The SQL Server ODBC Driver for Linux is Available!
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.
