[Added]
– Support for PHP 8.1 RC 1
– Support for Ubuntu 21.04 and Alpine 3.13
– Support for Apple M1 ARM64 hardware (requires [MS ODBC Driver 17.8+](https://docs.microsoft.com/sql/connect/odbc/linux-mac/install-microsoft-odbc-driver-sql-server-macos?view=sql-server-ver15)
– Feature Request [#795](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/issues/795) – adding support for [Table-valued parameters](https://github.com/Microsoft/msphpsql/wiki/Features#tvp)
[Removed]
– Support for Ubuntu 16.04
[Fixed]
– Pull request [#1260](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1260) – cleaned up redundant code
– Issue [#1261](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/issues/1261) – simplified get_field_as_string and made it more robust – pull request [#1265](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1265)
– Pull request [#1262](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1262) – simplified parse_param_array in sqlsrv
– Pull request [#1267](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1267) – replaced the obsolete MACRO ZVAL_NEW_ARR with array_init
– Pull request [#1275](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1275) – fixed warning compiling core_stmt.cpp by mlocati
– Pull request [#1290](https://github.com/microsoft/msphpsql/pull/1290) – updated list of supported processor architecture
[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)
