IIRC, the statically linked libmysql in the SDK is a 3.x version. You can use that MySQL driver version or you can write a binding to a newer libmysql client you wish. ;-)

  is this the place to talk about R3 ODBC ?
Seems as good as any to me.

Is there a newer version than 1.2.1 of the mysql-driver of Softinnov available? I tried to connect to MariaDB and got an error message
>> read mysql://localhost/mysql/test
** User Error: ERROR 1251 : Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MariaDB client
** Near: read mysql://localhost/mysql/test
You have the link to the newest version 4 messages above:

I've got two changes on mysql-protocol-41.r
the first one is a variable leakage:
-   read-packet: func [port [port!] /local packet-len pl status][
+   read-packet: func [port [port!] /local packet-len pl status tmp][
the second one I really don't remember what it does.. :
-               either find port/locals/capabilities 'protocol-41 [
-                   insert-query port data
-               ][
+               ; either find port/locals/capabilities 'protocol-41 [
+               ;   insert-query port data
+               ; ][
                    insert-all-queries port data
-               ]
+               ; ]

Is there any way to insert a NULL using parametrized query?
mysql: first open odbc://mydns
insert mysql "create temporary table t (a int)"
insert mysql "insert into t values (NULL)"  ; this works
insert mysql ["insert into t values (?)" none]  ; this doesn't
** Script Error: ODBC error: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Invalid string or buffer length
Hi Doc, is the mysql protocol R3 compatible ?
Protocol source is very clear, it looks like it might compatible with R3 or at least it can be with a little effort.
I'll get his to-sql function from the protocol source and use it to generate SQL of my parametrized query.

@Giuseppe I never tried, usually low-level port-related code is AFAIK, not compatible between Rebol2 and 3.
That said, I guess it could be ported without much efforts by someone knowledgeable in R3's port coding.

Shixin has a Rebol 3 version:

Wow !

I need help with %mysql-protocol.r v1.3.0.
I use it nicely with a mysql 5.5.49.
But I tried to use it with a mysql 5.5.53 server (on a different machine), and I get an error at the opening of the port! :

Hmm, I use mysql-protocol a lot, and I've never seen that type of error before.
