Meet Bhagdev reports that a new version of the SQL Server ODBC driver for Linux is available:

What’s new

  • Native Linux Install Experience: The driver can now be installed with apt-get (Ubuntu), yum (RedHat/CentOS) and Zypper (SUSE). Instructions on how to do this is below.

  • AlwaysOn Availability Groups (AG): The driver now supports transparent connections to AlwaysOn Availability Groups. The driver quickly discovers the current AlwaysOn topology of your server infrastructure and connects to the current active server transparently.

  • TLS 1.2 support: The driver now supports TLS 1.2 connections to SQL Server.

These are some nice additions.  None of them are groundbreaking, but they add up to a nice release.  Click through for instructions on how to install the driver; it got a lot easier for supported platforms.
