Microsoft Drivers 5.9.0 Preview/Beta 2 for PHP for SQL Server Released


We recently released the next preview/beta of the Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server, version 5.9.0-beta2. This preview/beta release has been built with PHP 7.3+ and tested on all supported platforms.

 

Note: We have changed from « preview » to « beta » versioning terminology in order to support the new Pickle distribution channel. Pickle supports PECL packages so the drivers for PHP will be available via both channels.

 

Notable items about this release include:
