[ANNOUNCE] Hive ODBC Driver v2.5.20 Released

Master Collaborator

Hello CDH Users,

We are pleased to announce the release of Hive ODBC v2.5.20
driver. This release has the following fixes and enhancements:

Enhancements & New Features

  • Delegate Kerberos credentials. You can now have the driver forward your Kerberos user credentials to the server to simplify the authentication process.

  • Optimized Fast SQLPrepare behavior. The Fast SQLPrepare driver configuration option (the FastSQLPrepare key) is now disabled for non-SELECT queries. This ensures that the driver retrieves the necessary result set metadata at prepare time.

Resolved Issues

  • Unicode characters in parameter values causing errors.

  • Returning errors for some queries with dates in them.

  • Unable to create new tables when Unicode character types option set.
