In collaboration with our partner Simba we are making available a new version of the Simba ODBC driver with CQL connector for DataStax Enterprise 5.0. Built on top of the DataStax C/C++ driver version 2.4.1, this new version works with DataStax Enterprise 5.0 and Apache Cassandra 3.0+, adds support for new data types (smallint, tinyint, time, date), and also introduces the ability to use whitelists or blacklists when configuring connections. For complete details about the release please check the releasenotes (PDF).

The new version of the driver, can be downloaded from the DataStax drivers page. The Installation and configuration guide is also available in PDF format.
