[Fixed]
– Pull Request [#1127](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1127) – removed TSRMLS macros in preparation for PHP 8 by remicollet
– Pull Request [#1136](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1136) – improved performance when handling decimal numbers as inputs or outputs and removed unncessary conversions for numeric values
– Pull Request [#1143](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1143) – if an exception occurs when executing a query, it will not change the output parameters

– Pull Request [#1165](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1165) – set query timeout without using LOCK TIMEOUT, which saves an extra trip to the server
– Issue [#1170](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/issues/1170) – when fetching large data types such as ntext, check more than only the display size – pull request [#1172](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1172)
– Pull Request [#1205](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1205) – minimized compilation warnings on Linux and macOS

– Pull Request [#1227](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1227) – addressed static code analyis issues
[Limitations]
– No support for inout / output params when using sql_variant type
– No support for inout / output params when formatting decimal values
– In Linux and macOS, setlocale() only takes effect if it is invoked before the first connection. Attempting to set the locale after connecting will not work
– Always Encrypted requires [MS ODBC Driver 17+](https://docs.microsoft.com/sql/connect/odbc/linux-mac/installing-the-microsoft-odbc-driver-for-sql-server)
– Only Windows Certificate Store and Azure Key Vault are supported. Custom Keystores are not yet supported
– Issue [#716](https://github.com/Microsoft/msphpsql/issues/716) – With Always Encrypted enabled, named parameters in subqueries are not supported
– Issue [#1050](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/issues/1050) – With Always Encrypted enabled, insertion requires the column list for any tables with identity columns
– [Always Encrypted limitations](https://docs.microsoft.com/sql/connect/php/using-always-encrypted-php-drivers#limitations-of-the-php-drivers-when-using-always-encrypted)
[Known Issues]
– This preview release requires ODBC Driver 17.4.2 or above. Otherwise, a warning about failing to set an attribute may be suppressed when using an older ODBC driver.
– Connection pooling on Linux or macOS is not recommended with [unixODBC](http://www.unixodbc.org/) < 2.3.7
– When pooling is enabled in Linux or macOS
– unixODBC <= 2.3.4 (Linux and macOS) might not return proper diagnostic information, such as error messages, warnings and informative messages
– due to this unixODBC bug, fetch large data (such as xml, binary) as streams as a workaround. See the examples [here](https://github.com/Microsoft/msphpsql/wiki/Features#pooling)
