Microsoft.Data.SqlClient 5.0 Preview 1 has been released. This release contains improvements and updates to the Microsoft.Data.SqlClient data provider for SQL Server.
Our plan is to provide GA releases twice a year with two or three preview releases in between. This cadence should provide time for feedback and allow us to deliver features and fixes in a timely manner. This first 5.0 preview includes fixes and changes over the previous 4.0 GA release.
We appreciate the time and effort you spend checking out our previews. It makes the final product that much better. If you encounter any issues or have any feedback, head over to the SqlClient GitHub repository and submit an issue.
