Or the change from PyQt5 5.6 (Windows binaries from the Riverbank website) to 5.7 (wheels from PyPi)? The database driver dlls are present in the ...\Qt\plugins\sqldrivers of my PyQt5 installation. Moreover I can connect to MSSql using ODBC and to MariaDB.
The old PyQt installers contained a locally built copy of Qt that had the database specific drivers statically compiled with the Qt SQL plugins. The new wheels use the Qt builds provided by the Qt project - those builds use the database specific drivers but don't include them. You need to obtain and install them yourself - usually by installing the database package itself.
