This is just to let you know, that development version 0.92 works with
Azure SQL. There seems to be very little information about this in The
Net, so I thought to share my FreeTDS experiment with the community.
Looks like most people don't use the Azure SQL -service, but run their
own DB in a separate virtual machine. That way you have full control on
DB-access, but in this case I chose to use the in-house SQL. I even used
PHP PDO with dblib from an Azure virtual machine and everything was ok.
The only real issue I had was to use one of the newest TDS-versions
FreeTDS has. For example TDS 4.0 and 5.0 won't work.
