Hi all, we are delighted to share the Preview of the Microsoft Driver 4.1.8 for PHP for SQL Server. The new driver enables access to SQL Server, Azure SQL Database and Azure SQL DW from any PHP 7+ application on Windows, Linux and Mac.
The major highlights of this release are:
- SQLSRV and PDO_SQLSRV
- Added a workaround for a bug in unixODBC 2.3.4 when connection pooling is enabled.
- Fixed the issue in MAC such that which driver is loaded first no longer matters.
- SQLSRV only
- PDO_SQLSRV only
Let us know how we are doing and how you use our driver by taking our March pulse survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YDFJ23X
