Released: Microsoft.Data.SqlClient 2.0 Preview 3

The SqlClient team is moving forward with continuous updates and improvements to the Microsoft.Data.SqlClient data provider for SQL Server. Our plan is to provide GA releases twice a year with two preview releases in between. This cadence should provide time for feedback and allow us to deliver features and fixes in a timely manner. This third 2.0 preview includes over a dozen fixes and changes over the previous 2.0 preview release.


For the full list of changes in Microsoft.Data.SqlClient 2.0 Preview 3, please see the Release Notes.
