Per the following link, DB Library based interfaces (ntwdblib.dll, FreeTDS) are deprecated in Server 2005:

SQL Server 2005 uses the new SQL Native Client (SQLNCLI) API. This *may* be compatible with pdo_odbc.

If the above is indeed true, it would be nice if there were a warning on the MSSQL pages regarding SQL Server 2005 compatibility.

Thanks for all the great code, and sorry to "bug" you ;-)

dblib should continue to work to talk to sql server (the network protocol hasn't changed enough to break this); it's only the dblib API that has been deprecated (for a long while now).

pdo_odbc works with sql server 2005; I performed a decent amount of tests against the beta version using both the traditional and the newer "SQL Native Client" versions of the ODBC drivers.

What should be documented then?
