Please get SSDT versioning under control
The versioning for SSDT is currently insane. The version that ships with VS 2017 is labeled 15.1.6180.210, however the latest from the download page is labeled Release number: 15.6.0 and Build number: 14.0.16162.0?
The version for 2015 is labeled release number: 17.4 and build number: 14.0.61712.050
How is anyone supposed to know which version is which? 2015 is labeled version 17 and 2017 is labeled version 15? The build number for 2017 is 15.x but the newest version is 14.x?
Are you purposefully trying to make our heads explode?
Microsoft makes me crazy. The version numbering is indeed mad and the latest version of the SSDT for VS 2017 (standalone installer) is incompatible with Teradata and Attunity drivers. Use old version 15.8.0 for that. Period, no explanation, no solution foreseen.
I totally agree with you. They couldn't make it more confusing than it is now.
