In the about page on the Libreoffice web site for Base it mentions “native-support drivers for some of the most-widely employed multi-user database engines: MySQL/MariaDB” but the only thing I can find is ODBC/JDBC drivers. Some of the databases I am connecting to are quite large and ODBC/JDBC crashes and is VERY slow. I usually write SQL directly using HeidiSQL, but would like to be able to use a gui for others on my team. Is there a native connection directly to MySQL/MariaDB?
