Microsoft.Data.SqlClient 5.2 Preview 2 has been released. This release contains improvements and updates to the Microsoft.Data.SqlClient data provider for SQL Server.

Our plan is to provide GA releases twice a year with two or three preview releases in between. This cadence should provide time for feedback and allow us to deliver features and fixes in a timely manner. This second 5.2 preview includes fixes and changes over the previous preview release.



  • Added new property RowsCopied64 to SqlBulkCopy. #2004


  • Fixed socket synchronization issue during connect in managed SNI. #1029
  • Fixed issue with SqlConnectionStringBuilder property indexer not supporting non-string values. #2018



For the full list of changes in Microsoft.Data.SqlClient 5.2 Preview 2, please see the Release Notes.


To try out the new package, add a NuGet reference to Microsoft.Data.SqlClient in your application and pick the 5.2 preview 2 version.


We appreciate the time and effort you spend checking out our previews. It makes the final product that much better. If you encounter any issues or have any feedback, head over to the SqlClient GitHub repository and submit an issue.
