CLR Turned Off In Azure SQL Database

Brent Ozar reports that Azure SQL Database’s CLR will be turned off:

Details are still coming in, but in the Reddit AMA for the Azure database teams (going on as we speak), it’s one of the users reports that they got an email that SQL CLR will be shut off in one week due to a security issue.

The cloud: at the end of the day, it’s just someone else’s server, and they can – and will – take tough actions to protect their product, their users, their security, and their profits.

I’m curious for more details.  I’d like to know if this is particular to Azure or affect on-prem installations as well.
