Brian Swan has a new post to his blog today about the latest release from the SQL Server Driver team at Microsoft - the newest version of their driver for PHP.

The main focus of this release has been to provide PDO support via the PDO_SQLSRV driver with the aim of giving PHP developers the ability to leverage the benefits of writing database-agnostic code and having the option of using SQL Server.

There's some new features that come with this release including Windows authentication, streaming, "scrollable" cursors and SQL Azure support. There's plenty more to it than just that, so be sure to check out Brian's post for the full details.
