Description The Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server are PHP extensions that allow for the reading and writing of SQL Server data from within PHP scripts. The SQLSRV extension provides a procedural interface while the PDO_SQLSRV extension implements PDO for accessing data in all editions of SQL Server 2012 and later (including Azure SQL DB). These drivers rely on the Microsoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server to handle the low-level communication with SQL Server.
*This package contains only the SQLSRV driver.*

- Pull Request [#972](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/972) - Removed redundant calls to retrieve the number of columns or rows in the current query result set
- Pull Request [#979](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/979) - Added support for Data Classification Sensitivity metadata retrieval
- Pull Request [#985](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/985) - Fixed memory issues with Data Classification data structures
- Issue [#432](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/issues/432) - Having any invalid UTF-8 name in the connection string will no longer invoke misleading error messages
- Issue [#909](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/issues/909) - Fixed potential exception with locale issues in macOS

- Pull Request [#1001](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1001) - Fixed compilation issue with PHP 7.4 alpha
- Pull Request [#1004](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1004) - Fixed another compilation issue with PHP 7.4 alpha
- Pull Request [#1008](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1008) - Improved data caching when fetching datetime objects

- Pull Request [#1049](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1049) - Performance improvement for fetching from tables with many columns - cached the derived php types with column metadata to streamline data retrieval
- Pull Request [#1068](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1068) - Some cosmetic changes to source code as per suggestions from a static analysis tool
- Issue [#1079](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/issues/1079) - Support sql_variant types when using client buffers
[Limitations]
- No support for inout / output params when using sql_variant type
- No support for inout / output params when formatting decimal values
- In Linux and macOS, setlocale() only takes effect if it is invoked before the first connection. Attempting to set the locale after connecting will not work
- Always Encrypted requires [MS ODBC Driver 17+](https://docs.microsoft.com/sql/connect/odbc/linux-mac/installing-the-microsoft-odbc-driver-for-sql-server)
- Only Windows Certificate Store and Azure Key Vault are supported. Custom Keystores are not yet supported
- Issue [#716](https://github.com/Microsoft/msphpsql/issues/716) - With Always Encrypted enabled, named parameters in subqueries are not supported
- Issue [#1050](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/issues/1050) - With Always Encrypted enabled, insertion requires the column list for any tables with identity columns
- [Always Encrypted limitations](https://docs.microsoft.com/sql/connect/php/using-always-encrypted-php-drivers#limitations-of-the-php-drivers-when-using-always-encrypted)
[Known Issues]
- In Alpine Linux, the Client-Side Cursors feature may cause an access violation if both sqlsrv and pdo_sqlsrv are enabled. Either enable only sqlsrv or pdo_sqlsrv, or build PHP from source by compiling the drivers statically.
- Connection pooling on Linux or macOS is not recommended with [unixODBC](http://www.unixodbc.org/) < 2.3.7
- When pooling is enabled in Linux or macOS
- unixODBC <= 2.3.4 (Linux and macOS) might not return proper diagnostic information, such as error messages, warnings and informative messages
- due to this unixODBC bug, fetch large data (such as xml, binary) as streams as a workaround. See the examples [here](https://github.com/Microsoft/msphpsql/wiki/Features#pooling)
