DBI man
page, compatibility to DBD::msql seems deprecated.
Heavy internal modifications in order to use DBIS->get_fbav();
this gives compatibility to DBI 0.88.
Modified test suite to use Test::Harness.
Added blob tests.
DBD::mysql for DBI - Written by Alligator Descartes <>
96.06.22 Get new patched version 1.65 from
Added the memory bug patch to this.
96.06.18 Added pod documentation to and the possibility
to retrieve insert_id. This was done by Nathan Torkington.

Now a result is freed when one calls the 'finish' action.
The patch was done by & Monty
96.05.27 Changed Makefile.PL after suggestions from Raymond Wiker
96.04.25 Changed the README and fixed a typo in mysql.xs
Changed version to DBD-mysql-1.63.1 to have a reference to mSQL-0.63
96.04.19 Updated with differences from DBD:mSQL-0.63
96.11.03 Changed from DBD:mysql-0.60pl10 to DBD:mysql-1.0 by Michael Widenius
Original ChangeLog:
18/07/95: Started.
Version 0.0.0 ( Totally pre-alpha! )
19/07/95:22:00 Code now basically seems to work. I've got connection to
a database, and clean disconnection.
23:45 I'm now working on the statement cycle stuff, which I've
mapped out. It's just a case of coding, which shouldn't
take too long, hopefully.
Posted notice of approaching doom to perldb-interest.
20/07/95:01:25 Fetching appears to work OK now. I need to read the API on
msqlFieldSeek, since I can't work out why fetch is returning
the same row over and over!
21/07/95:09:22 Added a field into imp_sth (currow) which keeps track of the
current row that's been fetched from the result struct. If I
can fix the return codes coming from fetchrow, it'll work!
21/07/95:10:30 Pondered bind variables in cursors. Since there isn't a bind
function in the API, I may have to frig the way that prepare/
execute works, ie, move the call to msqlQuery *after* it's
done some parsing for bind values......Hm.
21/07/95:10:35 Twiddled some bits in the fetchrow cycle.
23/07/95:15:50 Fetch is fetching a row, but it's not returning it to the
calling cycle, so I need to fart about with the sv stuff, which
is not amusing me greatly!
26/07/95:23:42 Decided in agreement with Andreas that the first release is
to be 0.61!
27/07/95:14:14 Finally! It fucking works! After splendid quantities of
hacking around with the prepare/execute/fetchrow/finish cycle
it's actually returning rows correctly!
NOTE: The SV handling within dbd_describe is shot to buggery,
but I've kludged it in mSQL.xs::fetchrow to do a
sv_2mortal instead of a sv_mortalcopy.
27/07/95:14:22 Tidied up mSQL.xs::finish to do an msqlFreeResult. Annoyingly
enough, there's no return code to msqlFR, so I can't test
whether or not it's worked! Bah!
27/07/95:15:15 Altered test to do several bits and bobs. I'm testing INSERT
statements now. These only execute an msqlQuery, but the
stuff needs to continue to pass through the execute and finish
stages cleanly.......*sigh*
27/07/95:15:22 My dubious 'INSERT' check hack works, sort of. Pity it converts
the entire statement to lower case.....!
27/07/95:17:33 Twiddled some more stuff so it seems to do CREATE TABLE,
INSERT statements too. Of course, there's no error checking
yet, but it seems to be OK........Hm.
27/07/95:17:38 Mailed out a statement saying the 0.61 code would be up for
grabs as of Monday 31st July! Still waiting on Alpha reports.
27/07/95:12:11 Fixed the lower-case all the INSERT/CREATE &c. statement bug.
It now checks to see if you're in quotes.
28/07/95:xx:xx Got a report back from Andreas to say compilation barfs on
his Indy. Fixed a load of do_error bugs in dbdimp.c.
13/08/95:18:25 Finally got back to this after a rather long break. Fixed some
Makefile.PL bugs that were kicking about. Finally fixed
( or appeared to fix ) the strlen signedness bug in dbdimp.c
that may halt compilation on the Indy.
Emailed Karsten the debug info to see what's causing problems
on the NeXTStep platform.
14/08/95:13:48 Got email back from Andreas. signedness broke mSQL.xs as well!
Fixed that and emailed him a quick patch.
14/08/95:14:45 Andreas now has a successful compile. The tests are crap, but
appear to ( sort of ) work.
29/08/95:23:18 Converted driver across to new DBI format. It now appears
to compile, install and run fairly reasonably. There are
some serious messes that need cleared up in it, but it's
fundamentally OK, I hope. Announced for pl0 testing.
04/09/95:15:04 Started back on getting the 0.60pl0 out. Tidied up the parsing
of statements for INSERT, CREATE &c statements. It just takes
the first word of the statement now.
04/09/95:15:19 Looks OK. Tested against DBI 0.63 and looks reasonable.
Announced release of 0.60pl1 and put up for ftp.
20/09/95:15:20 Patched a load of stuff including NULLs, and local device
handling ( SV ). Released pl4, which was bogus. Released
pl5 which should fix those issues.
20/09/95:22:17 Fixed overhang of old DBI bug with DBIc_ENDING remaining in
DESTROY in mSQL.xs. Spotted by Marti Rijken and fixed.
( Hopefully! )
18/10/95:15:13 Added in the missing API chunks for ListTables, ListDBs
and ListFields.
ListFields isnae working, but I'll fix that sometime soon....
05/11/95:11:32 Fixed $sth->readblob to return undef. Fixed Makefile.PL,
dbdimp.h, mSQL.h, dbdimp.c for release of 0.60pl7. Also tested
'make test' which now works!
23/11/95:19:22 Fixed ListFields from the pointers given to me by Sven V.
24/11/95:03:13 Fixed error handling in all the func methods
24/11/95:13:01 Added 'NumRows' method to statement handles to return the
number of rows returned ( or affected ) by a statement.o
30/12/95:18:10 Altered to allow for hostname:port style connections
to known remote port machines. Sets ENV var since the
msqlConnect API call doesn't support port arguments.
30/12/95:18:15 Added 'length' key into the hash returned by ListFields, so
we can get the scale of the field.
24/03/96:22:34 Fixed bugs and upgraded versioning for perl5.002 to work
properly. Released as pl10
-> Lamentable lack of ChangeLog information here!
27/03/97: Tidied up things with regard to 0.61 release.
28/03/97: Patched NULL as undef bug
You can’t perform that action at this time.
