This list provides an overview of all changes in ODBC driver version 24.0.0. ODBC driver version 24.0.0 was released on 2024-03-11.

Changed Behavior

Changelog Entry Changed Behavior
18806 The installation path for the JDBC and ODBC drivers on Mac OS has been revised to improve clarity and organization, ensuring a more intuitive user experience.
18720 The SDK package is no longer delivered standalone and instead is delivered with the ODBC package
18545 When using the SDK, including the parameter EXA_CONNECT_TIMEOUT is no longer supported and will instead raise the error "Unknown connection attribute type"
18391 The ODBC driver will now validate the connection string against all known parameters. If an unknown parameter is included in the connection string, an error will be returned and the connection attempt will fail.
17593 Drivers are renamed from "EXASoltuion" to "Exasol". Any error messages showing "EXASolution" will now show "Exasol" instead.
15633 Connecttimeout parameter is removed from all drivers. If it is used, the driver will throw an error stating that connecttimeout is invalid parameter.
15067 The ODBC driver now supports nanoseconds in the fractal part. Returning the value as TIMESTAMP_STRUCT also will contain nanoseconds. The string representation from the ODBC driver will keep the ODBC format like before, but the number of fractal digits will be the same like set in the DB session.
13443 The ODBC Driver now exclusively utilizes libexaodbc.so. Other libraries (libexaodbc-dd.so, libexaodbc-uo2212.so, libexaodbc-uo2214lv1.so, and libexaodbc-uo2214lv2.so) are removed.
