* Fix use-after-free for repeated fetchrow_arrayref calls when
  mysql_server_prepare=1

  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
  matched CR_SERVER_GONE.
  Fixes http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=27613
  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
  (https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=844538)
  and Vladimir Marek (https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=118835)
  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)
  (https://github.com/perl5-dbi/DBD-mysql/pull/68)
* 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)
  Fixes https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=88006
* 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
  (https://github.com/perl5-dbi/DBD-mysql/pull/56)
* 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, https://github.com/perl5-dbi/DBD-mysql/pull/57)

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
   (https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=116959)
   (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1366773)
* 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.
   (https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=112072)

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.
  (https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=115980)
* 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.
   (https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=57266)
* 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
  GAAS.

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.
  (https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=108000)
* Removed appveyor.yml and mysql.mtest from CPAN releases.
* Converted README.pod to README.md because of installation failures on
  FreeBSD, reported by Don Randolph.
  (https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=114177)

* Fix reference to MySQL manual, chapter Character Set Support, suggested
  by Slaven Rezić (https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=114148)
* Improve documentation on current database, suggested by Vladimir Marek.
   (https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=112587)

2015-12-18 Patrick Galbraith, Michiel Beijen, DBI/DBD community (4.033_02)
* Compile against libssl by default. This allows to connect against remote
  MySQL servers using SSL. Previously this was only achieved with an explicit
  switch provided to Makefile.PL - if for some reason you can't or don't want
  to link against libssl, you can use the new --nossl switch to Makefile.PL.

  work thanks to Rainer Weikusat!
* Removed all 'FindNewTable' calls in all tests. Just use 't1' for all tests to
  simplify things. Plus, this is how MySQL internall tests.

    Converted Steve's dbi.pl script to expose this problem to 40bindparam2
    test.
  * Fix to mysql_st_internal_execute to keep from passing undefined dbh

    this!
  * Fix to parse_params, mysql.xs dbh->do, and bind_param to deal with
    passing substr to "do" for placeholder value. Thanks Martin Waite for

  * Fix dbd_st_finish which closed the handle prematurely (Martin Evans)
  * Compile issues (Martin Evans)
  * Small change to get utf8 data returned. One still has to:
      $dbh->do("set character set utf8");
      $dbh->do("set names utf8");

    to get utf8 back and even then you only get it back if the
    column is defined as utf8 in mysql.

2005-09-26 Patrick Galbraith <patg@mysql.com> (3.0002_2)
  * Fixed bug in dbd_st_execute where imp_sth was being
    imported unecessarily, when only imp_dbh is needed. This caused a
    core dump in some cases. Thanks to Andy Maas at Proofpoint for his
    execellent detective work!
  * Small changes to Makefile.PL to make sure --ps-protocol works as
    advertised.

  * 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
  * Added a simply 'do' to t/35prepare.test to see if you can turn
    off prepared statements in the 'do' call.
  * Cleaned up a LOT of cruft. Added more 'caveat' blurbage to old

    uint not being available on windows unless you include
    my_globals.h in dbdimp.h, which also breaks on unixen!
  * Removed // comments from mysql.xs (thanks Bodo Bergman!)

  * Fix that sets mysql_server_prepare to 0 if SQL statement is 'SHOW ...'
    which is not supported by prepared statement API currently

2004-10-28 Rudolf Lippan <rlippan@remotelinux.com> (2.9015_1)
	* Merged Makefile.PL from 2.9005_3
	* Bumped version number to 2.9015 for release of Dev Branch. Which
	  will become 2.9020 when tested and merged into HEAD.
	* fixed typo/compiler warning in bind_param_guessing
	  '*testchar' should have been 'testchar'.

2004-10-20 Patrick Galbraith patg@mysql.com (Dev-2_9 - 2.9005)

  * merged changes from 2.9005_1
  * fix to blob in dbd_st_fetch (Alexey Stroganov ranger@mysql.com)
  In case of BLOB/TEXT fields we allocate only 8192 bytes in dbd_describe()
  for data. Here we know real size of field so we should increase buffer
  size and refetch column value

2004-07-25 Patrick Galbraith patg@mysql.com (2.9004)
  * Prepared statement support
* Use of mysql_stmt_* API (>= 4.1.3)
  * mysql_shutdown fix
* MySQL Embedded Server support (Alexey Stroganov)
  * Fixed link failure on MacOSX
  * Cleaned up tests
  * Fixed various compile warnings


2003-10-26  Rudy Lippan  <rlippan@remotelinux.com> (2.9003)
	* Applied patch from Aaron and Chuck that added basic testing of the
	  table_info/column_info functions [Aaron Ross <aross@plusthree.com>]
	* Applied patch removing Jochen Wiedmann's contanct information and
	  also removing the restriction on CD ROM distribution.
	  [Jochen Wiedmen <joe@ispsoft.de>]
	* 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 <ranger@mysql.com>]
	* 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:
	     $sth->bind_param(1,$foo);
	     $foo = 'bar'
	     $sth->execute() -- $foo would contain 'bar')
	  [reported by <shildreth@emsphone.com>]
	* 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 <joe@ispsoft.de>]
	* 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 <joe@ispsoft.de>]

2003-06-22  Rudy Lippan  <rlippan@remotelinux.com> (2.9002)
	* moved pod into mysql.pm 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
	  'auto_reconnects_failed'.
	* 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]

2003-03-03  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (2.1026)

	* Fixed the handling of case insensitive file
	  names. Jan Dubois, <jand@ActiveState.com>
	* lib/Mysql.pm (listdbs): Added support for user

	* Makefile.lib (InitializeMsql): Added /usr to the search path
	  for mSQL headers and libraries.
	* tests/msql1.t (unctrl): Renamed "character" column to
	  "chrctr". ("character" is not a valid column name under
	  msql-2.0.4.1)
	* dbd/dbd.xs.in (DBD::mysql::ping): Now using mysql_ping().
	* dbd/dbdimp.c (_MyLogin): Added mysql_compression.

1998-06-25  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.19_19)

	* dbd/dbdimp.c: Added $sth->{mysql_type} and
	  $sth->{msql_type}, which are in fact just what
          $sth->{TYPE} used to be. $sth->{TYPE} is now
	  returning portable SQL types.
	* MANIFEST: Removed nodbd/Makefile.PL.in.
	* Makefile.PL: Made test databases configurable.


1998-06-14  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.19_18)

	* Makefile.PL: dbdadmin.t was missing in the list of tests
	* nodbd/nodbd.pm.in (query): Now really returning undef in
	  case of errors. (Possible Perl bug?)
	* Makefile.PL: Fixed realclean attribute of WriteMakefile.
	* Makefile.PL (Init): Setting $Data::Dumper::Indent to 1.
	* Makefile.PL (InitializeMsql): Fixed query for mSQL, if
	  only one version gets installed.
	* dbd/dbdimp.c: Now calling mysql_init before mysql_connect.
	* dbd/dbdimp.c: For whatever reason, MyGetProtoInfo was
	  treated like returning a char* under Mysql.


1998-05-16  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.19_17)

	* Makefile.PL: Fixed typo in InitializeMsql (dbiDriver = mSQL1).
	* dbd/dbdimp.c: mysql_real_connect is now using a dbname
	  argument


1998-05-07  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.19_16)

	* dbd/dbdimp.c: ChopBlanks no longer chops from the left side.
	* dbd/dbdimp.c: Fixed memory leak in dbd_st_FETCH_internal.


1998-04-13  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.19_15)

	* Added the DBD::mSQL1 and Msql1 drivers.
	* Fixed minor icompatibilities with perl 5.005.
	* nodbd/nodbd.pm.in (errmsg): Msql->errmsg() should
	  now recognize error messages in $DBI::errstr (hopefully ...)


1998-04-03  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.19_13)

	* dbd/dbdimp.c: msqlGetProtoInfo returns an int, not a
	  char* (Erik Bertelsen, erik@mediator.uni-c.dk)
	* dbd/dbdimp.c: Fixed typo in _MyLogin: User was set to
	  NULL when password had zero length. (Erik Bertelsen,
	  erik@mediator.uni-c.dk)
	* dbd/dbdimp.c: One more time fixing reconnect problems with Mysql
	  and old client libraries (without mysql_real_connect it's just too
	  ugly! :-(


1998-03-15  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.19_11)

	* Makefile.PL: Fixed Bugs in _OdbcParse and version numbers.
	* dbd/dbimon.in: Fixed bugs in export mode (Nem W. Schlecht
	  <nem@abattoir.cc.ndsu.nodak.edu>)


1998-02-26  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.19_10)

	* M(y)sqlPerl now emulated by DBI drivers.
	* dbd/dbdimp.c: Added $dbh->{'info'} and $dbh->{'thread_id'}
 	  (mysql only)

1998-02-06  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.19_03)

	* dbd/dbd.xs.in: Fixed $dbh->quote(undef) to return "NULL"
	  and not 'undef'.
	* Requires DBI 0.93. (I assume it still works with 0.91, but
	  whoever reinstalls Msql-Mysql-modules can well reinstall
	  DBI.)
	* dbd/dbdimp.c: $sth->fetch* now inactivates the sth in case
	  of errors or no more data; this follows the specification of
	  the 'Active' attribute.
	* Added a missing DROP TABLE in ak-dbd.t.
	* Added ODBC style DSN's like DBI:mysql:database=test;host=localhost.

1998-01-20  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.19_02)

	* dbd/dbd.xs.in (quote): Fixed "int len" to "STRLEN len"; the
	  Irix compiler refuses to compile this. (A little bit picky,
	  a warning would really be sufficient here ...) My thanks to
	  Simon Matthews <sam@peritas.com>.
	* Added "LISTINDEX" handling.
	* Makefile.lib: Now always linking against libgcc.a when using gcc
	  and compiling for MySQL.
	* tests/mysql.dbtest: Now using "IS NULL" in SQL queries instead
	  of "= NULL". (Required as of mysql 3.21.22)

1998-01-18  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.19_01)

	* README: Added hint for not using msqlperl mailing lists
	  except for MsqlPerl and MysqlPerl related things.
	* Makefile.lib: Modified version number to contain underscores,
	  so that CPAN considers 1.18xx as the correct version.
	* dbd/dbimon.in: Leaving pager mode worked unreliable; fixed.
	  Andreas Koenig <koenig@anna.mind.de>
	* tests/akmisc.t, tests/mysql.t, tests/mysql2.t: Minor modifications
	  in the connect parameters for passing the test suite under
	  Windows/NT.

1998-01-07  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.1900)

	* dbd/dbd.xs.in: Implemented $dbh->quote() in XS.
	* dbd/dbd.xs.in: Added '_Admin' function.
	* dbd/dbd.xs.in, dbd/dbdimp.c: Added automatic reconnect when
	  mysql returns CR_SERVER_GONE_ERROR.
	* Makefile.lib (InitializeMysql): Modified order of -I statements
	  (Inside MySQL distribution it can happen that headers of recently
	  installed DBI versions are used instead of the correct headers.)
	* nodbd/nodbd.xs.in, nodbd/typemap: Supressed warning for
	  undef'd argument in connect method. (Chris Holt,
	  <xris@migraine.stanford.edu>)
	* nodbd/nodbd.xs.in: Fixed definition of 'HOST' attribute
	  in dbh's.
	* Makefile.lib (InitializeMsql): Fixed typo that made MSQL_HOME
	  useless. (Ray Zimmermann, <rz10@cornell.edu>)
	* Makefile.lib (InitializeMysql): Fixed typo "lib/mysqlclient.a"
	  to "lib/libmysqlclient.a". (Michael 'Monty' Widenius,
	  <monty@tcx.se>)

1997-12-31  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.1823)

	* Added support for mysql_use_result, requested by Jesse
	  Eversole <jee@marketdriven.com>.
	* nodbd/typemap: Replaced sv_isa with sv_derived_from so that
	  subclassing works, reported by Gisle Aas <gisle@aas.no>.

1997-12-11  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.1822)

	* dbd/myMsql.c: DSN's like DBI:mysql:test;hostname=$host;port=$port
	  haven't been working.
	* dbd/dbimon.in: POD modifications, suggested by Jesse N. Glick
	  <jglick@sig.bsh.com>
	* INSTALL: Added hints for "make test".
	* nodbd/statement.pm.in (as_string): Still bugs in the new
	  as_string method, thanks to Frank D. Cringle <fdc@cliwe.ping.de>.
	* Enabled SQL_DATE, SQL_TIME, ... (available in DBI 0.91)
	* Makefiles: Modified postamble to use a common function which calls
	  module dependent hooks.
	* nodbd/nodbd.xs.in/fetchinternal: Fixed the problem RETVAL == NULL.

Wed Nov 19 19:50:29 1997  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.1821)

	* dbd/dbd.pm.in: Added AUTOLOAD for constants like
	  DBD::mysql::FIELD_TYPE_STRING or DBD::mSQL::CHAR_TYPE.

	* xtract, dbd/Makefile.PL.in nodbd/Makefile.PL.in: Removed
	  first line in case users perl is different from
	  /usr/local/bin/perl.

	* All Makefiles: Added chmod for xtracted files.

	* Added bindparam.h for reuse in DBD::pNET.

	* Makefile.lib: Some (hopefully) upward compatible modifications
	  for integration into the MySQL distribution.

Sat Nov  1 17:04:27 1997  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.1820)

	* xtract: Added "#xtract <driver>" ... "#endxtract".

	* nodbd/statement.pm.in, nodbd/nodbd.pm.in, nodbd/pmsql.in:
	  Using "#xtract now".

	* Reorganized source tree (again).

	  its return value now

Sat Oct 25 16:30:01 1997  Jochen Wiedmann  <joe@ispsoft.de> (1.1817)

	* Makefile.PL,dbd/Makefile.PL.in,nodbd/Makefile.PL.in: Added

	* dbd/dbdimp.c: Added automatic type detection to bind_param

	* nodbd/statement.pm.in: Modified as_string for more efficiency
	  under MySQL. Added maxlength and isnum methods. (Direct attribute

	* t/ak-dbd.t, t/akmisc.t: Added tests for mysql's insertid
	  feature.

	* Merged source trees of Mysql and Msql.

	* lib/M(y)sql.pm: Added some words on createdb, dropdb and
	  shutdown to the man page. Missed by Ray Zimmermann
          (rz10@cornell.edu)

	* dbd/dbd.xs.in: Implemented $dbh->do as a direct XS call.

	* dbd/dbd.xs.in, nodbd/nodbd.xs.in: Suppressed some warnings
	  due to uninitialized RETVAL. George Hartlieb
	  (ghartlieb@mail.arc.nasa.gov)

1997-09-29  Andreas Koenig <koenig@anna.mind.de> (1.1814)

	* t/50commit.t: Fixed printing of warning message when
	  commit issues a warning.

	* lib/DBD/mSQL.pm (connect): Fixed warning in connect, if
	  attrhash is present.

	* pmsql.PL: Fixed use of Msql 2 constants in @typelabel definition
	  and similar things.

	* lib/Msql/Statement.pm: Fixed use of Msql::TEXT_TYPE without

DBD::mysql for DBI - Written by Jochen Wiedmann <joe@ispsoft.de>

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
	  systems.
	  Added support of mysql_real_connect to myMsql.c.
	  Fixed Msql::errno returning a char*.
	  Added lib/Bundle::Mysql.pm.
          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
	  <Michael.Bletzinger@ssa.crane.navy.mil>

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 (nem@abattoir.cc.ndsu.nodak.edu).
	  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 (neilb@cre.canon.co.uk).

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/Statement.pm: Mysql::Statement.as_string
	  did not check for $sth->numfields != 0.
	  Added patch from Nem W. Schlecht (nem@abattoir.cc.ndsu.nodak.edu)
	  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
	  (nem@abattoir.cc.ndsu.nodak.edu).
	  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)sql.pm, lib/M(y)sql/Statement.pm and
	  lib/DBD/mSQL.pm or lib/DBD/mysql.pm 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
	  StPackage.
	  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/Statement.pm.

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
	  distribution.
	  Added check for disabled '-lgcc' on Linux; this leads to a
	  missing __moddi3 symbol in libmysqlclient.a, when running
	  mysql.so.

	  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 mysql.pm and mysql.xs to dbdimp.h;
          mysql.pm and mysql.xs are now close to Oracle.xs and Oracle.pm.

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.

96.06.18  Added pod documentation to mysql.pm and the possibility
	  to retreive insert_id. This was done by Nathan Torkington.

	  Fixed memory bug that sql results never was freed.
	  Now a result is freed when one calls the 'finish' action.
	  The patch was done by gareth@netcom.co.uk & 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 mSQL.pm 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.
