At DrupalCon SF 2010, Microsoft announced that it had introduced support for PDO (PHP Data Objects) in the second version of the SQL Server Driver for PHP. As noted on Softpedia, the latest version of the driver is designed to allow customers running PHP projects to take advantage of PHP's PDO style data access for SQL Server.


The most recent SQL Server Driver for PHP 2.0 offers support for PDO (PHP Data Objects).

"The most recent SQL Server Driver for PHP 2.0 CTP brings to the table a new Application Programming Interface (API) as defined by the PDO. This is only valid for version 2.0 of the driver. Older releases, such as v1.1, only feature the SQL Server Native API. It is important to underline that Microsoft has worked to present the native SQL Server application programming interface, and added the PDO API alongside it.

"'The SQL Server Driver for PHP 2.0 CTP is available for download at the Microsoft Download Center (installation through Web PI available as well). Don’t be surprised if you don’t find the source yet, we have packaged only the binaries for now. Rest assured that the SQL Server Driver for PHP 2.0 will be available as a shared source project (like current version 1.1) in our next public release. We expect the final version in the second half of this year,' Chaudhary promised."
