The first beta release of the SQL Server ODBC Driver for Linux is available for download! As announced in October, the “Multiplatform Team” (a.k.a. the “MPlat Team”) has released a preview version of a driver that will provide first-class access to SQL Server from applications running on Linux operating systems. The team is looking for feedback on this release to incorporate into their production-ready release, so try it out and let us know what you think. Here are the important links to get you started:
- Read more about this release
- Download the driver
- Read the documentation
- Ask questions and provide feedback
- Comment via Microsoft Connect
As I’ve said before, this is a huge step in our efforts toward interoperability. We’d love to get your feedback to make sure future steps are in the right direction.
