Back around October 2009, we introduced  the process of interacting on a regular basis with the developers and users in the form of surveys.  Today, we are happy to introduce the ability to suggest and vote on feature scenarios for ODBC, SqlClient, DataSet and other technologies like JDBC and PHP through UserVoice.  Our UserVoice site http://mssqlconn.uservoice.com enables you to vote for your most important feature and even if you do not see it, you can enter your own.  This provide us with the ability to validate some of the requests we have got from developers, users and partners such as you as well as ideas that we have gathered internally as a part of our development process. 

We view you as a key stakeholder in the process that we have to identify areas for future investments.  The feedback you provide is valuable and each response will be read and will be treated with utmost confidence.

It's also important to note that other UserVoice sites (http://data.uservoice.com/forums/72025-ado-net-entity-framework-ef-feature-suggestions and http://data.uservoice.com/forums/72027-wcf-data-services-feature-suggestions) are alive and the teams are actively working on implementing the top suggestions.
