OLE DB Driver 18.5 for SQL Server is released, bringing support for SQL Data Discovery and Classification and Azure Active Directory Service Principal authentication to the driver along with a number of fixes. The driver can be downloaded directly from Microsoft.
Fixed a memory leak in theIBCPSessioninterface involving bulk copy operations ofsql_variantdata type.
Fixed bugs, which resulted in incorrect values being returned for SSPROP_INTEGRATEDAUTHENTICATIONMETHOD and SSPROP_MUTUALLYAUTHENTICATED properties.
Previous versions of the driver returned truncated values of the SSPROP_INTEGRATEDAUTHENTICATIONMETHOD property. Also, in the ActiveDirectoryIntegrated authentication case, the returned value of the SSPROP_MUTUALLYAUTHENTICATED property was VARIANT_FALSE even when both sides were mutually authenticated.
