Meet Bhagdev announces a new version of the SQL Server ODBC driver for Linux:

Added

  • BCP API support

    • You can use functions through the ODBC driver as described here on Linux.
  • Support for user-defined KeyStoreProvider for Always Encrypted

    • You can now user-defined/created AE Column Master Key keystore providers. Check out code samples and more information here.
  • Ubuntu 16.10 support

    • Developed a package Ubuntu 16.10 for an apt-get experience.
  • Dependency on the platform unixODBC Driver Manager instead of the custom unixODBC-utf16 Driver Manager

    • This avoids conflicts with applications/software that depends on the platform unixODBC Driver Manager.

No groundbreaking additions, but there are a couple nice fixes in the update.
