|Operating Systems||POSIX HP-UX AIX Unix Solaris Other Linux|
|Implementation||PHP Perl Other C|
Release Notes: SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 Express are supported. For example, the driver supports the new SQL Server 2008 data types: spatial (GEOGRAPHY and GEOMETRY), date/time (DATE, TIME, DATETIMEOFFSET, and DATETIME2), FILESTREAM, and HIERARCHYID. To preserve data integrity, the driver can now use iconv to convert character data from the SQL Server encoding to the encodings that are commonly used by Linux/Unix client machines (UTF-8, EUC-CN, EUC-JP, EUC-KR, EUC-TW, and so on).
